You're not alone. Mall Matty, aka Matt Dundas, took to the National Mall to ask tourists and locals alike what they thought of the government shutdown and the U.S. Congress. The Aussies seem to have it nailed.

(Note that the language in the video gets a little salty from :50-:55, so skip over it if you like. You'll still get the picture.)
