Headin' For A Shutdown In 1995

News of the government shutdown on November 14, 1995

<strong>Newt n' Bob And the Capitol Hill Follies Of 1995.</strong>


With yet another Government shutdown looming, I thought it would be a good idea to take a look at the last one - the one that lasted a while in 1995. The last time the Republicans had a majority and got everyone in an uproar. Finger pointing everywhere. Accusations flew like confetti and the Government shutdown and sent some 800,000 workers home.

It ended badly and it will most likely end badly again, but there are those who just loves them some chaos.

So, as a reminder . . .here is the news via NPR's Morning Edition for November 14, 1995.
