My guesses are (a) that there will be "shutdown" and (b) that few aside from "non-essential" Federal employees will notice, despite yells and screams from the "legitimate media."
Apparently, Social Security and other routine benefit payments will continue normally although new benefit applications will be delayed. Aircraft will continue to fly, trains and buses will continue to do what they usually do and the Congress will continue to do what it does best, i.e., very little.

You are correct. And that’s why we need to start talking about the debt ceiling. Unless the debt ceiling is raised, the government will not be able to increase borrowing. That means that roughly half of spending would get to stop. Butt cold. And the best part is that dear leader would have to decide who gets paid and who does not. Will he fund interest payments or social security, the military or EBT cards?
The debt ceiling will be reached in late October, early November.
Ironically, the federal employee unions might turn out to be Obamacare's worst enemies.
