Oh Tuesday mornings seem to be the hardest for me— was falling asleep all over the place as I was getting to work. But it’s almost hump day! I hope you are all having a pleasant morning with freshly brewed coffee. I am having my own cup right now.
The government has ‘shut down’ and now we are just left wondering what is happening to our country. I didn’t think it would really happen, that perhaps they would be able to negotiate their way out of a shut down but seriously, this is just quite ridiculous. To the republicans who oppose the healthcare so much that they are willing to shut down the government, putting hundreds of thousands of federal employees jobs on hold, putting government services on hold that affects all of us, inducing our own financial crisis… it’s just unacceptable. If you can’t get rid of a bill.. aka obamacare, then that means the nation wants it and needs it. Don’t throw a tantrum and put your CONSTITUENTS in jeopardy.
From Foreign policy: “As the deadline neared, markets took a hit in anticipation of Congress’s failure but steadied Tuesday morning. Members of Congress are expected to meet throughout the week to resolve the impasse. If the deadlock persists, though, it could threaten Congress’s ability to raise the federal debt limit by Oct. 17, causing the United States to default on its debts.”
And for those of you who just want to know how this will affect your life: Here you go
