In the past few decades, Americans have seen government shutdowns due to budgetary concerns.

Find a relevant, recent and credible news piece (article or video) regarding the most recent government shutdown. Suggested sites on which to find credible news include The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CNN, or NPR, just to name a few. Discuss the nature of the impasse, and explore what could have been done differently to avoid the shutdown. Be sure to include a link or attachment of your news piece and cite your source.
