Since it seems pretty likely that we will be a government shutdown 2011 might as well start a thread about it. According to this article http://www.washingtonpost.com/polit.../04/06/AFPriirC_story.html?wprss=rss_homepage it seems pretty clear the Tea Partiers do not want to compromise at all. They not only want 33-50bill in cuts but they want to choose were they come from. I was listening to the new last night and instead of logical choices in cuts they wanted to go after education, Medicare and things that help the core. refused to say cut money out of oil subsidy and tighten the ropes on agriculture subsidy. looks like to me the Tea partiers are showing their true colors when that is what they really want. Either way figure this thread is going to pop up. As for students hope you have filed your FASFA by now and those who are trying to get Refunds hope you taxes are down. As for those who have to pay some taxes a shut down could help you because it will take them longer to process the payment so you hold on to your interested longer. remember it has to be post marked by the 18th no matter what.
