US Government May Close Down

For the last couple of days I have been watching the news on this whole government shut-down. I had heard that the government had done this once before in 1995, although I don't remember for it did not affect me much apparently. This shut-down would be different, my husband is employed by the DOD, and although he has not been notified of a furlough yet, it is a possibility.

The message I am getting is that the dilemma is not over the actual monetary budget, but the issue on whether or not the government will continue to federally support Planned Parenthood. Interestingly enough, the federal government has never funded abortions, but a program called Title 10. Title 10 is screening for cancer, mammograms, and other preventive procedures for women.

It will really be sad if the US stops paying the troops, especially those that are deployed in combat zones. Please pray for America, and that the Leadership makes good decisions.
