Hi everyone! I am curious to hear your thoughts on the U.S. Government Shutdown. In my opinion the whole thing saddens me. So many people out of work and programs threatened because our elected officials are acting like children throwing tantrums until each get their way. In the words of President Obama, "Knock it off"! We are supposed to be moving forward not backwards. We haven't had a shut down in 17 years. Everyday that goes by the shutdown is hurting our economy and peoples livelihood. Get it together!
