Within minutes, the White House vowed President Obama would veto the plan, resulting in the federal government technically running out of money Monday night and forcing a partial shutdown.

Failure to pass a short-term funding bill – also known as continuing resolution -- would mean the first partial government shutdown in almost 20 years.

Question and answers about government shutdown


Q: Has the government been shut down in the past?

A: Yes. The last one lasted 21 days from Dec. 15, 1995, to Jan. 6, 1996, according to a report by the Congressional Research Service. It came soon after a five-day shutdown that lasted from Nov. 13-19, 1995. A disagreement over tax cuts between then-President Bill Clinton and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., precipitated those shutdowns.

Since 1976, there have been 17 shutdowns, though before the 1980s the government continued operating at reduced levels without furloughing workers.

But in the last major pair of shutdowns, from November 1995 to January 1996, the stock market actually rose.

So almost 20 years makes sense.

Good question though.
