U.S. Government Shuts Down

Government in partial shutdown amid budget standoff between the House, Senate and White House

The House and Senate were unable to agree on a government-funding bill before a midnight Monday deadline, forcing the federal government to shut down for the first time in 17 years.

The shutdown means that 800,000 federal workers are to be furloughed (unpaid leave) and more than a million others would be asked to work without pay. There would be NO guarantee of back pay once the deadlock is over.
