If you want to understand why U.S. Government is shutdown, here is video from Jon Stewart. Jon is an American political satirist, writer, director, television host, actor, media critic, and stand-up comedian. He is widely known as host of The Daily Show, a satirical news program that airs on Comedy Central.
American Politics and constitution is different. Very different. It comes with freedom of speech.
Today is the Day 3 of the Shut Down and there is no resolution insight.
Let me know if you have any questions or concerned about the shutdown in the comments section below.
Question from a reader
It’s very distressing as we have several students for 2014 who absolutely confused. What do i tell them any authentic link?lot many issues as bank loans and universities attitude involved too.
For authentic links refer to this article Day 1: Game Over : U.S. Government Shuts Down. Closed.
There are not many sources that cover the impact of Government Shut Down on International Students, F1 Visa, H1B Visa and other visa holders. I’m sure many students planning to study in USA are worried about this shutdown.
Does this shutdown means that American economy is not good? I have applied for SPRING 2014 but I am a bit worried now after this news. Is it still worth studying in USA. Will there be any effect on the students to get jobs after graduation.
Here is my two cents on Government Shutdown:
Shut Down affects life of several people in USA. I don’t agree to shut down and holding entire country hostage because one party doesn’t agree to a law passed as per constitution (watch the video above).
Having said that, so far the impact on the economy is little to none.
Do you have to be worried?
Nope. Economy is doing good. Lot’s of job openings and companies are hiring. Last month, over 150,000 jobs were added by private companies (ADP report).
Students getting ready for Spring 2014 and Fall 2014 can continue to make progress and preparations with your visa, university application or test prep.
