President Obama predicted a decrease of the American economy after the government shutdown


As specified in his statement, even “NASA will shut down almost entirely, but mission control will remain open to support the astronauts serving on the space station.”
But a lot of other consequences were predicted, including the  fact that millions of Americans being in public service will have to stay at their jobs without receiving a salary. This will have a big impact on the entire economy because business owners would see delays in raising capital.
During his speech, the American President accused the Republicans for their action to determine a government shutdown, conditioning their vote to funding government to some ideological demands such as limiting women to contraception or requesting a delay in the application of the Affordable Care Act.
According to historical data, two previous government shutdownd in 1995 and 1996 had a cost of $1.4 billion. In the actual situation, the Senate signed a measure to ensure that members of the military would continue to get paid.
