Now is the time to put your pennies aside.
This fall, no matter what happens with mid term elections, congress has to pass a budget. President Trump has said, more than once, he isn’t giving in to a budget with pork in it. He will shut the government down. I believe him.
So, you’re going to need rent money, grocery money, and more and you won’t have an income if you’re a government employee. You’ll be paid retroactively once the budget is passed, but until then, you need to survive and eat. So, my friends, save those pennies!
And if that doesn’t happen, then you’ll have a lovely little nest egg set aside for when the shit does hit the fan.
