What does the shutdown mean to the average American? Besides all the political drama and childishness between Republicans and Democrats, what does the average person actually know? What do they think about our debt ceiling and how much do they care?
Do you know what your bank would do if you had $5 left in your checking account, but you write a check for $20? Would they automatically transfer $15 from your savings account to checking as a free courtesy? Or…
