Mario Piperni on a Government Shutdown

The Wingnut Series – Obamacare

SEPTEMBER 28, 2013 BY  

Wingnut-Series_Obamacare   :

Steve King actually spoke the words illustrated above.

“If there is a price to be paid for this, we will recover from a government shutdown, whether it’s a day, a week or two weeks … something will get resolved, we’ll recover from that as a country,” said Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa). “It’s a temporary inconvenience for a lot of people. But if Obamacare is ever implemented, we will never recover from that as a nation. We can never be a free people again.

Providing affordable health care for millions of their fellow Americans – thereby preventing the needless death of thousands each year – is, in the minds of these heartless delusional bastards, a loss of freedom. Freedoms which, you are told, can never be recovered.


As for those temporary inconveniences, here’s what a government shutdown entails:

  • 368 National Park Service sites closed
  • 700,000 federal employees sent home
  • passport offices shut down and visas will not be processed
  • members of the military will remain on duty but will not receive a salary
  • veteran’s checks will, at best, be delayed
  • federal loans for small business and home purchases won’t be happening
  • …and a whole lot more

There is one small effect of a government shutdown that might get the crazies to reconsider their act of madness extortion…because if anything can get wingers’ heads to explode in unison, it’s the knowledge that a shutdown would mean that…

  • gun permits will not be issued.

What?!!? No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. I think that every time the Republicans want to vote on healthcare, we should vote on gun control instead…

  2. A shutdown will cost BILLIONS, yet these “fiscally conservative” so called “representative” are just going to continue to play games with OUR lives…..they will still get their nice fat paychecks and benefits to boot….

  3. “…heartless, delusional bastards…”
    Yeah. That pretty much covers it.
