FEDERAL GOV. SHUTDOWN/DEBT CEILING VOTE MAY MEAN NO DISABILITY CHECKS, SOCIAL SECURITY, WIDOW'S BENEFITS, MEDICARE PRESCRIPTION PROGRAM IN NOVEMBER

Mediscare Redux: Is McConnell holding debt ceiling hike hostage to Ryan Medicare plan? JUNE 2011
what next?
Some of the biggest single payments that come due in a given month are Social Security benefits. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew has already raised the specter of those not being paid on time if Congress doesn't raise the debt ceiling.
But there's also a chance that some federal benefits could be reduced if Congress chooses to cut spending abruptly in place of raising the debt ceiling. Again that's not considered a likely scenario, in part because the spending cuts needed would have be very deep just to allow Treasury to keep paying the bills that are coming due. -CNN
If the government runs low on cash, it will have to withhold a range of payments. Retirees might not get their Social Security checks, especially worrisome for the millions of Americans who depend almost entirely on the social insurance program for income. The same goes for Medicare and Medicaid recipients. - CBS

WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY ARE DISABLED AND HAVE BEEN SO ALL OF THEIR LIVES?
If you voted for any of these people, shame on you.
