Government Shutdown Thursday Day 10

Day 10 Government Shutdown

October 10, 2013

By Dr. Tyra OldhamLANDsds Sustainable Voice News

Government shutdown persist with moderate changes in the live of some but overall there is very little movement. This is day 10 and counting. The month of October has been counted and marked by the U.S. government shutdown. The collective news when digested could leave one spinning as to the comments and flurries of gibes thrown among the dueling parties.

Yesterday, Wednesday President Obama met with the Democratic party members to talk debt ceiling and managing the storm.

The news on the “5 things to know about government shutdown Thursday” as reported are glimmers of hope that reveal some sense of connectivity to the people the two parties are charged to support.

As Senators seek their gyms and remark their no towel service in an atmosphere of disarray.  The disconnect continues but one connection was made when the “Pentagon reached an agreement with the non-profit Fisher House Foundation to restore $100,000 death benefits to military families that are stalled in the shutdown.” This came after loud outcries to support the fallen who have served which was on hold. The disgrace of the honorable coming home to leaving their families without death benefits was one a public relations nightmare and a national disgrace,”reports USA Today.

In response, “Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel flew to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to meet with families as the remains of their loved ones, killed Sunday in a roadside blast in Afghanistan, returned to the United States. Hagel said the foundation will be reimbursed when the shutdown ends.”

Government workers furloughed continues with a fewer at home

The furlough estimated “800,000 federal workers were deemed “non-essential” and furloughed. The Pentagon earlier this week recalled almost all of its 350,000 civilian workers. Thousands of other workers in the Social Security Administration are also back at work, and other federal agencies have temporarily recalled employees.”

Back pay for lost days is not known.  The back pay requires a bill  and is reported “has so far only passed the House,” states USA Today.

The Pay It Forward of Citizens Going Beyond the Call of Duty

Chris Cox determined a problem amid the government shutdown. “Cox took a lawnmower to the National Mall this week and began cutting grass in areas between the Lincoln and World War II memorials.” The work of citizens to take up the slack where the government has left a hole.
