Source: Bloomberg

The U.S. House voted to keep the government funded until Dec. 20 and avoid a shutdown when current spending authority runs out after midnight Thursday.

4. I was wondering the same thing

Not just Trump. Could Moscow Mitch simply not pass it in the Senate. Defund the House to shut it down?

6. Congress cannot be defunded. The appropriations cover executive branch agencies.

Congress gets paid regardless.

5. No. Shutdowns only impact executive branch agencies and some parts of the judiciary.

Congress never shuts down. As for a veto, an override vote with two-thirds vote in each Chamber can overcome the veto.

2. And then Senate will wish everyone a happy holidays

while issuing stop work orders to contractors who won't get paid during the shutdown, and will never get back pay.

3. Things could get crazy as the impeachment vote nears, the primary campaigns heat up, and

the budget bills come due in December.
