What do ya'll think the odds are that NYC will have major problems on 4/1 and do u think that it will be a wake up call to the rest of the US? What about Japan?

Since the state legislature in New York NEVER gets the next Fiscal Year's budget out until it's sometimes over four months late, I somehow don't expect anything else to be much of a problem. The government employees and the public will just have more heartburn to deal with and maybe Letterman will have more joke material.
The rest of the country won't hear anything unless Hillary's run for the Senate is affected. Anything less will simply be taken as another "Yankees from New York" joke.
