This weekend, unless a deal is reached, there could be a federal government shutdown.
NBC News has a story about possible residual effects of a shutdown that makes a great unintentional point:
The federal government does an almost unfathomable number of things, so a shutdown would likely affect everyday Americans more than they realize. https://t.co/iCjrxfJ85B— NBC News (@NBCNews) September 29, 2023
"Government does an almost unfathomable number of things."
Thanks for that, NBC:

Yes it is!
The federal government does an almost unfathomable number of things, so a shutdown would likely affect everyday Americans more than they realize.
While the 4 million Americans who work for the federal government — the nation’s largest employer — would be most affected, a range of economists, including the White House Council of Economic Advisers, estimate their lost wages and halted operations would reduce overall economic growth forecasts by 0.1% or 0.2% each week.
Every now and then the mainstream media makes a good point, though this certainly wasn't the takeaway NBC News had in mind.

"Journalism" isn't totally worthless at times.
You’re right NBC News, we need a much smaller government that doesn’t have its slimy tendrils in almost every aspect of our lives.— Super Journalist (Ret) - JOURN-L of Skrypton (@Magnum_CK) September 29, 2023

Also, NBC they left something out of the story:
