Business As Usual- Michigan Is Among States Least Impacted by Government Shutdown

When the Federal Government shuts down, it registers in Michigan bet we feel the effects less than 49 of the 50 states.

Obviously, the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia- the hub of the Federal Government, feel the consequences when politicians shut down the system and lock out workers. It is more of an inconvenience than an emergency in our state..

WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across six key metrics, ranging from each state’s share of federal jobs and contracts to the percentage of kids covered by the Children’s Health Insurance Program; Michigan ranked #50 (of 51).

All 50 states are affected (and the District of Columbia) but Republican-leaning Red States (28.17) are hit harder than traditionally Democratic Blue State (22.90) when the government shuts down.
