Seriously, mine is due on the 3rd and I'm wondering. And what other "pain" are we going to feel that our public servants, who will feel NO pain at all, are going to inflict on us in a political battle that has nothing to do with the little guy who doesn't WANT this sequester? Will we get our unemployment checks? Will we get Medicaid if we have it? Will the mail be delivered? Will fire departments still be functional? Will those with childcare subsidies not get them? Will our men and women who serve get paid? I have never been more ashamed of our country's public servants (cough...they serve themselves only for, certainly, THEY won't feel the pain). Back to the initial question, what does this mean to us? Does anyone really understand the issue and know what it will mean? Because you KNOW they won't strike a deal. God forbid they make the lives of hard working Americans stable and sane.
