US Government Shutdown 2019: Federal Employee didn’t get their Last 2 Paycheck
US government shutdown continues as the govt. is not able to give any solution on this. This shutdown started on December 22, 2018 and it is still in motion. This shut down has made govt. to stop paycheck of thousands of federal employees. Their 2 paychecks have been called off by the govt. and now it is affecting everyone. The govt. is into finding the solution so badly but there is not success. In this article we will first learn more about what actually a shutdown is then will talk in brief about it.
What is a Government Shutdown?
There are many federal agencies those relies on the financial plans and budget bills made by the congress. All the congressmen or senates are supposed to sign these bill and the president too that will run the next fiscal year. If Congress is not able to 12 appropriation bill to the govt. or they do not get more than 60 vote to give their bill a motion it affects different federal departments and initiate the shutdown.
In a “shutdown,” federal agencies must discontinue all non-essential discretionary functions until new funding legislation is passed and signed into law. Essential services continue to function, as do mandatory spending programs.
How Shutdown is affecting?
Each federal office/ agency develops their own plan of shutdown.
Although many programs are exempt, the public is still likely to feel the impact of a shutdown in a number of ways. For example, in a full shutdown:
Social Security and Medicare: Checks are sent out, but benefit verification as well as the issuance of cards would cease. While unlikely to happen again, in 1996 more than 10,000 Medicare applicants were temporarily turned away every day of the shutdown.
Environmental and Food Inspection: In 2013, the Environmental Protection Agency halted site inspections to 1,200 different sites that included hazardous waste, drinking water, and chemical facilities. The Food and Drug Administration delayed almost 900 inspections.
National Parks: During the 2013 shutdown, the National Park Service turned away millions of visitors to more than 400 parks, national monuments, and other sites. The National Park Service estimated that the shutdown led to more than half a billion dollars in lost visitor spending nationwide. Many parks remained open during the one-day shutdown in 2018.
Health and Human Services: The National Institutes of Health would be prevented from admitting new patients or processing grant applications. In 2013, states were forced to front the money for formula grant programs such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (cash welfare).
Internal Revenue Service (IRS): In the event of a shutdown, the IRS, which verifies income and Social Security numbers, would again not be able to perform this service. In 2013, a backlog of 1.2 million such requests potentially delayed mortgage and other loan approvals. Billions of dollars of tax refunds were also delayed.
The Failure to Find Resolution:
The failure to find a resolution comes as 800,000 federal workers already stretched for cash start to miss a second paycheck on Friday and some government services suffer. Neither the president nor Democratic leaders have shown any willingness to back down even in the 34th day of the partial shutdown. Some bipartisan senators mounted calls for a bill to fund the government for three weeks while they find a larger immigration agreement.
