Posted on 04/08/2011 7:37:06 AM PDT by topher
One Republican on the House floor last night warned: There she blows! It was a vain attempt to protect fellow Congress Critters from the Hot Air about to spew forth from Nancy Pelosi.
Unfortunately, it was too late. Several Congress Critters had to seek First Aid as a result of poisonous, hot air coming from Nancy Pelosi.
In the Senate, Harry Reid was telling fellow Senators he would work with Las Vegas oddsmakers about placing bets concerning the budget impasse. He was also bragging about his Escort Service was establishing in Las Vegas.
And in the White House, there was grave concern that the President would have to place gold 4 times a week instead of all 7 days.
Elsewhere, military families expressed genuine concern that two weeks after the shutdown they would stop receiving paychecks.
They do not understand why they miss paychecks after the US Air Force had to wait hand and foot on Nancy Pelosi when she was Speaker of the House.
However, Air Force officials confirm that they always had specialized medical personnel on flights that carry Nancy Pelosi and her staff.
The US Air Force had a team to study and treat Nancy Pelosi Hot Air Syndrome
One problem with releasing the report was giving the Syndrome a proper title. The Nancy Pelosi title could not be used.
Taxpayers that have not complained about government waste.
To them is isn’t waste it’s a free meal ticket and a free ride and they buy the dems BS about granny is going to die if the dems don’t get to blow all the taxpayers money.
If spending isn’t cut now the bitter pill gets bigger.
How the federal government shutdown would affect Chicago
By: Paul Merrion and Lorene Yue April 08, 2011
(Crain’s) Chicago’s largest employer is likely to be taking at least Monday off, but few will likely notice the no-show.
A shutdown of the federal government appears imminent as chances dim for a last-minute extension of funding that by law expires at midnight Friday.
With Republicans and Democrats still far apart on how much to cut, some 800,000 federal workers nationwide will be furloughed, including many of the nearly 50,000 federal workers in the Chicago region, but a short-term shutdown will be barely noticeable to the public and most businesses.
Mail will still be delivered, as the Post Office depends on postage, not appropriations. Social Security checks will still go out, too. Using funds on hand, Argonne National Laboratory and Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory will remain open, worried far more about long-term budget cuts than a short-term shutdown.
Planes will still stream in and out of Chicago’s airports, as air traffic controllers are considered essential personnel who must remain on the job. Customs will clear passengers and cargo as usual, although most support staff will stay home.
The public will not see that, a Customs Bureau spokesman said.
While the closing of Smithsonian museums and attractions such as the Lincoln Memorial at the height of tourist season will produce howls in Washington, D.C., what’s affected in Chicago will be far less visible, annoying only those with non-critical needs for government services.
