All over all the media and news sites, politicians, journalists and civilians are sounding off on the outrage of the apparent government gridlock when debating the budget, and yet the U.S. Senate not only took Sunday off, they are not coming into session until 2 p.m. Monday afternoon, according to C-SPAN.
This action gives only 10 hours to fix and agree upon a budget and avoid a government shutdown of non-essential personnel.
The gridlock is formulated by the immovable Tea Party republicans who believe the Affordable Care Act or "Obamacare" is a direct violation of their core principles, particularly its belief against government intrusion, which they strongly insists the healthcare mandate is doing.
The House of Representatives, which is controlled by Republicans, have sent a bill, which defunds some key points of the ACA, however; although it is projected the Senate will kick it back, the Senate hasn’t done so, which is causing a pause in proceedings.
The Senate is scheduled to come in at 2 p.m. but the scrutiny that our Senators are obligated to continue the debate until an agreement is met is growing amid social media as the deadline fast approaches.
If the U.S. Senate and the House cannot reach an agreement, the federal government will not have funding to continue some operations of the Fed including the processing of HUD applications and national park employee pay. Essential aspects of the Federal Government will continue such as the U.S. Postal Service.
