“Trust in Government Nears Record Low”

The title of this article alone is enough to bring the reader in. This article talks about how, according to a recent survey, only 19% of Americans trust the federal government to do what is right and just. Meanwhile, the surveyed also showed that 26% of Americans are angry with the government. This record low trust in the government is probably due to the fact that our government had to completely shut down because parties could not agree. It is kind of alarming and demoralizing that such a large portion of the country doesn't trust our government. I read an article that mentioned the cost of the recent government shutdown cost 24 billion dollars. I think this is the reason people are so upset and in discontent with the government.
