Politico - Washington wakes to shutdown
From the article: “Washington awoke Tuesday in a state of disbelief and deep political uncertainty, with the federal government closed for the first time since “Mr. Holland’s Opus” was in theaters and Netscape was a popular Internet browser.
The last round of legislative clashes that precipitated the shutdown ended after midnight, when the GOP-held House named members of a conference committee to negotiate a spending bill with the Senate. But the Democratic Senate has consistently said it will not negotiate changes to the Affordable Care Act — the central Republican demand — and adjourned earlier in the evening.”
