SEAN HANNITY (HOST):  The post office still delievers mail. Food stamps, well that's not impacted. The executive branch, they still operate. The judiciary branch, they function. Congress, they pretty much going to on like nothing happened. The only people that are directly impacted are non-essential government employees and guess what they get? They get a furlough, which means they end up getting a paid vacation because historically Congress has always retroactively paid their salaries and they got all the free time off.
