Last night a partial government shutdown went into effect over the dispute over President Obama's healthcare law. Over 800,000 people are temporarily out of work. All non-essential federal programs and services are on hold. It's not a laughing matter...well, except for these five tweets.
Someone please explain to me the government shutdown, its causes, and effects. In 140 characters or less.

Before the government #shutdown, I hope someone remembers to water Orrin Hatch.

Does the #governmentshutdown mean the guy who paints Boehner's skin orange is out of work? Because that's not cool! Not cool at all!
