The government is stopping funding for all government agencies, it happened in 1996 and people don't even really remember it so it's not really that big of a deal.

All NON ESSENTIAL government agencies and employees.

Police and Emergency services are still applicable. I know this guy that work's at a military arsenal basically his job is to test certain chemicals and predict the outcome (in case there was ever a chemical/biological/nuclear attack and he's now laid off because of this.
My point is it affects many more people that we typically think of.
