If you are a federal employee that is not getting a paycheck, and you are hungry, and you live in the Springfield, Missouri area, then you can go the Ozarks Food Harvest and get free food.

BUT, you should keep track of the dollar amount of "free" food you receive, and send a check back to them when you get your "back pay", so those that don't work for the federal government and are out of a private sector job, can get free food, as they will not get any "back pay" when they are able to go back to work.

"[color=left=#ffffff]T[/color][color=left=#ffffff]Ozarks Food Harvest is the Feeding America food bank for southwest Missouri, serving 270 nonprofit organizations across 28 Ozarks counties.

There should be a law stating if Congress/President don't pass funding bill by 1 Oct every year then they basically work for free until they do. No paycheck, no time counting towards their retirement after only 5 years. Republicans are trying to pass a bill to prevent future shutdowns. If Congress doesn't pass the funding bill by 1 Oct then budgets are reduced 1% every 90 days until they do. Democrats won't allow this since they can't hold the country hostage when they don't get their way. Congress' benefits really need to be adjusted as they are a lot different from "normal" federal workers.

How does that work? Do they pay back the unemployment money when they finally get paid? Or do they end up "double dipping" and get paid by both?

there is actually a Constitutional Amendment.....the 27th, or better know as the John Boehner Amendment...

No law, varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of representatives shall have intervened.

I only have one cousin left working in the federal government. She's been in the EPA for 40 years. She doesn't give a rats *** about the shutdown. It gives her more time to work (covertly) on the Trump 2020 reelection campaign. She worked on both of Reagan's.

I agree with the concept, just not the details. First, I think we should have a Constitutional Amendment requiring the federal government to have a balanced budget, the only exemption being in time of declared war or natural disaster, requiring a 2/3 vote of both chambers to enact. It should also include a clause that should congress fail to create such a budget by the end of the fiscal year, that an automatic budget would be created with each agency receiving the percentage of the new fiscal years income equal to that of the previous year. And all members of both chambers terms would immediately expire, and new elections would be held within 30 days, of which those who's terms were expired would be ineligible to be a candidate.

Plain and simply, the corrupt scum need limits, and harsh consequences to do their jobs. I know it will never happen, especially with the domestic enemy involved, but we can certainly wish...

Media found lot of people living paycheck to paycheck in the fed during the shutdown. They ran stories on how people dont have money for food etc......1 missed pay period and these people are screwed?
Goes to show many are living beyond their means if they don't have a penny in a savings or rainy day account.

Id be for something similar; just not 30 days. If they can't balance the budget, they can't run for relection.

Elected positions shouldn't involve a retirement plan at all. It was never meant to take the place of a career. People like Schumer who have never worked an actual job in their lives are not qualified to represent the interests of those who do.

The thing is that a lot of people with absolute nothing in terms of reserve funds aren't even living extravagantly, the cost of living is just so out of control.

Calling a Fed employee an idiot is akin to defining "redundancy."

This is precisely why we have a Federal Gov't. (So idiots can have jobs too.)

Notice I didn't separate the 2 major political parties here, as they BOTH SMELL THE SAME....

I heard a radio interview with a DC area Uber driver this morning. He said he normally makes $1700 a week - down to about $400 a week since shutdown!
