White House rolls out government shutdown propaganda with new post

October 1st is day one of the government shutdown resulting from a stalled budget debate over Obamacare. House GOP members put forth a bill which would fund the government with the exclusion of Obamacare.

Post September 30, Megal Slack, Deputy Director of Digital Content for the Office of Digital Strategy, posted an article on WhiteHouse.gov titled: Here’s How a Government Shutdown Hurts the American People

“If the United States government shuts down tonight and our economy takes a hit, it will be because House Republicans let it happen. Instead of allowing a simple yes or no vote on a bill that funds the government for a few more weeks, the government that these Republicans were elected to serve will close down.”

House Republicans were demanding that the Senate negotiate their demand for a one-year delay in making millions of people buy health insurance under President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care law. Minutes before midnight, the White House ordered a shutdown.

The Democratic Senate on Monday twice rejected GOP demands to delay key portions of what has become to known as Obamacare as a condition for keeping the government open.

“And as a result, starting tomorrow, Americans across the country won’t be allowed to show up for work,” Slack writes. “Paychecks could be delayed, meaning some folks will have to cut back on groceries or maybe not even pay a few bills. Businesses will have fewer customers. Veterans won’t get services they rely on — and it will put benefits for seniors at risk.”

An estimated 800,000 federal workers faced furloughs though many were told work a half day Tuesday. Critical functions like air traffic control and military operations will continue. Social Security benefits will be paid. National parks and most federal offices will close.

Slack concludes: “Take a look at how this shutdown will affect millions of Americans, and then make sure you share it so others know too.”

    The government takeover of this country is now nearly complete with Obamacare going into effect… Obama is a prime example of “false compassion.” The SOB-in-Chief is no doubt secretly gloating about the government shutdown so he can blame it on the Republicans. With Obamacare, he is another step closer to his goal of wrecking the economy and destroying America for the globalists…
