Why conservatives should avoid government shutdowns
As the deadline for yet another shutdown approaches, conservatives, even more than liberals, should try to avoid a second shutdown. For many decades now, conservative politicians have been very successful at convincing Americans that the federal government is a large, bloated bureaucracy that wastes their tax dollars. But during every major government shutdown, Americans get a civics lesson about what the federal government and the people who work for it actually do. After the three most recent and longest shutdowns the one in 1995-6 that lasted 21 days, the one in 2013 that lasted 16 days, and this year’s record-breaking, 35-day shutdown no one was clamoring for smaller government, and no one was insulting civil servants.
