Federal Shutdown, National Parks, and Spring Break
With a federal shutdown looming, we're all worried about how it will affect us and the country. One effect for my family will be our spring break. We have planned a week long trip to the national parks in the southwest. Well, guess what? If there's a federal shutdown, those national parks will be closed.
Beyond my own selfish reasons, there are all the businesses around the parks that will be effected. Spring break is probably most of their first flush weeks after the slow winter season. I hope they have a hole left in their belts to tighten to till summer.
Let's all hope the government figures out who they want to screw and for how much soon or maybe they could get the corporations to pay their taxes. Whatever the solution, figure it out before my spring break, Please!
