The Lid: Whenever you hear the media bray about how terrible it is to have a government shutdown, understand that they are always, always lying to you about what a government shutdown even means. This time it means very little as less than 10% of the government will cease operating.
This week, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) slammed the media and warned his constituents not to be all caught up in the lies from the fake news media on all this “government shutdown” business.
Massie jumped to his Twitter account to warn America not to get fooled.
“If Congress doesn’t pass an Omnibus by Dec. 21st, we won’t have a government #shutdown,” Massie noted. “It’d be hard to even characterize it as a government slowdown! I made this graphic to show what shuts down (less than 10%) and what keeps going (over 90%!). The media isn’t telling you this!” MORE
