Jay Leno On Government Shutdown
What would happened if the federal government shutted down? Well, during the latest shutdown in 1995, Jay Leno in an appearance in Las Vegas described the effects this way:
Imagine what will happen when the federal government shuts down. Illegal immigrants could start pouring into our cities, drug use could sky rocket. In L.A. they'll think they can get away with murder [This was shortly after O.J. Simpson was acquited]. So what's different? No different really.
But then he corrected himself by saying that one thing would change:
Congress is being laid off too, and this effects the local economy here in Vegas too. Five brothels just went out of business, just like that.
