The Government Shutdown Has Begun

Spread the love

Despite much hub-bub from Republicans and President Trump.  In a Washington controlled entirely by Republicans, they, were unable to actually pass a bill that would have funded absolutely crucial parts of the U.S government. But instead, they, appear to be attempting to lay all of the blame on  Senate Democrats — but Democrats don’t control much of anything these days in Washington.

Last night, the Senate failed to meet a deal that would fund the government through 16 February. With such,  under the Antideficiency Act, the U.S  Government is required to begin a shutdown under federal law.    The act, enforces, that if and when the government cannot fund itself that it shut down to preserve its resources.

Minutes after the government shutdown,   Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, was pretty much first to spout her usual mantra of lies before anyone else.

“Senate Democrats own the ‘Schumer Shutdown’,” press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. “This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators. When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.”
