Dakota Hollingsworth's insight:

   I believe, and agree that government is a costly item to keep up and running, but when the politicians cannot make up their minds it gets interesting. When the politicians can't make up their minds and close the government it only costs more money when it's closed. There are 800,000 people without jobs during a government shut down.

 

   In my point of view when there are so many jobs that aren't being fulfilled, our country as a whole takes a step back. Instead of closing the government keep it open and face penis problem in a proactive manor.
