In a tense and urgent statement today, the White House issued a stark warning to the American people, revealing that there are only 61 hours and 55 minutes remaining until a government shutdown unless “extreme” House Republicans can resolve their internal “chaos and inability to govern.”
The dire consequences of such a shutdown were laid out by the White House, painting a bleak picture of the potential fallout. If the government is forced to shutter, it is anticipated that a wide range of adverse impacts will be felt across the nation, affecting countless Americans.
In a memo written by Andrew Bates the Pavlovic Today obtained, Deputy Press Secretary and Senior Communications Adviser stated, “Only one group out of the five that made an unequivocal, public, mutual agreement is now unilaterally breaking their promise and threatening a needless, extreme shutdown: House Republicans. Many House Republicans themselves have admitted this, saying they alone would bear responsibility for a shutdown. That conclusion is widely shared in reporting.”
One of the most immediate and pressing concerns is the potential for lost jobs. A government shutdown would mean furloughs for many federal employees, which could result in financial hardship for countless families and individuals. Moreover, troops serving the nation would be forced to work without pay.
“The consequences for the American people will be very damaging – from lost jobs, to troops working without pay, to jeopardizing important efforts to fight fentanyl, deliver disaster relief, provide food assistance, and more. Nothing can distract from that,” warned the White House.
Yesterday, President Biden said funding the government was one of “the most basic responsibilities of the Congress and it’s time for the Republicans in the House of Representatives to stand up and do their job.”
He offered a pessimistic view of finding any kind of a resolution with the Republicans. A possibility of a government shutdown, according to Biden would be “disastrous.”
