Federal Government Ends A Worthless Temporary Shutdown

t appears as though a nearly three day shutdown of the federal government has ended after an agreement in the U.S. Senate.

A stopgap spending measure received the necessary number of votes Monday afternoon to continue funding the federal government for an additional three weeks. The spending bill must now pass a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives before being signed by President Trump.

Senate Democrats had been opposed to the bill because many wanted it attached to immigration reform and the status of people brought to this country illegally as children, now referred to as DREAMERS. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that the Senate would take up the issue of immigration in the coming weeks. Democratic U.S. Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania blamed the shutdown on Republicans and President Trump due to their “failure to focus on the middle class”.

The government will try to run as usual on Tuesday morning. Expect more delays as the lazy federal workers will use this as an excuse.

  1. It is too bad that the democratic congress thinks more of illegal aliens than our troops and veterans. Take note Bob Casey someday people are going to wake up to your idiotic agenda.
