Mail Will Get Delivered, Post Offices will remain open but Passports Will Not Get Processed

As Democrats and Republicans bicker over $30 billion, thousands of government employees fret over whether they can go to work on Monday. After the current continuing budget resolution expires at 12:01 a.m. Friday, all “nonessential” government employees will be sent home until Congress passes and the president signs a budget for the remainder of fiscal year 2011.

Postal Service: Working The government shutdown won’t affect mail delivery or mail processing, as the Postal Service is self-funded. “We don’t get any taxpayer money. So we are not part of appropriations process. We will carry on and do what we always do: Deliver the mail,” said a Postal Service spokesperson.

  12. Get off the government crap, mental patients. We have much more to fear from the out of control large corporations that are taking all the wealth and giving back nothing.
