|The Daily Quote|
“The first shutdown of government agencies in almost two decades became a reality overnight, as the House and Senate were unable to pass a stop-gap funding measure by the start of the new fiscal year Tuesday. As hard-line House Republicans demanded that any funding bill contain anti-Obamacare provisions… The result was that the outcome leaders in both parties said they wanted to avoid was announced in a memo from the administration to agencies shortly before midnight, directing them to shutdown parts of the federal government. The absence of a spending plan means as many as 800,000 non-essential federal workers could be furloughed; hundreds of thousands of others could be asked to work without pay (though President Obama signed a measure to ensure military personnel will be paid in a shutdown); federal offices and parks will be closed; and government services will be scaled back or halted for veterans, seniors and others. Medicare, Social Security, military work and public safety functions will continue.”
