    Re: American Goverment

    It's basically when your government can't sort out it's financial budget and thus because they don't have the funds directed they have to shutdown all "non essential" services

    From Wikipedia :

    Congress would force a government shutdown on 8 April, 2011 if their plan to reduce the U.S. federal budget deficit is not resolved[1]. This could leave 800,000 furloughed workers without a job, out of 2 million civilian federal employees. [2][3] Congressional leaders will meet on April 7, 2011 to agree on budget cuts in an effort to stave off a government shutdown. But federal agencies are already beginning preparations for potential closures.[4]
    Things that won't be shutdown are things like Police, Firefighters, Air Traffic, Corrections, etc.
