I’ll be perfectly honest and state that I really don’t understand the possible repercussions of a Gov’t shutdown. The concept sounds scary but there are conflicting reports over just how bad a Gov’t shutdown really is. I myself find it hard to believe politicians who are stating that this would be disastrous for our nation as they always tend to exaggerate things for their own political purposes. I also find it hard to believe that an entity such as the US Gov’t can actually be shutdown without the entire nation being in some kind of “end of the world” situation.
So what do you think? Is this possible Gov’t shutdown being talked about in the media today really as bad as it sounds or being described or is this simply a lot of “typical” politician exaggeration and the repercussions will be minimal but possibly good for the country? What say you?
