In a nutshell what will happen is:
The commissaries will be closed!
Government Employees will only receive 1/2 of their paycheck (April 1-8)
Military is still expected to report for duty and all those on TDYs NOT DEPLOYMENTS will be sent home.
All of this happens in the event a budget is not passed or Obama decides to veto the stopgap budget that will allow government employees an additional week of pay and the military to be paid through the end of the fiscal year. He has said he would veto this. That is another argument all together and I REALLY hope he does not make that mistake. You can read a bit about the stopgap here.
Below are some links that will be helpful in the event you will need aid until normal pay resumes.

I hope everyone has a good day and I pray that our government can reach a decision before it is too late.
