CSPAN Reporting that 90% of IRS employees will be furloughed! *Update: Shut down saving US Taxpayers $6.7 million per hour!

Let the shutdown continue! According to graphic below posted by SteveMT, 815,932 DC jobs are being furloughed. If they were all getting paid minimum wage in DC ($8.25/hour) that results in a savings of $6.7 million USD per hour or $53 million per day! What a great way to solve our debt crisis!

Too bad this isn't at all what they wanted... Both sides don't like losing money. The one party system that we have will have the GOV back in no time.
