The sixteen day government "shutdown" ended last Thursday. But as we'll hear in this next interview the shutdown left some government operations untouched. Mattea Kramer of the National Priorities Project provides some perspective on the winners and losers. Mattea Kramer co-authored with Jo Comerford, the article “What Was ‘Essential’ and What Wasn’t, The Government Shutdown in Perspective” and she joins us now.
