Becky says: Will the government shut down?

Posted: Updated:

Here we go again ... Talking about a government shutdown.  Will it happen?  Will congress figure it out and keep the federal government running?  So many questions - and not so many days left.


I found this article on CNN about how a shutdown would affect daily life.  It's a pretty straightforward break down on how a shutdown would affect a list of things from vacation to Social Security checks.

The Washington Post blogged "Everything you need to know about how a government shutdown works."    Among a multitude of things, it delves into how past shutdown affected various government agencies.

Will it actually happen?  According to a recent Pew Research Center survey of more than a thousand adults across the country... it appears people are divided right down the middle, with 46% of people saying the two sides will reach a budget agreement, and 45% say they will not.

We might just need to wait until Tuesday morning ... when we wake up, we'll find out who opens their doors, and which ones will be closed for business.
