The government shut down tonight at midnight because Republicans and Democrats could not agree on a spending bill.

House Republicans passed a spending bill that does not include funding for the Affordable Care Act. Democrats in the Senate wanted a "clean" continuing resolution that included no policy changes.

Due to the shutdown, the government will have no authority to spend taxpayer money on non-essential services.

Museums and national parks would close. More essential services such as the post office would remain open.
