Government Shutdown..Time is ticking!

Brandon checking back in. Washington is three days away from the deadline on making a decison about the federal spending plan and neither party can come to terms. As if our country is not in enough trouble right now. I am at a loss of words right now….Ok so obviously we need to cut back on our budget the country is in a recession. Yes we are still in a recession we might be coming out of it but were not there yet. I feel this is so obvious and both parties need understand everyone cant always be happy and get there way and make a sacrifice and come to terms. At midnight on Friday if we have no decision we are going to be forced into a Government Shutdown! This will hurt our country very badly and the political parties need to do everything they can and not stop at doing so untill an agreement is made.Not only is our government going to shutdown this will effect many other non government jobs and it will cost this country lots of money. We are finally starting to get jobs back, and this could force companies to head in the other direction and back to where we all just fought our butts off to get out of.

Okay so what is the issue? Well for starters some bright politician (im not going to say any names) wants take away all government funding to Planned Parenthood and this is something that we all know cannot be done. So get over it and move on. If we take away the funding from this organization things will only get worse. Planned Parenthood does many different things for lots of women who cannot afford a doctor. They offer different testings and screenings that would no longer be available to the less fortunate women of this country. Lets listen to a man who did a few things right for this country, yes President Clinton that be. He states“The law strictly and clearly prohibits the use of federal funds for abortion services. The Republicans’ elimination of funding for Planned Parenthood, will in the end cost more than it saves by ending the ability of millions of American women to receive family planning services, breast and cervical cancer screenings and preventative healthcare at cost-efficient Planned Parenthood centers. And the denial of simple birth control and family planning services may well increase both the number of unintended pregnancies and abortions in our country.” Enough said right there this is all obvious and should be obvious enough to forget the matter and stop talking about it.

So what’s the effect of Government shutdown? Well I hope you received your tax refund check. If not then you will be waiting for that. The IRS will close down along with many other government agencies. Our soldiers will still keep fighting over seas but they are currently in the middle of a pay week and yea they probably wouldnt get that other weeks pay for awhile. If you like the beautiful national parks this country has to display you won’t be able to vist them. With the loss of all these parks then the surrounding restaurants and shops will lose a huge amount of business because there will be no tourist.

 Well i think my point is clear the government cannot let this happen. The political parties need to put there heads together think of a plan and finish up  this little wrestling match.  and come to an agreement. This scare is the last thing that needs to happen. Lets save some money continue to fight and get this country back on it feet, and in the meantime not do anything to slow U.S. down. Thankyou for reading Have a nice day, this is Brandon checking out!
