The United States is currently in a partial government shutdown, but this isn’t the first time. There have been 17 other government shutdowns – or spending gaps - since modern congressional budget...
ing processes began in 1976. They have always occurred in the fall and stemmed from disagreements about spending within Congress or between Congress and the President. Many (1977, 1984, 1995) have resulted because the temporary solutions of previous shutdowns could not be bridged to stable long term ones.
This poster was inspired by a recent blog post by Dylan Matthews of the Washington post: Here is every previous government shutdown, why they happened and how they ended.
