The As this article is written the U.S. government has been shut down by a small minority of conservative Representatives
in the House.
They are threatening to cause
the U.S. to default on its debt if Democrats don’t agree to defund or delay the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, Obamacare), and make deep cuts to other entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare, all the while refusing to raise revenue, or increase taxes on the wealthiest Americans.
