Well I know its going to end, but what happens if they do not come to an agreement by the deadline? I do not do politics well at all, I barely passed government with a C- in high school almost 10 years ago. So break it down in layman terms please, what will it mean for us as people in the US?

This isn't a true shutdown. 80% + of the government is still up and running, business as usual... Even the congressional gym is still open ffs. They pick and choose what to fund and not fund. It is all a game, a ploy, a scare tactic.

Nothing to be honest with you...I really kind of only pay attention to whats going on with me and my family, I don't really pay attention to news and politics and other stuff like that.

People will not be paid. The government wont be able to pay its bills. America will look like an even bigger JOKE and no one will ever take us seriously again. ( we threaten to kick your ass for coming after us, yeah the other countries will laugh and say, with that money?)

I assume people will go crazy and start acting out like fools.

Alright, we'll be boned. Poverty will be sky-high.

Our nation runs on credit and we will have none. Imagine running your house and staying above water only by living off of credit cards. Suddenly all of your cards are maxed, you can't get any more or any loans, and the credits come knocking at your door.

Now imagine that on a national level with unemployment through the roof, food shortages, and rationing.
