The country can’t afford a government shutdown, according to Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Bob Casey. Casey, a guest on WNPV’s AM-Edition Thursday morning with Darryl Berger, says both sides need to come together.
“If we have a government shutdown and or we have a problem with the debt ceiling and we go in to default, the economic consequences are almost hard to imagine and describe. It would be a recession for sure or even a very bad recession.”
Casey adds, if lawmakers can come to an agreement on the debt ceiling, the economy would likely expand, creating more than 200-thousand jobs a month.
