Shutdown condition in America

1 Oct

World’s superpower country – America entangled in serious financial crisis. Budget Bill couldn’t pass, Shutdown after 17 years.  More than 7 lakh government employees were forced to go on leave without pay.

 

A deadline to fund government spending passed without any agreement today and so the shutdown went into force at 12.01am.

 

The Democrat-dominated Senate and Republican-controlled House of Representatives refused to back down in a clash over President Barack Obama’s controversial healthcare law, known as Obamacare.

The deadlock means non-essential services, including some of America’s most famous tourist attractions, will be forced to close.

Workers classified as essential government employees, such as air traffic controllers or Border Patrol agents, will continue to work.

Shortly after midnight, Mr Obama tweeted: “They actually did it. A group of Republicans in the House just forced a government shutdown over Obamacare instead of passing a real budget.”
