The federal government has been shut down for approximately 18 hours due to politicians in Washington inability to come to an agreement on how to fund the government.

As the hours rack up it looks as if there will be a day two and likely more days of shut down programs and furloughed government employees.

President Barack Obama’s health care law, The Affordable Care Act, is at the center of the dispute.
