    The only people who care about a government shut down are living off the government

     

    Everybody else just yawns and says do it

    • True, 1/3 or more of government agencies could be closed and no one would be inconvenienced or know the difference. A waste of money for what individual states already manage and that's the way it should be. States could do even better if the money earned in that state, stayed in the state for whatever need they decide, education, jobs, healthcare or disaster funds. They could handle things much better than the Feds and still have money left over. Think about it, what expenses do the Feds actually have? There's salary and travel, security, the military, lots and lots of paper for laws, foreign aid, that's about it.

      Write to your Congressman or woman and tell them to shut down and shut up. Thank you.
