More smoke and mirrors and public relations scheming over the shutdown from the Obama Administration. A reader who works for the federal government sent this photo below of a sign that is apparently posted at all Social Security Administration offices. Since SSA is considered essential, it is fully staffed and open as usual, and yet, it is not performing many of its duties “Due to Congressional inaction to prevent a Government shutdown.” (Translation: “Due to the Evil Republicans!”)
Huh? It doesn’t make sense that a fully staffed, fully funded agency would not be able to function during the shutdown . . . unless the decision was made by a crafty, dishonest President who wants people to hate the Republicans in Congress because of the shutdown and wants to make the shutdown seem more drastic than it actually is or should be (we’ve seen it at the monuments and with the military vets, but not with the prized illegal aliens). And that’s exactly what’s going on here, as with all the other selective furloughs and closings associated with the shutdown.
The reader writes:
Here is a copy of the sign at all the social security offices. They are considered essential, so no one has been furloughed nor have their hours been reduced.
Yet, for some reason they have reduced their services despite being fully staffed.
So no social security cards…..
Also FPS [Federal Protective Service, which polices federal buildings and is part of Homeland Security] has been ordered to step up patrols of SSA offices because a perceived threat that the reduction in services may bring. Nice….
You can really have fun and go to an office and ask them why they are doing this and watch them squirm…
Yup, nice PR machinations by the Obama Administration corruptocrats.
Sadly, I don’t think anyone is squirming. Just smirking that they have done this, screwing the little people and giving the other side (the Republicans) the credit for it. Or trying to.
