We discusses the effects the shutdown will have on the economy in our class, (University of Montana,) and this just shows all other countries how incompetent the United States is. The fact that we are making our people suffer just because of disagreements in Congress, just shows them that we can't work well under stress. This situation needs to end now! Put the budget in place for all of the regular expenses, then deal with the debt ceiling before the deadline, then the rest of the expenses can be dealt with. In our opinion, congress gets paid too high of a salary and they don't understand what life is like in the middle class. Those extra funds currently being used in their paychecks should be used for the debt.
