' Psst. No shutdown during a 'government shutdown' '

  1. "Social Security checks would still go out. Troops would remain at their posts.
    Furloughed federal workers probably would get paid, though not until later.
    And virtually every essential government agency, like the FBI, the Border Patrol and
    the Coast Guard, would remain open.
    That's the little-known truth about a government shutdown. The government doesn't
    shut down."
  2. During the Clinton era wasn't the "shutdown" only for like 6-12 days lol. What a shutdown that was.
  3. Didn't stocks and bonds rally during that period? :D
