President Obama Makes a Statement, just a few hours before the shutdown

Posted on September 30, 2013

HAWAII ISLAND – Shutdown procedures are being executed across the United States tonight, after Congress failed to reach an agreement on a budget before Monday’s midnight deadline. It is the first federal shutdown in nearly two decades.

The Republican controlled House and the Democrat controlled Senate have been playing political hot potato with the budget. The House had tied a one year delay on the start of Obamacare into their version of the spending plan, which was unsuccessful in the Senate.
