This shutdown is not only hurting hundreds of citizens that do work for the government but those that do not as well. I have borrowers that have a child with autism and a move is going to be hard enough but now because they have given notice to their landlord they are going to have to move out of their rental home into a hotel until the USDA Rural Home Loan Guarantee opens back up. They live off Social security wages, where are they going to come up with the money to pay for a hotel, for only god knows how long. I have borrowers that have given notice to their work anticipating a new home purchase and they also will be moving to Oregon and what, renting a hotel?? They have no family or friends here. This U.S. government shutdown will immediately slow approval of thousands of mortgages. If it lasts more than a week, it threatens housing and the broader economic recovery. I have many co-workers that without loans closing they will be forced to file for unemployment, I am afraid for my family that this also may happen and I be forced to file unemployment.
I am begging you to come to a conclusion and stop
Thank you for your time!
