How Has the Government Shutdown Affected You?
Congress has two jobs to do: pass a budget and pay its bills. But earlier this week, Congress failed to pass legislation to fund the government, and now many vital services are shut down. So, we want to hear: How has the government shutdown affected you?

In the event that someone may answer the question and no one responds or prints it on the website, the White House has that covered too--it's Congress' fault.

Now I can't confirm that this is the Lincoln Bedroom or that this is actually Obama, but I offer this as a possible facsimile.
I would prefer government being shut down 360 days a year and just meeting for 4 or 5 days a year.

The office of the President of the United States of America has been reduced to a teenage blogger temper tantrum stunt forum.
The sad thing is its worst affects may not ahve caught up to you.
This could have shaved a good 1% of the USA growth forcast.
