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.

Where, you ask, do you find that financial cushion? Senior Correspondent Mike Causey tells you about how some members of Congress did it in the 1990s.
