Government shutdowns are an ineffective means of resolving budgetary disagreements. They not only have major economic consequences, but also hurt those who rely on federal money.
Without the possibility of government shutdowns, there would be less incentive for members of Congress to work together on budgetary decisions. This bill makes it too easy for Congress to avoid these decisions and prolong the status quo.
