And another day Congress didn't do it's job and gets payed for it. Is there any other job where you can be more than two months late in the fulfillment of duties and not be fired? Shutting them down sounds more and more attractive the longer this continues. And you can be sure next year's spending bill will benefit corporate and military interests far more than the whole of society or the common man (or woman). Congress is able to work quite well together, however, when it comes to welfare for corporate donors and funding never ending wars.
