The political world is a dangerous place, and the government shutdown in 2020 has been one of the worst in recent memory.
The shutdown has affected the federal government, the military, and a variety of other public services.
However, this shutdown isn’t unique.
The first shutdown in 20 years was also very bad, and it left behind a lasting legacy.
Here’s a guide to how to get the most out of your government shutdown.
The First Shutdown 20 Years Ago The first government shutdown was the result of the resignation of President Richard Nixon in August 1974.
The Nixon administration had been facing economic troubles due to a spike in oil prices.
The president had promised to address the economic situation, but that didn’t work out.
Nixon resigned on January 3, 1975.
Nixon had already been impeached for Watergate in 1973.
During the Nixon administration, the federal budget was cut by a whopping $2 trillion.
This was one of Nixon’s biggest mistakes, and Nixon had to pay for it by raising taxes.
After Nixon’s resignation, Nixon appointed John Stockwell to head the Department of Justice, which led to the creation of the Office of Legislative Counsel.
Stockwell led the government through the next few years, and by the time Nixon left office, the government was spending $3 trillion more per year than it had before the shutdown.
This government shutdown had major impacts on the American economy, the economy’s ability to function, and even the economy itself.
The Next Big Government Shutdown 20 years later The government shutdown of 2019 also took a toll on the economy.
According to the Congressional Budget Office, the budget deficit for the year was $847 billion, a 7.5 percent decline from the previous year.
This budget deficit is more than the entire federal government’s entire budget in 2020.
While it didn’t cause the economic downturn that it did in 1974, the 2019 shutdown was one that caused the U.S. to slow down for two years.
The next major government shutdowns took place during the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.
The 1980s Government Shutdown That year, Ronald Reagan became president and enacted the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act, which would allow him to spend $100 billion of government funds to stimulate the economy during the crisis.
The Emergency Economic Stimulus Act was supposed to last for three years, but by the early 1980s it had already expired.
This act gave Reagan a massive boost in the government’s ability, money, and resources to handle economic challenges.
The U.s. government spent $1.3 trillion in the first seven months of 1981 alone.
The government spent nearly $5 trillion during the same period.
During that same period, the U,s.
economy was shrinking and unemployment was at an all-time high.
The Reagan administration used the emergency relief to cut taxes, boost spending, and expand government programs.
In 1981, Congress passed the Economic Recovery Act, also known as the Economic Adjustment and Reinvestment Act.
This legislation created two programs: the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and the Temporary Aid to Needy Veterans (TIVA).
These programs paid benefits to families and individuals who were unemployed and were experiencing financial hardships.
The temporary aid was meant to help people get back on their feet.
By the end of 1981, the unemployment rate had fallen to just over 5 percent, and inflation was running at just 2.7 percent.
The new programs also made it easier for individuals to get back into the workforce, and to get benefits from government programs that weren’t on the table.
The TANF was a temporary cash assistance program, which meant that recipients could receive payments up to $3,000 per month.
The TIVA was a permanent aid program, meant to keep people employed.
This program paid people the minimum wage or, at the very least, allowed them to keep paying income tax.
The Temporary Assistance to Needier Families (TIFF) program also had an immediate effect on the unemployment numbers.
In addition to paying cash benefits, the Temporary Food Assistance Program (TFA) also had a direct impact on the government budget.
The program paid food stamp recipients the amount of $1,200 per month and offered them benefits for six months.
These benefits, coupled with the $500 a month in cash benefits from the TANFs, meant that the unemployed were paying taxes on a monthly basis.
The federal government also cut spending in a number of areas to make up for the reduced tax revenue.
The budget cuts came during the second week of May 1981.
At that point, unemployment had been at a high of 8 percent, inflation was at 1.7, and unemployment insurance was at its lowest level since it began in 1973, the Congressional Research Service reported.
The final shutdowns During the second shutdown, the United States was experiencing a massive economic crisis.
By this time, the recession had already begun, and many of the problems that plagued the
