Government Shutdown 2011

President Obama hasn't had a budget passed since 2009. If you read my last post you would have learned that keeping and staying on a balanced budget is a common sense principle of living within your means, not overspending, and getting out of debt. Something our lawmakers seem to think is not important. Now the country is faced with a pending government shutdown if an agreement cannot be made by midnight tonight.

What does this mean? Well, I read an article on examiner.com saying that 800,000 federal non-essential federal employees won't get paid. My first thought was non-essential employees? If they are non-essential, why do we even have them in the first place?

That sounds like a good spot to start making cuts in the budget and the scope and size of our government.
