Government Shutdown: What To Expect

The Looney Left Report

The crybaby Democrat Party is threatening to shut down the U.S. government this coming Friday when the government's operating funds run out.

USA Today has an article on what to expect (i.e., what will be open and closed, what will be paid and not paid).

They begin with:
WASHINGTON — Funding to keep the federal government up and running will run out at midnight Friday unless Congress passes a new spending bill and President Trump signs it into law. 
If they fail, the result would be a partial government shutdown in which most services would stop except those deemed "essential" — such as national security work performed by the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI. Active duty military personnel would not be furloughed, but roughly 40% of non-defense employees would be. 
Every shutdown is different because federal agencies have quite a bit of leeway in deciding how to carry it out. 
Perhaps Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell can employ the "nuclear option" and pass a budget without the Democrats? We'll see.
