The Democratic senate caucus is meeting at 8:30 PM.
The senate has a vote scheduled at 10:00 PM.
Will the government shut down?
Do we care?
The Northern District of Texas saw fit to send out an email alerting lawyers that even if the government shuts down, the court will be open Monday and would update lawyers on the possible reduction of services in the coming weeks if the shut down continues.
The SDFLA? Silent. But Rumpole knows the court's have a reserve fund that will last about a week to ten days, at which point money to pay clerks and PDs runs out. Stay tuned.
So how will this affect you?
Social Security? Payments will go out.
Federal parks, museums, zoos? Abierto! Closed until further notice.
The Mail? "Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow, nor Gloom Of Trump, shall stay these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."
Air Traffic Controllers? "You're cleared ILS niner right, contact ground control at 112.5"
Defense, NORAD, etc? Operating as normal.
From Occupied America, where Obama and Boehner aren't the only ones to shut down the government, fight the power!
