On day two of the Federal Government shutdown we continue to monitor the situation as Congress has all hands on deck in effort drive their approval rating, which is currently at 10% to something closer to the purity of that magic ZERO percent marker. Or perhaps the constituents they are trying to please are in the 1% demographic?
Also today: 1 in 5 kids in the United States exist below the poverty line. Is this just a fact of life, or a collective choice our society is ok with? Also, National Parks are officially closed, with their furloughed employees locked out of a job, but if you are a corporation currently drilling for oil and gas, as companies in 12 of our national parks are doing, have no fear- you can carry on. The shutdown does not affect you.
