The ‘shutdown’ of the U.s. government lasts at least until this weekend. Both chambers of the U.s. Congress were Thursday, for a few minutes convened, but undertook no steps to the partial closure of the federal government to terminate.
The Senate and the House of Representatives did on the sixth day of the shutdown nothing for the funding to restore the approximately 20 percent of the government that is affected.
The shutdown is expected to reach at least the weekend to continue and possibly even in January.
The U.s. government is partially ‘locked’ now that the Congress and the White House could not reach agreement on a new state budget.
The negotiations on the new budget has already run a time slip. The American president Donald Trump wants billions of dollars to pave for the construction of the limes wall. That intention may not be to gain approval of the Democrats in Washington.
The result is that a large part of the federal government to ‘closed’. That means that officials are no longer officially can be paid because the government has no more money to spend. It comes to the 800,000 government employees.
If the ‘shutdown’ is over, they get their overdue wages. So far has the ‘shutdown’ have no great influence because of the holidays.
