What causes a shutdown?

Report as

Congress has to approve budgets for certain things every year. The deadline is midnight on September 30th each year. Since they didn't approve the budget, certain federal programs didn't get their money for the next fiscal year. No money, no paychecks, closed down.

What happens if Congress can't agree on a spending bill? Since they didn't approve the budget for the next fiscal year then how long do you think the Government Shutdown usually last?

Longest it lasted in the past was 27 days I believe. If it stays shut down, we'd probably have a revolution on our hands lol.

Irresponsibility, pure and simple. It's inadequate leadership. There is NO justification. It's all about Idealology.
