    With the shut down of the government nearing I am curious who you would consider as Non-essential federal employees. My major hope is that IRS agents would be in that lenghty list.

    It doesn't matter what anyone 'thinks' is non-essential, it matters only what IS actually non-essential.

    There should be no such thing as a nonessential employee.

    So when the government tells those nonessential people to stay home, they should stay home permanently.

    In my mind, most of Congress falls under the 'Non-essential Federal Employee' category. Eric Holder and his staff too!

    The IRS will not audit, it will expect tax returns to be completed on time, refunds will be delayed.

    Unaffected: armed services, police and fire, utilities, air traffic management and prisons. Seems reasonable.

    Seems somewhat logical to me that non-essential should be non-paid.

    Considering how irrelevant Congress has been making themselves, I wouldnt be surprised if they thought they could stay home.
