The Government Shutdown and Reopening.
Washington plunged into a new political crisis, as the federal government shutdown for three days after Republicans failed to get the votes for a federal spending plan. The Senate voted today to reopen the government for three weeks, after leaders reached a deal to work on DACA. On the agenda of the polarized debates are a bill to solve the DACA crisis, health care for millions of children, funding for disaster relief, and military spending.
