For the first time in 17 years, the Federal government is in a partial shutdown.
Congress went back and forth until the very end and missed the midnight deadline to pass a new budget for the start of the fiscal year.
Late Monday night, lawmakers left the Capitol for a few hours to sleep and will be back Tuesday morning to continue working on a deal. Analysts expect this shutdown will end after a few days.
The disagreement is over whether changes to the Affordable Care Act should be part of a bill to fund the government.
"The House has voted to keep the government open. But we also want basic fairness for all Americans under Obamacare," Speaker of the House Representative John Boehner said.
"It is embarrassing that these people who are elected to represent the country are representing the Tea Party," Majority Leader Senator Harry Reid said.
An estimated 800,000 Americans will be furloughed while Congress continues debating. Federal employees will report to work for about four hours on Tuesday to wrap things up and then be sent home without pay.
Late Monday night, President Barack Obama signed a bill into law that will allow members of the military to be paid throughout the shutdown.
This shutdown will also have an affect on a lot more people. If you want a federal loan, a gun permit or a passport, you’ll have to wait until the shutdown is over. National Parks, zoos and museums will be shut down. Campers at National Parks will be given 48 hours to make other arrangements and leave the parks. NASA will be shut down almost entirely.
For now, Federal Courts will continue to operate like normal. If the shutdown continues, the court system would have to begin furloughs of employees whose work is not considered "essential."
