Boehner's District Feels Pain of Shutdown

Updated: Friday, October 11 2013, 07:22 AM EDT
WEST CHESTER, Ohio (AP) - In House Speaker John Boehner's  suburban Ohio hometown of West Chester, businesspeople are starting to feel the pain of the federal government shutdown.
   
Some in West Chester are getting anxious, too, about his standoff with President Barack Obama.
   
The southwest Ohio area Boehner has represented since he was a township trustee four decades ago is loaded with small businesses that are experiencing delays as the shutdown drags on.
   
They wonder, along with the rest of the country, whether an agreement will be reached to prevent the country's first financial default and what will happen with health care.
   
At a meeting of the West Chester-Liberty Chamber Alliance, businesspeople said the shutdown is holding up real estate sales and mortgages, hindering business startups, and delaying estate settlements.
