Government Shuts Down As Congress Fails To Pass Funding Measure

The federal government is now in a partial shutdown after Congress failed to pass a stopgap measure to keep funding going ahead of a midnight deadline.

It's an unprecedented situation given that shutdowns usually happen in times of divided government. But this is the first time it's happened with one party controlling both Congress and the White House.

On Saturday morning, President Trump responded on Twitter, accusing Democrats of playing "Shutdown politics."

What gets me 4:55, is these idiots think they are so important and above the citizens that pay them to represent the same taxed citizen. They put their pants on one leg at a time, like us.
