Ichabod Crane Reacts To The Government Shutdown
Sleepy Hollow's 18th century man did not fight in the Revolutionary War for this shit.
It's all a little complicated, are you sure you want me to—
Fine, if you say so. Let's go.
So first of all the government is currently shut down.
In order to keep running every year, Congress has to pass a funding bill. Which they didn't.
Mostly because it included some healthcare stuff Democrats and Republicans can't seem to agree on.
I mean, that's a little harsh. Although they DID put off debating it until literally the last minute...
Pretty much. So now if you need a loan, a passport, or to visit a national park, tough shit.
Also a bunch of people who work for the government have been put on furlough.
Although the president's still getting paid.
And so's Congress.
Er, and we're also about to max out 16 trillion dollars of debt.
Mostly because it doesn't affect our internet connection, to be honest.
Now you're just being rude.
On the upside, there are no apocalyptic headless horsemen on the loose! Yet.
And guess what!? Starbucks is still open!
No, but, there aren't exactly—oh, forget it.
