Congress dealt a serious economic blow to small businesses when it failed to reach an agreement to avert a federal government shutdown, primarily because lawmakers inexcusably failed to do their jobs and come up with a long-term plan to keep the government running or resolve issues that have strong bipartisan support. Every time the government closes up shop it diminishes consumer confidence and creates a huge amount of uncertainty, which can wreak havoc on small business owners’ bottom lines.
