On Feb. 17, the country hit 249 days without a government, breaking a record set last November by Iraq. A caretaker government has been running Belgium since elections on June 13, but despite countless negotiations among the fragmented political parties, the nation’s leaders are not even close to an agreement on a new coalition.
After reading this and with the hubbub going on in Washington about how we are going to run out of money and they will have to shut the government down I’m thinking – Good idea!
How much can we cut the budget by just shuting down a week or so here and there. How about every third week we close America. I don’t think much would happen. Some people wouldn’t even notice. That’s a good thing.
