What A Government Shutdown Would Look Like

Posted by | February 27, 2011 21:20 | Filed under: Top Stories

Here is a handy guide to what shutting down the government, something some Republicans think could be a good idea, would accomplish:

  • Many veterans services would be cut.
  • National parks and museums would shut and lose revenue.
  • No passports would be issued.
  • New Social Security claims won’t be processed.
  • Hundreds of thousands of federal employees would be furloughed and not paid; they’d eventually get back pay, unlike federal contractors, who may not.
  • Cash-starved states would get no federal funds.
  • Recruitment and testing of federal law enforcement officials would be suspended.
