Budget Talks Stall; Government Shuts Down At Midnight

Scroll down for updates…

U.S. President Barack Obama looked like a beaten man after emerging from a White House budget meeting with GOP members last night. The budget talks between the White House and the Republicans have failed, and now the government shutdown that everyone is dreading looms large.

All nonessential government services — including the processing of IRS refund checks – will cease at the stroke of midnight tonight. The government shutdown will throw millions of people out of work temporarily.

Troops who protect our homeland will not get paid; social security checks will not go out libraries, museums, courthouses, city parks and recreational centers will all be shut down. Edit: According to loyal reader keiond23, who works for the SSA, social security checks will go out.

The trickle down theory will go into effect as most major cities are cut off from government funding.

The shutdown could affect city nonessential services such as garbage collection and even MARTA transit service might roll to a halt.

Americans are venting their frustration on networking websites. A facebook group is organizing an event to dump garbage on House Speaker John Beohner’s front lawn. Boehner is a Republican.

Former civil rights leader Jesse Jackson compared the government shutdown to civil war.

Meanwhile, Obama, 49, and his family will travel to Williamsburg, VA today to unwind and get in a little rest and relaxation.

Update I:

According to the LA Times, a planned vacation by the Obamas to Williamsburg, VA today has been canceled. The White House and Congress remain committed to resolving the budget dispute to avert a government shutdown tonight at midnight.

    This is a flucking Fail all the way around. Stop blaming Obama’s azz for everything. Damn, we all know how you feel. But this shyt here is serious. And is it really a vacation if he still has to hold meetings? This man has school-aged kids who deserve to have their vacations. So, until you run for President and FAIL, you have no room to judge him. It’s so easy to sit back and talk about it. But what have you done for the country lately? Hell, what have you done for anybody lately? :waiting:

    Not Obama’s fault. And Dubya spent more time palying hooky from the White House than any president I can remember.

    Besides, I heard that the leaders from both sides may have come to an agreement but they have to get their respective parties on board before they can announce anything.

    They might extend the budget through the weekend and make it official as soon as Monday.

    This upsets me, because I am a member of The North Carolina Army National Guard. These people knew that was happening WAYYY before, we even got to this point. What also upsets me, is the fact that people forget about our troops across seas. If the government cant afford to pay Soliders their $900 paycheck, then how in the WORLD would they be able to pay out a $450,000 life ins policy for anyone KIA during this time of greed and ego. Some of these Soliders are the sole providers of their household and for even 1 pay check to cease, could cause major hurt. Its not cool. There are many MILLIONAIRES and BILLIONAIRES in the US that could quickly turn our economy around, but are so GREEDY and could careless about the very people, who made this country free. Have we mentioned the many celebritys who will be vacationing while our troops will be payless?

    S.N. everything isnt President Obama’s fault. Remember he’s just a figure head. The real power come from those in the House and Senate. Lets take a step back and think about that.

    renegadesince1985 says:

    So the link you posted about his “vacation” clearly states that this no fly zone is dependent on the outcome of the budget talks. :rolleyes:

    This is not Obama’s fault…I actually applaud the Dems for not caving into the Repubs budget cuts the will raise my taxes and give breaks to the rich. Oh they will also cut medicaid, SSI, eliminate planned pregnancy and cut Pell Grants.

    I will go protest with that Facebook group! I’ve been asking for Boehner’s address since last week!

    And Obama cannot give in to the Repubs!! Did ya’ll see what they want to cut?

    They’re asking to cut Medicaid, Medicare, Pell Grants, Planned Parenthood, EPA, and THEN cut taxes by 10% for the top earners int he country while raising it for the rest!!!

    I need my money but for the greater good, I’d rather the Dems not CAVE! It’s more than evident that the Repubs are trying to socially caste the middle and lower classes.

    The situation we are in is really ****ed up but I will not point one finger at my President. Luckily my govt’t position is considered essiental, I will be paid at one point, my biggest issues is my school closing down. Im supposed to graduate in May and I dont know how much impact this will have.

    I believe that if we do get shutdown it will be for the better in the long run. Those Reps are being real grimey and I think its bests for my future that the Dems stand their ground.

    Either way, if the we do indeed get shutdown, my thoughts and prayers are with the people who will be drastically affected by this, especially the troops.

    Man SR you got some serious selective reporting issues. Obama and the Dems where given a proposal for 66billion in cuts the dems didnt want to cut the programs that repubs wanted cut so they found other places and met the 66billion dollar mrk that the repubs set (mind you this is supposed to just be a budget issue not policy). After all of that the repubs said wait we want more. Come on son and it was report last night that the final issue is that planned parent hood in DC is federally funded and the teabaggers/repubs want all federally funded abortions cut. Which is stupid by the way.

    The Democrats have compromised a lot on this spending bill. They’ve gone from no cuts for FY11 to billions. The problem is Republicans want to add policy riders to the budget and now is not the time. They need to pass the budget and argue these riders regarding Planned Parenthood later! If the government does shutdown the Repubs and the crazy Tea Party members will take the fall because anyone with half a brain can see the Dems have made concessions.

There are people who will throw dirt on President Obama, but glorify NeNe Leaks in Miami or Rhianna, but what about our troops? Our troops (firemen, police officers) place their lives on the line everyday and are raally going to be affected by this. I know they aren’t the only ones being affected, small businesses, SSI, ect…

    I guess overall, Im saying we as a people have to do better. The government has to WAY better.

    I didn’t see Sandra post how GE is paying ZERO in taxes, or that more money is being allocated in some states to prisons rather than schools. People really need to wakeup.

    Furthermore, Republicans are said to be cheering behind the scenes for a shut down I guess they forgot what happened last time they did this to President Clinton. Almost all of those donkey’s got voted out of office.

    I agree. And even if we avert this shutdown, we got a bigger problem once ya’ll see what the GOP Paul Ryan has proposed for the 2012 budget.

    They are gunning hard for the lower classes and minorities- we’ll be indentured servants around here soon. But I doubt that the Moderate Repubs want a shutdown. Boehner himself has already said that if we shutdown, it spells “DOOM” for the Republicans. And many of them who were against caving previously have already gone on record as saying: “we’ll just have to fight the policy battles later.”

    So….I honestly think that int he 11th hour- this will get settled. I’m almost willing to bet my possibly nonexistent next paycheck on it.

And Dramatic Sandra Marta never stopped running it was a normal day. Sure there will be a few mishaps but as a republican myself i honestly have to say this isnt the democrats fault. The republicans of this cycle will do anything in their power to fight against everything obama does. im not the biggest fan of obama because he wont stand up for himself however the man is obviously doing the best he can do. remember no matter what president is sitting in office it will always be chaos and there is only one reason why: As long as there are no term limits for senators our nation will never move forward. you have senators who have been in position since 1900 and their ideals arent going anywhere. cycle out the old and bring in the new thats the only way this “change” in america will happen…. *drops the mike, exits stage left*

    Military personnel get paid EVENTUALLY! MEantime, they’re working for free. How the hell should that be looked at as a NORMAL paid holiday?

    Paid holidays come IMMEDIATELY after the holiday, not EVENTUALLY. And during “paid holidays” even those who aren’t essential, get a PAID holiday as well. Everybody else besides congress, essential personnel and the troops are finna have UNPAID holidays. You know what they call that where I’m from: “Involuntary Unemployment.”

    Obviously you have not been paying attention- I’m a fed worker. Yes- we all KNEW that last time, we got backpay which is why you didn’t hear much about this from fed workers at first this year. The “panic” started a month ago when congress already started passing the measure to NOT backpay us this go around.

    It shouldnt be that damn funny to watch the melee because unlike times past- backpay aint happening. It’s already been told to us by our chief a while ago.

    I’m not for females using abortion as another form of birth control because it’s not. I think that should be an option when you don’t have any other option not just because it’s just more “convenient”.

    As for the government paying for it in general, you have a point. But without Planned Parenthood, where would those that really have no other option go? We could end up going back to back-alley abortions then.

    as far as raising a child i think like this: if you are willing to take the risk and you do end up with child then want to be a complete dead beat parent and hit the club while your mom takes care of your baby, you should be arrested point blank because the child never asked for you to be a joke to society. we need to start stepping up to the plate as individuals and represent the african american community better. there are a lot of us who are educated yet its the image of deadbeats that make us all look bad. to see a woman in the mail room in my office with 10 inch fluorescent green nails and blue hair is ridiculous. She should want better for herself because society looks at this exact scenario and laughs. people would rather steal the governments money living on section 8 but driving a bmw? really? we’ve got it all twisted. i know i just went off on a rant but our community can do so much better but it starts with us. it used to take a community to raise a child but these young parents are know it alls and have made our situation bleak. *sigh*

Case in point: my man’s 20 year-old godsister just had a baby a month ago.

Her mom is incarcerated, she lives with an aunt that does not give her ANY money to care for the baby’s personal needs and she does get assistance through WIC and a medical card. Having said all that, lil mama gets cash for her and her baby by braiding hair and is a freshman on the honor roll and loves that lil big headed boy of her’s to death! I know she’s the norm but, I also know she CAN’T be the only. I know her life is hard but, she’s making the best she can of it and I honestly feel in my heart that in the end, her and her baby will be ok. I truly don’t feel it is or should have been my or anyone else’s place to force her to have an abortion.

    I have an aunt who was forced to have one because she was young and that heffa right now today will sit under a table and bawl her eyes out for them babies today. Everyone can’t handle that shyt either.

    @renegadesince1985 – Preach on! The problem is the parents. Our (30+) parents weren’t worried about being our friends so we had respect for the barrier and didnt want to disrespect our parents. Nowadays children are raising children as their friends so the kids don’t respect their parents. They are buddies; why would their parent be mad? Why do they need to be responsible. Children don’t care about embarrasing their parents anymore. This was what kept us in check as children when I was growing up. The separation of children and parent.

    ____________________________________

    Rene they USED to do that here in the states back when it was less common for girls to get pregnant. Now it’s like a badge of honor to be pregnant in high school. Most of the girls I knew have multiple babies by the time they graduated but in their defense, most of them also went on to earn degrees and are doing quite well for themselves.

    I would agree though, American society glorifies teen pregnant way too much!

    @Yso
    I think it should be 1 of 2 choices really: forced abortion, or forced adoption for a couple that is unable to conceive. There are too many couples out here with the finances, love, care and time to give to a child but are unable due to no fault of their own and they deserve to have the chance to love and raise a child before some of these selfish/crazy whores who see these babies as paychecks, accessories like purses, or impediments and later end up killing them.

    And it needs to be an enforced law that is EQUAL on all fronts. Nobody with or without money should be able to get around it. PERIOD.

    Why should the governement be responsible for people’s irresponsible birth control practices. Pro-choice people are always preaching, “It’s a woman’s body. She should be able to have an abortion if she wants.” Yes, it is her body, and there’s that good ole invention called BIRTH CONTROL Use it; it does wonders for those pesky, unwanted babies. Or, I have a better idea, if you can’t afford a child, keep your legs closed. Penis + vagina can = baby. Sex is risky. There are women who use abortion like birth control. So the governments supposed to take care of that too. It’s not anyone else’s fault if you decide to lay down, get pregnant, and then have to raise a child you can’t take care of. That’s your problem, especially in this day and age when it can be prevented!

    StillASassyOne says:

    I didn’t start seeing pregnant girls in school until I went to a public (predominately Black and lots of lower income) high school after many years of private school with mostly rich, white kids. Pregnant chicks were EVERYWHERE, some who already had kids. One of my classmates was pregnant (I was in the 10th grade) and was on her 2nd. I saw her again as I passed her on a bus stop around age 19 and asked her about her TWO sons and she PROUDLY let me know that she NOW had THREE sons AND a daughter.

    After that 10th grade year, finished up high school in a predominately white and very affluential county….didnt see NARY a pregnant girl there. I can’t figure out what causes the polar opoositesof the spectrum for the life of me.

    As of right now our military check on the 15th has been cut in half. I have car payments, life insurance, phone bills, and electric bill. On the 1st there will most likely be no check at all. That means no groceries for my kids, no gas to get my kids to school, no nothing. To make light of this situation and to make snide remarks about “JUST” Obama is p*ssing me the heck off today. Every single person in government, whether democrat or republican would get a b#$*@ slap from me if I had enough money to get to DC. Every single idiotic one!!!!!!!!!!!

    “libraries, museums, courthouses, city parks and recreational centers will all be shut down” – What difference will that make? It’s not like most communities are getting any of those benefits anyway.

    This has got to the worst country on the face of the earth. No universal healtcare…no education…WTF!!! Yet, the US has money for everything else. Look how much money they are using to fight these unwarranted wars!!! Everytime a natural disaster happens in another country, there goes more money being pumped into other countries while there are children starving, undereducation or uneducated and without healtcare in this country, yet they have money for everything else. Katrina happened in this country, yet the ppl in Louisiana are still doing without.

    Let’s keep it real, Sandra Mae –

    “Vacations” as it relates to Obama are SINGLE days off. Not actual VACATIONS.

    And why doesn’t the president get to play golf in his leisure time? Don’t heart surgeons when they’re on call? Realistically, you can be president from the backseat of a Pinto because everything you need is right there with you.

    Every President takes vacations – and damn it, if I had the weight of the free world on my desk, then I’d play a round of golf too – actually, I don’t play golf, so I’d “call in sick” just to take a nap!

    Lady_L says:

    It was stated on the radio this morning that President Obama would not make his planned trip if this issue is not resolved. Aslo Sandra it was stated that this was not a trip for rest and relaxation. Terry Mc Millian said this morning on her twiiter “tired of this 2 1/2 yr racist circus. Never have I seen so much over hatred and envy of a President”

    I couldn’t agree with her more. My grandmother use to tell me people WILL NEVER accept a Black Man in the white house…I don’t think this has anything to do with Obama being a Democratic President its only because he is a Black president.

    Why even vote? They show you every day that they don’t give a dam about any of us. If you vote Republican or Democrat…makes no difference, they are only there to make their pockets fatter at the expense of working class people. Eff this country and their “democratic system” or lack thereof. They are all full of isht. What kind of tax cuts do rich ppl really need? Why is it the poor never get a tax cut? For goodness sake, GE make over $81 billion and it is not doing its taxes. This country is full of isht!

    This is not Obama’s fault. The goal of the GOP is to cancel as many social programs as they can and keep the filthy rich with fat pockets. I don’t have a problem with people disagreeing with the President’s policies. But, I don’t understand how year after year people with continually vote against and argue against their own self interests. . All we have to do is cut the defense budget and this would be settled but the GOP and the Teaparty reps, won’t let that happen. Iraqis have free health care, new buildings and roads on our dime. That needs to cease!

    when a deal is made, like bailing out banks and schit YOU HAVE TO, I wonder what it will cost us. Yall really can start saying goodbye to govt funded programs, money, etc. All that schit is coming to an end over the next 5 years, definitely next 10. You’ll see (and feel), if you’re one of the ones still relying on the gov’ment.

    To my fellow Soldiers and spouses, it is true “mypay” has posted April 15th’s pay allowance on your accounts. It is only for a portion of your usual entitlement. If you have good leaders they should have briefed you about what is going on and the options that are in place to help you through this hardship. If you bank or have loans through USAA, they are offering a two month deferment on loans but you must call them and ask for it. If the shut down goes longer than expected….you must call them back and request another extentsion. My advice to you is if you bank or have accounts elsewhere, call and explain what is going on and get help before it is too late. I’ve been in the Army for 20 years and this is the 3rd time a shutdown has occured, I survived. Just have faith and be proactive in your personal finaces and obligations. Good Luck
