Its been over 18 years, since the 1995-96 government shutdown occurred, yet again we find ourselves in the same situation as before. In 1995-96, a clash between Democrats (Bill Clinton) and the Republican Congress, initiated by disputes over Medicare, education reforms, environment, and public health; had caused a government shutdown.One that, like today forloughed thousands of federal employees for 21 days ( presently... government still shutdown). In both instances, the public had pointed its fingers towards the Republican conservatives who 'brought this down onto America', and yet today I and vast number of other believe that it is their fault yet again. Their conservative and non-compromisable virtues is the one and only reason that our government is still not able to function and one that will plunge American and the world economy into a recession, one that we so haggardly got out off.
