Government shutdown: ‘No resolution in sight’

It has been 23 hours since the federal government shut down. Hundreds of thousands of government workers were furloughed and did not earn a paycheck Tuesday.

The government shut down Tuesday morning after Washington politicians could not come to an agreement on the budget. The center of the controversy is President Barack Obama’s Affordable Healthcare Act.
