I am a big ole liberal and I am not happy about the shut down. In fact, something like 72 percent of Americans were against the shut down, which means that I small minority of extremist Republicans are holding the entire country hostage.

Right now we aren't feeling the full effects of the shutdown, because government, like all large ships, take a while to lose momentum. That said, there are already victims of the shutdown in play, including 30 children, most with cancer, for whom their last chance at a cure was cut off from them this week due to the shutdown.
