The crises continue to rise for Joe Biden.
Next on the list is a potential government shutdown.
The end of the fiscal year is just three days away and a shutdown now seems to be a real possibility.
Even the Pentagon has begun preparing for it.
At the same time, Biden’s agenda is facing opposition from his own party in the house and senate.
Hanging in the balance along with a government shutdown is Biden’s signature $3.5 trillion “Build Back Better” package and a separate $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package, which passed the Senate but will not be voted on by the House until Thursday, just hours before the Oct. 1 deadline
‘NOBODY WANTS TO SEE A SHUTDOWN’: At the Pentagon, they’ve been through this drill before.
“We hope that Congress will prevent a costly shutdown,” said Pentagon spokesman John Kirby on Friday. “The administration’s efforts remain focused on preventing a shutdown and a catastrophic default. In the meantime, OMB is preparing for any contingency as is consistent with long-standing practice across multiple administrations.”
“Nobody wants to see a shutdown,” said Kirby. “And we obviously will take seriously, as we always do, and as I think you’ve seen through previous shutdowns, should there be one, that we have to continue to defend the nation, and we have to make sure that the capabilities, the resources, the people are in place to continue to look after our national security interests.”
