Does anyone actually care about a "government shutdown"? It's just a buzzword for doomers.

I don’t understand what you mean when you say “buzzword for doomers” . It has happened before and will happen again. Although I don’t think it will have a lasting impact, I do believe it will have a short term impact on some companies. This may create a buying opportunity.

And yes, I think people do care about a shutdown as many services will be unavailable during a shutdown and many people are affected. Usually banks will give 0% interest loans to military people affected during the shutdown, knowing they will be paid when the government reopens.

Services that may be impacted include national parks, museums, possibly even bond payments.

I don’t think any stocks are affected. The assumption the government will reopen is priced in
