RE :” Government shutdown won't shut Obamacare: Report
Obamacare would keep running even in a government shutdown, a new congressional report suggests.
...The new health care law draws funding from sources that are not subject to the congressional budget process, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service. Also, the revenue collected under Obamacare is considered to be part of a category that ensures the “safety of human life or the protection of property,” which makes it immune to government shutdowns, the report said.”
Yep, shutdown government services to take a stand on Obama-care spending with Obama-care spending unaffected by shutdown because its exempt from it.
Reminds me of 1996 after three weeks of shutdowns the GSAs got back salaries for all three weeks paying some overtime.(caught me by surprise at time)
Imagine how that would play in media and public opinion...

What sources? Begging? Obamacare won't have any cash flowing in for a long time.
