Does anybody here subscribe to Businessweek? [View all]

It's a Bloomberg publication....the economic editor, Peter Coy was on Washington Journal answering questions. He did not correct republicans with misinformation or stand up with democrats, but when all was said and done, the CSpan host asked what he thought about a shutdown..

To paraphrase, he said that it would be like a vaccination, the cost and the pain would prevent a worse sickness, and if all the Congress only has to fail to pass budgets or revise debt ceilings unless they get their way, that would be worse than a shutdown.

He said that after a shutdown, they will come to their senses, sit down and do the right thing before more damage is done.

Shutdown means prevention of future threats because they won't work.
