This government shutdown is drastically hurting me and my family. The shutdown of the USDA could make it so I am homeless at the end of the month due to not being able to close on my home (USDA RD loan). This has been 3 months in the making getting the house built and ready and now with my dream of owning my first home I am going to be left without a place to live unless issues are resolved soon. I am terrified of what will happen to interest rates and that this is destroying the economy. If I close on the house after the 31st I will already have to suffer an increased interest rate (1.5% higher or more) and do not even know if I can afford for much more of an increase. I work in the healthcare industry and have directly witnessed what Obamacare is doing and it is damaging. Pay cuts, layoffs, ect... it is not good and I have never been so worried about my future. The USDA needs to be put back to work. This is important to the people of this country and I know these damages are being felt by other people. It is not fair that everything I have worked for and prepared for is being completely destroyed by the actions of this government.
