BRAD MERRIMAN – JOURNALIST – TACD NEWS – As of 12:01 eastern time, the federal government has shutdown. This will likely mean many government employees may not see a pay check in the coming weeks.. Many federal parks and monuments may shutdown as well. The 11th hour attempt to stave off the shutdown, failed when House Republicans Leaders turned down yet another attempt from members of their own party, to put an end to the stale mate. Republican leaders are still refusing to even entertain any budget ideas, unless the ideas include delaying Obamacare, even at the expense of not paying its own constituency. The Republican leaders who voted down the deal, will still be paid, as will President Obama.
