The Government is closed. My question is was it really even open?
I don't know many government agencies that work well. Who cares about sending folks home that don't care anyways?
So 800,000 are home today. Maybe they can watch the Price is Right. Better yet, they can go to a government agency that is still open and experience what we do every day.
If it were private enterprise running those agencies they could probably do the same with 8000 people and get better results. The last time there was a shutdown the stock market went up not down. Efficiency is a wonderful thing.
So enjoy the show. So you can't go to the Statue of Liberty today. Big deal. It was closed for many years for renovations.
The Washington Monument won't open today. It was closed for 2 years after that earthquake.
It won't affect a single thing you do today or tomorrow or next week.
Let them all go home and let's just start again.
