Government Shutdown

 

 

The crisis was averted…temporarily…again.
The 11th
hour deal made Friday night will fund the gov’t
through
mid next week until the agreed deal can be
finalized.
While no shutdown is good people are still
frustrated
and have every right to be skeptical until the
deal is officially
signed. So what are people saying:

What does it

all mean? Do you have 
questions?
 
Are you upset
about
it? Whatever the case, 
we
want to hear your
insights,
get answers for you or 
at least
get that venting
off
your chest. Oh, and see that
box on 
the
right? Ask
your
questions there.
Below
you’ll find
GovLoop
blogs
and forums,
keeping your finger
on
the 
pulse of what
other govies are saying about the
shutdown.
