January 20, 2018: Shutdown in America

A national government shutdown is something I thought I wouldn’t experience again. My home state of New Jersey recently had its own shutdown a few months ago, and that had its share of drama due to the former governor’s actions. This current shutdown has theatrics on a much grander scale, with children’s healthcare and the immigration issue hanging in the balance.

There are some politicians at this debate who have American citizens’ best interests in mind, fighting to protect businesses and civil liberties. Other goverment officials are choosing to place party interests over what’s really important to fight for as this shutdown goes on. I really hope that the needs of the people don’t fade into the distance while people debate and fight to get our government up and running again.
