Thanks for starting this forum. It’s hard for me to come up with any time a government shutdown is justified because I cannot think of any time something good has come out of a shutdown. The question that struck me the most was this one:

5) What aspect of the shutdown frustrates you the most?

The thing that frustrates me the most was actually brought up on The Daily Show. Of course, the Daily Show is a satirical news show, but this point is an important one. Despite the fact that Congress has a 10% approval rating, they still have about a 90% incumbent election rate. The vast majority of the people who are to blame for this mess will be easily re-elected.
