    70 direct effects of the government shutdown

    70 direct effects of the partial government shutdown (and counting)


    Trump spewing disinformation in McAllen, Texas.

    1/10/19 - Here is a list from CNN reporting and other news outlets of the ways, large and small, that the partial government shutdown is affecting Americans nationwide.
    To remain in compliance with Fair Use, the 70 item list is @ the link above.

    The number of Americans directly affected by the shutdown will increase exponentially with each passing week of White House intransigence.

    That's some list. I don't care if there is one or 70 effects. A government shutdown is never a good idea. Never.

    40) More than 60 members of Congress are rejecting their pay during the shutdown, with some choosing to donate their paychecks.

    That was interesting. That was actually a good effect. Good for them.
