Government shutdown looms

Unless a deal on temporary funding is reached today, the U.S. government will shutdown tonight, idling some 800,000 federal workers nationwide and about 75,000 in Georgia. National parks and museums would close, social security benefits would continue but no new claims would be allowed and tax returns not filed electronically would not be processed. FHA home loans would be suspended, hammering an already fragile housing market, and EPA permitting and review would come to a halt. Many of those who think government is too big are hoping for a shutdown. Others, who depend on the government to survive, are frightened. The Obama administration is taking heat for not being able to broker a deal to halt the looming shutdown. What do you think?
