Here are 3 things that you may be wanting to know today about the government shutdown.
Republicans and Democrats in Congress are jockeying back and forth Obamacare and funding of the government. Not since the Bill Clinton manned the White House in 1996, has there been a government shutdown.
Here are three things to know about the pending government shutdown for Monday, Sept. 30:
1) What is the current state of things? The new fiscal year started yesterday, Tuesday, Oct. 1, so Obama and both chambers in Congress needed to pass a bill to fund the government by midnight on September 30.
2) What happened the past few days? The House had passed a spending bill that puts off the implementation of Obamacare for one year, early on Sunday. Then, a 2.3% tax increase on medical devices was repealed by The House. So the Senate then sent the spending bill back to The House because it was missing both policy provisions that are “non-starters” for the Democrats.
3) Will I “feel” the shutdown? Some will feel the effects of the government shutdown. Some won’t. People who are on Social Security will still receive benefits, you will still pay taxes and the U.S. Mail will continue. However, without funding, the national parks, government-funded museums or any historic sites all had their gates and doors shut down Tuesday. For more detail, USA TODAY’s Gregory Korte provides answers to 66 questions about the government shutdown.
