I know there are other government workers on NT. So with the government shut down looming, wanted to get some opinions on it. Do you think it will happen? What are your plans for the furlough? Some background info http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/sep/29/us-government-shutdown-house-delay-obamacare My rudimentary understanding (feel free to correct me): Republican's don't want to fund obama care...they will agree to a government funding bill if they can delay healthcare reform for a year....democrats don't want that. Bs politics: Dem's low-key would be happy if the gov't shuts down since really it looks bad on the Republican's because they wouldn't agree to terms...and they are pro gov't idealistically (generalization). I work at NASA personally. I have no plans for the furlough other then being on NT...A LOT....and since i entered no fap october....a wholllle lot of GTAV and Kindgom Hearts...and PES.
