Federal News Radio is closely following the prospect of a federal shutdown and how it would affect federal workers.
A possible government shutdown could affect around 800,000 federal employees, a senior Obama administration official said today.
Republicans have been saying they get three bites at the apple at their attempt to cut spending, said Russell Berman, congressional reporter for The Hill.
Do you know what furlough-bait looks like? Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says if you have a mirror handy it easy to find out.
If there is a government shutdown will you be working or furloughed without pay? What happens to Social Security, and will your tax refund be processed in a timely manner. Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says most feds, and most taxpayers, remain in the dark.

Any budget deal in Congress has to be reached a lot sooner than you might think. The House and Senate need more than just enough time to pass it.

Federal Times editor Steve Watkins and senior writer Steve Losey, financial planner Arthur Stein, and president of the Senior Executives Association Carol Bonosaro join us to answer your questions.
If the government is shut down next week, Congress and the White House will remain open for business and in a pay status so they can work out a deal to reopen the government that was closed because they couldn't work out a deal. Senior Correspondent Mike Causey explains the logic behind the furlough follies.
