The government shut down on Tuesday, and it doesn’t look like it is going to reopen anytime soon.

The first federal shutdown in 17 years began with 800,000 federal employees furloughed and Senate Democrats rejecting a House Republican bill to set up a formal conference committee on a government funding bill.

It closed with the House rejecting a trio of GOP measures offered to reopen national parks and fund the Department of Veterans Affairs and the District of Columbia’s government.
