Government shutdowns could be what's in store

info@islandpacket.comOctober 2, 2013 

Get used to the government shutdown. Adding the Obamacare entitlement to Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, food stamps and unemployment insurance entitlements eventually won't leave any money for the services we are losing in this shutdown.

The Congressional Budget Office says the cost of Obamacare has gone from $900 billion to $1.8 trillion since the law was passed. What do you think it will cost in another three years when we finally know what's in the law and President Barack Obama finishes passing out exemptions?

How much of your spending will be shut down due to the cost of your health care?
