Has the government shutdown impacted you?

Tuesday's government shutdown closed or partially closed various federally funded agencies, including the Small Business Administration, National Parks, and museums and furloughed as many as 800,000 federal employees. Additionally, the Department of Veterans Affairs will run out of money for pension checks if the shutdown continues into late October, according to USA Today.

The Congressional stalemate began after the Republican controlled House of Representatives and Democrat controlled Senate could not agree on a spending bill by Monday's midnight deadline, essentially shutting down government spending until an agreement is reached.

Some federal agencies will stay open, such as the U.S. Postal Service, Social Security Administration, and Medicare. The government will also continue to provide immigration and border security, emergency and disaster assistance, and federal law enforcement, CBS Local reports.

We want to hear from you. Are you impacted by the government shutdown? Let us know in the comments section.

  1. Remove the entire congress and rewrite the constitution if you really want to break the status-quo of how Washington doing their business. And corporation is NOT people, supreme court! Or they just pay tax like people!

  2. The government is effectively bankrupt, so why not declare it and start over with zero debt?

    We now live in a country where most of the government debt is created by borrowing from itself (the fed). Where does the fed get the money? They print it!

    The country needed a reset in 2008 and it was not allowed to happen. We have bubbles now in almost everything and you can thank those fools in Washington DC.

    This problem started a long time ago and both parties are to blame.
