1. U.S. Government Shuts Down For The First Time Since The Last Time A Republican-Led House Had To Deal With A Democratic President

Today, more than a million federal employees are working without pay and another 800,000 have been placed on furlough after the Republican-controlled House of Representatives chose not to pass a budget resolution to keep the U.S. government from shutting down due to political and personal issues with the Democratic President. This marks the the first time this has occurred since 1996, when the Republican-controlled House of Representatives chose not to pass a budget resolution to keep the U.S. government from shutting down due to political and personal issues with the Democratic President. The mood on Capitol Hill last night was apparently somewhat tipsy.
