Just a short post to get my blog started, but I'd like to talk about the proposed Government shutdown. I am an active duty member of the Marine Corps right now, so a Government shutdown means no pay for yours truly. As a Lance Corporal, I don't make enough to live off of savings, so I am living paycheck to paycheck. I have a couple hundred bucks to make it between paychecks after my bills are paid. Even a delay in my pay would set me behind on my bills and begin to ruin my spotless credit that I have worked so hard for.
I'd like to be enlightened on how a Government shutdown even solves the problem. Yes, it will create a massive amount of revenue toward the federal government to help with the budget, and it will delay (only delay) the approval of a budget. How does it SOLVE the problems with the budget, though? All I see is a giant inconvenience to the tax payers because Congress is too immature to come together and create this budget.
