A government shutdown EVERY year

I read the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s article Friday about how a shutdown of the federal government would affect individuals.   On the short term, the answer seems to be that a shutdown would have little effect on the personal lives of most of us.  Absent the well being of government employees and providing for the common defense, I’m wondering why we don’t do this more often.  My recollection is that there have been 8 shutdowns in the past 30 years.    Maybe it should be similar to the sales tax holiday we have in Georgia.  Change the U.S. Constitution so that a few days EVERY year, the government would shut down without pay for government employees.  The law would be changed to include  Senators, Members of the House and the President.
