Lets hope it doesn't continue past next week.It isn't an issue of technology or available personnel.Those benefits are provided through appropriated mandatory funding, and that funding will run out by late October. At that point, VA will be unable to make any payments if the chuckleheaded morons can't get it together and pass a resolution.

I wouldÂ agree with you if all gov't funding is done with borrowed money and the gov't can't borrow unless Congress authorizes; as such, our General Revenue receipts should be in the $200 billion range and that's more than mandatory obligations (VA comp, SS, Medicare,)
Not exactly. Cash inflow is only about 60-70% of payments that have to be made each month. TreasuryÂ makes about 80,000,000 payments a month and payments don't match up with dates when certain payment must be made e.g., pay interest or principal on treasury bonds. OtherÂ problem is that treasury has no way toÂ isolate certain payments such as interest on debtÂ which must be made so as to guarantee that checksÂ will be sent out. On some days treasury may need $60B. Â Also only $115B of monthly payments is from income tax. The other $100B is SS taxes which are supposed to go the SS trust fund to pay SS benefits.Â http://search.mywebsearch.com/mywebsearch/redirect.jhtml?searchfor=What+Happens+If+the+Debt+Ceiling+Isn%27t+Raised&cb=UX&p2=%5EUX%5Exdm038%5EYY%5Eus&qid=919ad81ca7be40c4b1fb53b713343b29&n=77DE8857&ptb=90411D20-B3FB-4827-B375-2123418D9DAB&si=google_directions-gdn&pg=GGmain&action=pick&pn=1&ss=sub&st=hp&qs=&pr=GG&tpr=jre10&redirect=mPWsrdz9heamc8iHEhldEaQrt%2B6HhXSYGmktizuuMKpKtyGa3dIJ3S2PueQ%2F6DEREdNa7LCX33BsbecNGNiKEHoj3JTE4inpCgCDHynwmhIIkkAEqyUDcGbqRSw7BjyQknQ8%2FT%2FkKQ9FqZjq0%2FU4lg%3D%3D&ord=0&ct=AR&

IMHO it has been THREE YEARS...and these Critters STILL haven't figured out whatever it was that they Passed.
The Critters have chosen to NOT participate in the Stink that they themselves Passed.
There have been Others who have been given a waiver from the Stink.
There have been...what I have been told...some ILLEGAL Actions that have taken place, too.
IMHO...one should not be able to choose WHO gets a waiver from what is being called "THE LAW".
Those Stinky Words...we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it...is about to Stink...BIG TIME!
Because as of TODAY...the Stink goes into Effect...and following our noses will be the Determining Factor.
Either Postpone the Stink...for EVERY ONE...or for NO ONE!
There are people that I know...who can't find work...and the work that they DO FIND...is part-time with NO Benefits.
Employers are so Paranoid of the UNKNOWN of what this Stink will be...that they would rather do NOTHING...or Very Little.
Until the Employers find out what the Stink will...or will not do for them.
After all...there is GOOD Stink...and there is BAD Stink.
I believe in the adage...let them have enough Rope...and they will eventually Hang Themselves.
I think that is what is STARTING Right NOW!
Only time will tell...if they can undo the Knots that they themselves put in their own Ropes.
