The current government shutdown is madness, regardless of which side you see it from. But the phrase, ” the shutdown made me do it” is not always a truthful answer.

If we were 2 or 3 months into a shutdown that would be understandable. But if you are waiting until the cert expires to renew, and it expires, that is clearly on you. Queue up Fail sound here.
