Coast Guard families told they can have garage sales to cope with government shutdown

‘Bankruptcy is a last option,’ the service said in a tip sheet published on a service website.

Employees of the U.S. Coast Guard who are facing a long U.S. government shutdown just received a suggestion: To get by without pay, consider holding a garage sale, babysitting, dog-walking or serving as a “mystery shopper.”

The suggestions were part of a five-page tip sheet published by the Coast Guard Support Program, an employee-assistance arm of the service often known as CG SUPRT. It is designated to offer Coast Guard members help with mental-health issues or other concerns about their lives, including financial wellness.

“Bankruptcy is a last option,” the document said.

The Coast Guard receives funding from the Department of Homeland Security, and is subjected to the shuttering of parts of the government along with DHS’s other agencies. That stands in contrast to other military services, which are part of the Defense Department and have funding.

The tip sheet, titled “Managing your finances during a furlough,” applies to the Coast Guard’s 8,500-person civilian work force. About 6,400 of them are on indefinite furlough, while 2,100 are working without pay after being identified as essential workers, said Lt. Cmdr. Scott McBride, a service spokesman. They were last paid for the two-week period ending Dec. 22.

While the media was asking the white hair liar (Pence) some really stupid questions

not one of them asked.................

Do you think the six people working at the Bedminster Golf Course illegally and that they came forward, that is owned by your president (the narcissistic silver spoon jerk fraudster) should he be charged with hiring illegal aliens, do you see a double standard here, he is after all the owner?

Not one question to hold his boss accountable, for knowingly and willingly to breaking the law. While he sits in some office telling the Speaker of the House and the Minority leader ................, saying to both of them...............Good-bye and getting up and walking away in temper tantrum..................after they said NO.

He has never had anyone tell him NO, and now he goes ballistic because adults are telling him NO..................

House Democrats to test Republicans on Trump's wall demand

POLITICS JANUARY 9, 2019 / 1:05 AM / UPDATED AN HOUR AGO

Richard Cowan

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - As a partial U.S. government shutdown entered its 19th day, Democrats on Wednesday were set to test Republicans’ resolve in backing President Donald Trump’s drive to build a wall on the border with Mexico, which has sparked an impasse over agency funding.

House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats, who took control of the chamber last week, plan to advance a bill to immediately reopen the Treasury Department, the Securities and Exchange Commission and several other agencies that have been in partial shutdown mode since Dec. 22.

Democrats are eager to force Republicans to choose between funding the Treasury’s Internal Revenue Service - at a time when it should be gearing up to issue tax refunds to millions of Americans - and voting to keep it partially shuttered.

In a countermove, the Trump administration said on Tuesday that even without a new shot of funding, the IRS would somehow make sure those refund checks get sent.

PM will have to table alternative to her deal within three days of losing vote

Follow all the latest Brexit news with our live blog

Theresa May will be obliged to present MPs with a new Brexit plan within three days if her current proposal is voted down next week, after a procedural amendment to the plan’s progress through the Commons was passed amid chaotic scenes

The amendment to the business motion for the plan, drawn up by the Conservative former attorney general Dominic Grieve, gives May the deadline to put forward new plans if she loses the vote, as many expect, next Tuesday.

The amendment was passed by 308 votes to 297 following stormy scenes in which a series of Conservative MPs castigated the Speaker, John Bercow, for allowing the amendment.

Amid a series of furious points of order lasting more than an hour, a series of Conservatives argued that Commons precedent dictated that business motions could only be changed by ministers
