Huffington Post: Here’s What Will Happen If The Government Shuts Down
If the 2013 shutdown is an indicator of what happens in a shutdown, then we can expect:
850,000 federal workers would be furloughed.
All national parks, zoos and monuments, as well as Smithsonian museums will close.
Thousands of food inspection workers would be furloughed, including positions related to public health science and international programs that ensure that meat, poultry and egg products from foreign countries are safe.
About 3/4 of the employees from the National Institutes of Health and two-thirds of employees from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would be furloughed.
Passport offices, small business loan offices, and IRS call centers would also shut down.
Lots of smaller federal office would close.
The effect on the economy could be in the order of $24 billion based on the 2013 shutdown.
Why do all those? Trump wants it so he can blame Democrats. Maybe he'll even find a way to blame Obama.
