We should all ask ourselves-no wonder our economy is so messed up when the government pays its workers and legislators to be inefficient and inept while the government shut down! If a business doesn't function or is slow, and workers don't work, they don't get paid. So, business are motivated, and the workers are motivated to function so they can all be paid. Our government is at a stale mate, and they won't fix it, why should they? They get paid, they get their healthcare, they are up there living in fairy tale land, while they dispense a living hell on the citizens.
