Opinions Please: How long will the government be shut down?
I'm guessing for 8 weeks.

Won't those furloughed workers also lose their health insurance benefits? Will they have to pay COBRA insurance?

I believe this shut down is planned to shake people up into supporting DEEP CUTS in the budget that would have been opposed staunchly without this shock measure.

They create chaos, and things get so bad that the solution, slashing social security, Medicare, and entitlement programs, would be accepted as a lesser of the evils.

Since the government is the largest employer in our nation, that means this will be the largest layoff in the history of this country occurring tonight at midnight!

Thanks for submitting your opinion. I know that is possible, but this time they already did too much in advance to prepare for it to really go down, so that I why I believe it this time.

It could be forever. They are working on Bretton Woods 2 as we discuss this. They will roll out a new reset. I DO NOT WANT THEM in control of the new government. If there is a collapse of this one and a new government put in place with all new currency say backed by gold, we do not want these snakes to be in control of it again!

I imagine there are laws to prevent eviction of soldiers in the event that the government stays shut down until the next election.
