I guess Tricky Business sums it up. I got a big out of town gig cancelled due to Govern Shutdown. Never thought it would affect me but it did! Here is the email I got from client:

"I’m sad too. We are a government contractor, and this has been an extremely hard year. First there was sequestration which cut off some of our contracts, then the Government Shutdown. It’s having catastrophic results. Believe me, we would all much prefer having a big party, but it just isn’t possible this year. When elections come up for US Congress, please remember that their inability to perform their jobs has had a major impact on the economy. And all they did with the vote was temporarily postpone the issue. Unless a miracle occurs, we will be going through this all again in January/February."

You got that right Joe. Really ticked off about this mess. Looks like its only the beginning of this latest mess they created. Imagine the debt mess starting all over again in 2014.

Unless we change the US Senate in 2014, do you believe there will be a 2016 election? Representative government will have been dead for 8 consecutive years!

It doesn't matter anymore if there is a 2016 election.

Sorry to hear you got hit by politics. The strange thing is, the workers who were "laid off" by the whole thing essentially got a free paid vacation, 'cuz they are all getting back pay for it. As they should I suppose, but the only people who got hurt are US!

Cheers!
