Michael illustrates some glaring facts about the latest big scare perpetrated by proponents of big government, the so called “shutdown” of the US government. For example the Department of Defense announced the awarding of 94 new contracts worth more than 5 billion dollars – the day right before the “government shutdown”. The ” shutdown” has not prevented the new two billion dollar NSA spy center from opening up.
Approximately 1,350,000 “essential” federal employees are continuing to work during the “shutdown”.
Every entitlement program from food stamps, unemployment insurance, social security to medicare are being fully funded.
And of course all Senators, The President and members of Congress and their staffs will get paid.
Rational people don’t call this a catastrophe.
