21 Funny (And Angry) Tweets About The Government Shutdown
Today (Oct. 1) marks the seventeenth time the country has entered a standstill as the Republican and Democratic parties have failed to reach a consensus on the nation’s spending bill, which funds the government.
Reports state that the reason for the shutdown is partly due to the Affordable Care Act, nicknamed Obamacare, as House Republicans stand firm against re-litigating the health care law. Until an agreement can be reached, 800,000 federal workers are furloughed, people who depend on food assistance or applying for federal loans will feel this impact, and 401 national parks will be closed.
