PostSubject: Govt Shutdown   Tue Oct 01, 2013 9:24 am

As most of you are probably aware, the US government has officially 'shut down' today (October 1st) due to the spending bill (which would fund the government) not being passed. The bill was not passed because one of the attachments to that bill was to fund Obamacare, and the Republicans strongly disagreed with funding Obamacare. So, this shutdown means that around 800,000 federal workers are currently out of work, national parks are shut down, and other things like that.

So, what do you all think about this? I know that some of you may not live in the US, so it will be interesting to hear your perspectives on this as well.

Good bye Republican majority in 2014, and good riddance. Polls had already shown that the US people would blame the Republicans for the shutdown.
