The Government Shutdown Explained (Like You're an Idiot)

Tori Anderson's insight:

This article is about how and why e government shut down, but explained well so people like me can understand it. The fiscal year ended September 30th and the government shut down because the represetatives and house  could not agree on what to spend the government funding on. Law makers could not agree on what to spend money on. the non essential government jobs will be put out of work, but no one knows for how long. Examples of these shut down jobs are  national park rangers and national parks or zoos. Things like obamacarae will not be shut down. The next part in this problem is we have to wait until the lawmakers agree and usually government shut downs do not last more than a few weeks.

the last time we had a government shut down was 2 summers ago when I was almost 15 and going to get my drivers permit. The drivers station was part of the shut down because it is non essential. One question I have is that how long the lawmakers have to make a decision and why they didn't get to it. Also how they can determine what government jobs are essential and non essential. The senate is for obamacare and they want to see it succeed. The problem is that the republicans don't want obamacare to be a law. Or to have medical care
