US Govt Shutdown News


As of midnight Saturday morning, much of the US govt shutdown (technically only those labeled as "non-essential"--who makes that decision who such employees are?) due to a lack of a funding bill that needs approval of the Congress.

However in an historic, without precedent, event the entire body of these non-essential federal govt employees unilaterally spontaneously decided to work their regular shifts for the duration.

When informed of this, the Congress had a massive hissy fit that govt employees put the welfare of US citizens ahead of their partisan manipulations. Their reactions was recorded on seismic devices across the planet.

The good news is that the various vendors of personal care products for the Congress were not affected, and the members need not worry that they will look like death warmed over on their non-stop appearances on TV.

As I stated on line 1, this is fake news.

You should look up what happened in Australia that one time they failed to agree the budget - never happened again.
