The man that need a social security card to start his new job. (sorry office closed)
The woman that is laid off from Lockheed Martin because of the government shutdown.
The store that she was going to buy her new shoes for work didn't get their money. She not working
The electric Company didn't get their money on time.
And these are just two people and probably these things and more are happening to neighbors, friends and relative around you.
We need growth in industry and companies, not downsizing and closer. The government has a ripple effect on our lives. So you may not get that raise in pay because of this shutdown, why because of ripple economics.
I am hoping that people that have had this governments shut down impacting their lives in a negative way will email their representatives in Washington and tell them this better not happen again and don't forget to let them know at the polls next voting season. Maybe someone will run that is great with budgeting and will improve the system. We can only hope. Is Robin Williams still planning to run for office? Sometimes crazy can balance things out.
