    Shut down is showing the % of essential gov't workers

    WOW. The thing that I like about this shut down is each dept has had to report the % of essential workers. I couldn't believe it at first EPA out of all of their employees, only 3.6% of them are essential. Depending on the dept or program the number of federal employees that are not necessary, a drain on the federal budget, from 30% to 96.4% of federal employees are not necessary. This tells you what a waste the federal gov't is.
    Out of the 800,000 federal employees that are shut out, ready, the number of un necessary employees is between 240,000 and 500,000. This is a lot of employees that we have on the rolls that are completely un necessary. Time for the tax payer to look at this wasteful gov't.
    Next, I guess you heard that the 800,000 unemployed will not get paid. HUH? What they mean is their check will be delayed. They will receive back pay once they go back to work.
