My wife and I and another couple recently returned from a trip to the national parks in Utah. We were disappointed the first three days because of the government shutdown.
When the parks reopened we were able to appreciate the natural beauty in your state. I had the opportunity to speak with some business people and hear how devastating the shutdown was to the local economies.
I find it difficult to believe that Sen. Mike Lee was foolish enough to agree to a government shutdown when he had to know the effect it would have on the Utah economy.
