The Democrat filibuster of passing a temporary budget has shutdown non-essential personnel, so the IRS helpline is not being manned, among other things.
The military? Still on active duty across the board….they just won’t get paid for it. Is this any way to run things? …. To provide for America’s security? There will be some checks going out to soldiers and sailors on Feb 1, but that’s pay for January…up until the day of the shutdown. After that, the military will continue to work but not be able to make their own ends meet.
Of course, the very Congress that has failed the country, the Congress people who have forced this shutdown….they’re getting paid. It’s mandatory checks for them. Some members have said they want their checks held too, until the military gets paid. The few are all Republicans. Not a single Democrat name on the list.
