As of midnight Monday, the federal government has shut down for the first time in 17 years. Earlier Monday, the Senate rejected another version of the budget because the House had attached an effort to derail the President's healthcare bill. 
The plan from the House is to now request a conference with the Senate to work out their differences, which did not stop the shutdown from happening. #news #video #NowThisNews #shutdown
