I say government shut down means our federal income tax should be reduced relative to the number of shutdown days.

10 days shut down. 10/365 = .0274%. Reduce your federal tax burden by this percentage if the shutdown ends today. For conversation lets say each of us pays 5,000 in federal taxes. Its much more or less obviously but keeping it simple. 5,000 X .0274 = $137.00 X 50,000,000 workers = $6,850,000,000. Cool. 7 billion dollar cost to our "bad parenting parents".

There is no savings, this is just gonna be a paid vacation, the money will still be spent.

I fact it will cost more since those people will get paid, plus new people they are hiring to be security during the shutdown

Feds to allow states to open parks...

No word on if it will allow the states to collect the revenue for themselves. I think we all know the answer to that one...

Would be nice though since the GC is a moneymaking park that offsets the cost of running other parks in the country.

Perhaps there is good news about us reopening. Utah Governor Gary Herbert is opening 5 Utah National Parks today! Fingers crossed.
