    Default US gov't has shut down in 2018

    Americans, this is your chance. Import as many Kinder Eggs as possible. No one can stop you!

    So really though, is this huge, what does it all mean now?

    The US government has begun shutting down many of its services after the Senate failed to agree on a new budget.

    A bill to fund the federal government until 16 February did not receive the required 60 votes amid a bitter dispute over immigration and border security.

    It is the first shutdown ever to happen while the same party, the Republicans, controls Congress and the White House.

    The impasse will affect hundreds of thousands of federal workers, and the recriminations have already begun.

    President Donald Trump accused Democrats of putting politics above the interests of the American people.
    As of 00:01 Saturday (05:01 GMT), many federal agencies are no longer open for business - although essential services will continue to run.

    Most staff in the departments of housing, environment, education and commerce will stay at home. Half of workers in the treasury, health, defence and transportation departments will also not be going to work on Monday.
    America is going buck wild. Crazy.

    It really isn't that crazy. It actually happens quite frequently, especially when bills and laws always threaten a shut down. The federal workers will get their pay on the back end. They can pretty much call it a paid vacation.

    Think of all the people who went to the States at this time and wanted to see a national park or take in the sites on government property, it wouldn't turn out so well. Not good.
