Tonawanda News — And, coincidentally, on the first day of the shutdown that program that everyone hates went into effect. As you may have surmised, the sky did not, in fact, fall down. The forces of tyranny remain held at bay (unless you count Congress, which is still here).
Actually, so many people wanted to buy into the health insurance they crashed the websites.
Good thing we shut down the government because of how much people would suffer. The biggest problem was a “404 page not found” error on a website for a couple hours — so it would appears as though we’re going to make it through this darkest of hours pretty much unscathed.
So, Congress — and I’m really looking at you, here, Republicans — get this thing done so I can go back to my pumpkin coffee and Cardinals baseball in peace.
