US consumer confidence plunges on gov’t shutdown

WASHINGTON (AP) - Americans’ confidence in the economy fell this month to the lowest level since April, as many worried about the impact of a 16-day partial government shutdown. The decline could weigh on spending and economic growth. The Conference Board said today that its index of consumer confidence dropped to 71.2 in October, down from 80.2 the previous month. September’s figure was slightly higher than initially reported.

Repubs are so hypocritical. They always preach about being fiscally responsible and spending, but will do something like shut down the government and/or let the country default, causing billions of dollars, if not more, of damage to the economy. And on top of shutting down the government, they gave back pay to the gov workers who they made stay home. All this on a plan that they knew had no chance of succeeding. Smart strategery.

Dontbafool Its too bad that you don't follow your post name. This shut down was organized by OBAMMY himself. He's the first president to shut down national parks and monuments . He didn't want to negotiate on anything. He acted like a spoiled little brat. This boy doesn't worry about you or any citizen. He's only in it for himself. The GOP passed bills that the rest of the demoncrats wouldn't passed because Harry Reid wouldn't let them .Get the facts right and quit drinking the Kool-Aid that the lying boy in the WH is giving to you to drink
