(Fox News) The so-called government shutdown which started last week affects just 17 percent of the entire federal government, according to a recent spending calculation.
The numbers are based on information requested from the Senate Budget Committee, as well as data from the Obama administration and the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office. A Senate Republican source verified the calculation to FoxNews.com, after it was first reported by The Washington Examiner.
The calculation that 83 percent of the government is still running shows how some parts of the government — unless the country loses its ability to borrow — simply cannot be shut down, even if Congress is unable to agree on a spending bill as happened last week.

Speculating about Hillary Clinton’s White House hopes, Roberts said the former first lady will have an easier go of things because she’s white, suggesting critics of President Obama are motivated by racism. “Some of this Tea Party anger is racist,” she proffered on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” without offering a shred of evidence. “And having a nonblack person on the ticket will defuse it to some degree.”
If you are uncomfortable with the current Washington DC trend toward socialism, you are by default, racist.
(IBD) “A growing number of white independents who put Obama over the top, believing he was the centrist he advertised, now dislike his policies. Nobody can call them racist. They don’t care for the socialist white half of the president any more than his socialist black half.”
