    There is a large government/ private research center here.  They have been shutdown.  Some of the people will be adversely affected.  Many will feel like they should be, but won't really.   The government will come out better if the shutdown continues for awhile.  This is why.  Many of the long term employees have months of vacation on the books.  If they take or are forced to take vacation, the liability of the company goes away.  I am not saying this will be a lot of money, but unfunded liabilities are what are  causing cities in CA to go into bankruptcy. 
    When I say some will suffer he suffering will be horrible.  Those who suffer the most will be those who seem to be the targets, they would be the young father, whose baby girl is scheduled for surgery in a few months; the vacation he's been saving so he can help with the care of his older child, is going away because of the shut down. The young people are always the targets. Shame on, no I am not going to play the blame game. Look for solutions, not blame.

      The solution would BE to place blame where blame is due.   Don't forget that our government is supposed to work in the best interests of the whole USA.    Who's the top guy on that arena of "government" officials?     He could, ya know, actually negotiate instead of clinging to his "baby bill" as though it were his life;   he could consider the lives and livelihoods of American citizens.
      Trust me, he's not worrying about "unintended circumstances".   He's not even worried about collateral damage, which is a better description of the effects of his stubbornness.

      I'd say all the consequences of a shutdown are unintended since both parties say they didn't want to shut down the government. Funny how when the government does wrong no one intended it to happen but when it does right everyone wants the credit. I say the government we have today is actually the unintended consequence of the constitution, but I guess that's the price of freedom. The unintended consequence of freedom is less freedom and might be the end of America as we know it if the Democrats have their way..

    A question few people seem to be asking is: why do we put essential services into the hands of an institution that will shut them down if those within it can't agree on something? Jeez. At least if a restaurant has an issue with the management and has to close for a while, people have other restaurants they can go to. Imagine if food was socialised and food production stopped completely because the Dems and Reps had a domestic.

      You make a valid point.  The more we socialize our country, the more our country's citizens will be adversely impacted when Congress can't do its job.

    I think there is plenty of blame to go around.  Just pass a clean budget FFS.
