The spending budget for Calander Year 2014 wasn't passed due to a rider placed on it by Sen. Cruize (R) of Texas that the Democrats refused to vote for. So until they can stop being childish and actually come together to do their jobs (I.E. legislate for the country) the US government has no money to spend and has thus gone on haitus.
tl;dr The US government be trippin balls and some retarded ass **** is going down in the capital.

close but i would point out that the rider was not placed on by Ted Cruz but by the House Republicans who basically passed a budget that did not include Obamacare in it. Cruz obviously voted in favor of this but the Senate democrats shot the whole budget down, sent one back with Obamacare and the House shot that down.

Basically government buildings are closed and paycheck for people with government jobs are delayed, it's not really a big deal. They are doing it because congress couldn't agree on a budget plan.

And it's just the "nonessential" Federal government functions. Honestly not nearly as big a deal as people are making it out to be.
