University of Michigan Flint Political Science Professor weighs in after shutdown
Flint, Mich.-- People across the country relying on checks from the government didn't get left in the dark after the brief shutdown in the early morning of February 9, 2018.
Assistant Political Science Professor Jason Kosnoski from U Of M Flint believes this uncertainty is just the tip of the iceberg.
He says both political parties are at a crossroads, and they need to work out underlying issues.
They include global warming, immigration and the future of jobs.
“In the short term this deals passed there's not going to be shut downs for a while, but that doesn't mean there won't be continuing, I don't want to say crisis of government, but crisis of parties as they work out who they're going to be,” Kosnoski said.
Kosnoski says the riftt in both parties is a big example of why voters need to go to the polls.
So they can have a voice in what the parties look like in the future.
