    "On Sept. 25, a few days before the partial government suspension, the VA issued "contingency guidance" about a potential shutdown that said it had enough leftover money from the 2013 budget to keep the VA running for three weeks. The guidance said "the department's current projection was that 95 percent of VA employees would be either fully funded or required to perform excepted functions during a shutdown event."

    That had a lot of veterans and their families breathing a sigh of relief.

    But one day before the shutdown, President Obama entered the White House briefing room and used veterans as an example of Americans who will suffer. "I also want to be very clear about what would change," Obama said. "Vital services that seniors and veterans, women and children, businesses and our economy depend on would be hamstrung. ... Veterans who've sacrificed for their country will find their support centers unstaffed."

    He even suggested that veterans with post-traumatic stress would have trouble seeing their counselors.

    By Oct. 2, Veterans Affairs also began issuing much more dire warnings than it had days earlier."

    I can say my trip to the VA today was complete, no one was missing, no staff were off, and no one said they planned
    to miss a minute of service. They called any cries of the VA closing misguided since they are funded seperate from
    the US Budget and do not require a continuing resolution to receive funding - bunch of obama freekin LIES.
    It was like the Obama lie that the military service academies football games were going to be canceled. Just a lie. Ends up no appropriations from Congress are used during these games. In fact the games pay for themselves. The games are back on, it was just another Obama lie to piss off Americans and blame the Republicans.

    And where Obama couldn't lie he went out of his way to make the government shut down an inconvenience to as many Americans as possible like closing access to monuments and parks.

    I'm expecting that the DoD will be announcing over the weekend that an entire squadron of F-15 have fallen out of the sky because of the government shut down because they couldn't put any KC-135's in the air to refuel the F-15's. Of course it will just be another Obama lie.

    The Obama administration has a 4 year and 8 month track history of lies. Benghazi tops them all. Obama lied in 2008 to get elected and lied big time in 2012 to be given a second chance.
    It's enough to drive Americans postal.

    This isn't the first time Obama has gone out of his way to screw the American people, look at the sequester...

    wasn't there documented proof that people were told to make the public "feel it"?

    Yep. Like I said, Clinton didn't resort to this kind of dishonesty.

    No. There wasn't. There were bloggers and conspiracy nuts repeating something often enough that you forgot the source was ever dubious.

    This isn't documented proof, it's literally "some guy said so."

    You might notice there isn't a single quote from the email. (it's clever, they actually quote the guy talking about the email) My guess is that the email he received actually said "You do not have the legal authority to move money around like you propose, and neither do we."

    Congress appropriates money in specific ways. Some random Federal worker doesn't have the discretion to just move money around like that. An example from my industry: when the air traffic control furlough was looming, a friend of mine at the FAA mentioned that they had millions of dollars in unallocated research funds sitting in an account that they were unable to use to reduce the impact on air traffic control. Because Congress appropriated that money for research, not air traffic operations.

    Congress pays the bills. The executive branch doesn't get to just unilaterally override them.
