In confusion over the CR and Government Shutdown, Tom slips in a huge grant

Taking advantage of the confusion and short time frame over the Continuing Resolution (CR) and threats to shut down the Government, Tom has had his operatives slip in a grant (to Tom) of $100 Billion.  Tom is fairly confident that nobody really reads these CRs until way after the fact and way after the money has been deposited in Tom’s account.

This grant will allow Tom to realize his dream of topping Bill Gates as the richest man.

So how come, when the government runs out of money, Congress is always the LAST ones still being paid? (And remember, the prefix “pro” is the opposite of “con”. So Congress is the opposite of ….. 😉

      Evidently, you believed that in the event of a Government shut downthat they sent the non-essential employees home. It could be the opposite. Where is that institution that is paying interest?
