Government shutdown looming, Congress goes on vacation
WASHINGTON- Congress began its five-week vacation before reaching a deal on spending that would keep the government from shutting down.
Since lawmakers failed to compromise, they will now have from September 9 until October 1 to figure out what is next.
Two bills were rejected this week.
If Congress fails to reach a deal, the government has the possibility of shutting down on October 1.
Currently, Congress’ approval rating from Americans is at 17 percent.
