On his radio program Monday evening, LevinTV host Mark Levin gave a succinct and important explanation of what would actually happen during a government shutdown.
“First of all, that phrase is a lie,” Levin said. “The government doesn’t shut down.”
He explained that 75% of the government has already been funded and will remain operational during a “shutdown.” Law enforcement, entitlement programs, and all “essential” employees of the federal government still work during a “shutdown.” Levin explained that even nonessential employees receive back pay when the government “opens” again.
“I just discussed with you, in three and a half minutes, something you have never heard on a cable TV show, on a network TV show, or a satellite TV show. Something you have never heard on a prime-time news program,” Levin said.
