The US government shut down because the budget deadline passed. The US Congress has a key role in passing spending bills, which fund the government.

some government funded things will go away, it wont change things too much, unless you used some of there programs. the government shut down in the 90s also.

The bottom line is, the people voted into office to care for the United States did not do their job. Instead of mature discussion and compromise we have childish actions that make them and consequently our country look ridiculous. We need leaders, leaders who are wise, mature, and dedicated.

In simple terms, extremists have taken over GOP and refused to let the senate bill come to the floor for a vote which everyone says would pass
