Very little if not at all. I make it a point to not rely on the government for anything. I plan on loosing all of my social security when I retire and only use Government services when I don't have a choice. Even then I try my hardest to only use local and constitutional services in my area (like the post office, or police). I would rather die than work for the government or rely on welfare. I consider myself lucky compared to those that already rely on social security while they where paying for it back when the government was much more stable.

I think it would be a disaster. I do not know how I would survive. Not paying people in the military would be a crime. What are people supposed to do. Does the government care at all about people?

Thank goodness they have avoided a shut down so far.
They need to put the people first and not their personal agendas.

...or Medicare?  How are women supposed to get routine health exams when they are uninsured and Planned Parenthood is their only choice for a pap smear or mammogram?

Its time for the government to start looking out for common citizens instead of interest groups, IMO. 

A government shutdown will effect more people than people think.
