President Obama: Just Vote and End This Shutdown 10/03/2013 16:59:19
    Today in Rockville, MD, President Obama visited M. Luis Construction Company to talk about the impact of the government shutdown on the economy and why Congress needs to "just vote." The President's Small Business Jobs Act and other SBA programs have helped local businesses like M. Luis Construction grow in recent years, but the government shutdown has disrupted these programs. The President's remarks highlighted the effects of the shutdown on the American people, effects that could be avoided just by putting a resolution to fund the government and avoid a default to an up-or-down vote. Watch the entire speech here:

What's Affected by a Government Shutdown? 10/01/2013 12:42:48
    

Congress has two jobs to do: pass a budget and pay its bills. Yesterday, Congress failed to fulfill its responsibility to pass a budget and as a result, much of the Federal government will shut down. Below, find an overview of some of the government services and operations that will be impacted until Congress passes a budget to fund them again. For detailed information about US government operations, you can learn more at whitehouse.gov/omb/contingency-plans . Vital services that ensure seniors and young children have access to healthy food and meals may not have sufficient Federal funds to serve all beneficiaries in an extended lapse. Call centers, hotlines and regional offices that help veterans understand their benefits will close to the public. And, veterans’ compensation, pension, education and other benefits could be cut off in the case of an extended shutdown. Every one of America’s national parks and monuments, from Yosemite to the Smithsonian to the Statue of Liberty, will be immediately closed. New applications for small business loans and loan guarantees will be immediately halted. Research into life-threatening diseases and other areas will stop and new patients won’t be accepted into clinical trials at the National Institutes of Health. Work to protect consumers, ranging from child product safety to financial security to the safety of hazardous waste facilities, will cease. The EPA will halt non-essential inspections of chemical facil...

Here's How a Government Shutdown Hurts the American People 09/30/2013 20:46:06
    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. And as a result, starting tomorrow, Americans across the country won’t be allowed to show up for work. 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. Take a look at how this shutdown will affect millions of Americans, and then make sure you share it so others know too. read more

President Obama: Congress Needs to Keep Our Government Open 09/30/2013 18:46:17
    

President Barack Obama delivers remarks on the budget negotiations, in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House, Sept. 30, 2013. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza) If Congress does not fulfill its responsibility to pass a budget today, much of the United States government will be forced to shut down tomorrow. This afternoon, President Obama delivered remarks from the White House Press Briefing Room about what that shutdown would mean for the country. While some services will continue -- social security checks, postal service, operations related to national security or public safety –- a number of changes would go into effect immediately. Office buildings would close. Paychecks would be delayed. Vital services that seniors and veterans, women and children, businesses and our economy depend on would be hamstrung. Business owners would see delays in raising capital, seeking infrastructure permits, or rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy. Veterans who’ve sacrificed for their country will find their support centers unstaffed. Tourists will find every one of America’s national parks and monuments, from Yosemite to the Smithsonian to the Statue of Liberty, immediately closed. And of course, the communities and small businesses that rely on these national treasures for their livelihoods will be out of customers and out of luck. A shutdown would also disrupt the economy, President Obama said. &ldq...
