    Yes. Any type of federal loans will not be processed during the shutdown. Including student loans.

    I believe Obamacare is already in effect (since Thursday). As of now, if you don't have insurance you can go and get it. Congress can't agree on the appropriations that will keep the country running for next 6-10 weeks. So if this is over by then, we might end up right back into another shutdown.

    Government shut down? Well it's not like they've been doing much for this country any Goddamn way so it's business as usual if you think about it.

    And here is where I stopped reading. Yes, all media is biased to some degree but Fox is up-the-butt obvious about it's bias.

    ​The UK's just as shit if you didn't know.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    If the Republicans in the House are as concerned about democratic processes as they claim, then why not allow a vote on the Senate measure which would be open to Republicans and Democrats. That way the whole House would vote.

    By imposing the "Hastert" rule, the Republicans are preventing a full House vote and then claiming that the process is undemocratic. Blocking a vote involving their colleagues is a version of voter suppression and disenfranchisement. It is unconscionable and a form of tyranny by the minority.

As of 40 minutes ago, the government shutdown is in effect.

    So, what's going to happen? Hundreds of thousands of federal employees will be out of a job. National parks and museums will be closed. Absolutely no passports will be processed and/or issued. There will be no garbage pick up in Washington D.C (They generate about 500 tons of it in 1 week). I can't find any solid information on this, but to my understanding, anyone in the military will work w/ out getting paid. They may have passed a bill within the last week that would pay military workers in the event of the shutdown...I'm not really sure about that one, so let me know. When and/if this is over, these people may or may not be paid back.

    Fortunately, USPS will still function and as well as social security. Funny thing is, medicaid, medicare, Obamacare, and all things related will be unaffected by this. Which leads me to wonder why they're even doing it...

    I believe the last time this happened was in 1999 and lasted for about a month.

    Military and national security still receive full pay in the event of a government shutdown.
