Republicans taking messaging hit on shutdown

The government shutdown just became the longest on record, entering into a 23rd day on Sunday.
Past government shutdowns have not typically had a meaningful impact on the stock market or economic growth, Wall Street economists and market strategists say.
But a partial shutdown dragging on could delay trade talks between the US and China, and contribute to an element of uncertainty that could upset markets.
