DEMOCRAT GOV’T SHUTDOWN Day 1: Obama Sends out Official letter telling Agencies to Execute Plans to shut Down – Read Here

This represents the culmination of a long fight over the Affordable Care Act that conservative Republicans in both chambers have been adamantly pushing for. But despite Ted Cruz‘s filibuster and hope from conservatives that some red state Democrats would join the Republican minority to pass a bill in the Senate, no such thing happened and both sides could not find anything to agree on.

The House tried offering a last-minute conference between the two chambers, but Harry Reid rejected it because he wouldn’t let Senate Democrats enter that negotiation “with a gun to our head.”

The Executive Office of the President sent out a few minutes before midnight instructing the heads of executive departments and agencies to carry out their plans for shutting down.
