Might as well use a British news source for this, it’s not like you are going to find a non partisan story over here anywhere.
A partial US government shutdown has taken effect after US lawmakers failed to break a budget impasse.
Mr Trump, who has to sign off any deal, is insisting at least $5bn (£4bn) in funding be included for his long-promised wall along the Mexican border.
Lawmakers adjourned last-minute talks on Friday evening.
In the absence of an agreement, funding for about a quarter of all US federal agencies lapsed at midnight (05:00 GMT Saturday).
It means the departments of Homeland Security, Transportation, Agriculture, State, and Justice will begin to shut down and federal national parks and forests will also be affected.
The partial closure, the third of 2018, means hundreds of thousands of federal employees will have to work unpaid or be put on temporary leave.
It’s the usual Kabuki theater. Happens every fucking year. Do you know why that is?
Because Congress hasn’t done it’s fucking job and passed a budget. The same as last year, the year before that and for so fucking long I can’t even remember them doing it anymore.
So fuck all of ’em and let me know who folds first this time. My money says Trump ain’t gonna cave, even though the money for the wall has already been approved in the military budget.
Bet ya didn’t know that, did ya?
He must be laughing his ass off at these idiots.
Now he is just fucking with them and wants them to pay for it again so he doesn’t have to use the military money for it.
These people really are stupid.
