Senate Republicans Launch the #SchumerShutdown Clock

Senate Republicans have launched the #SchumerShutdown clock, which provides Americans a live look at how long the United States government has been closed because of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) inability to compromise with Senate Republicans on funding the government.

The clock, which was tweeted out shortly after the government shut down on Friday shows a picture of Schumer shaking his finger and has a live clock showing the length of time the government has been closed.

The #SchumerShutdown Clock:

The United States government officially shut down at midnight on Friday after Democrats in the United States Senate failed to vote for a continuing resolution at the behest of Schumer.

Senate Democrats refused to support the continuing resolution to fund the government because it did not deal with the expiring Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which does not expire until March.

Schumer had supported a continuing resolution that would have extended funding the government for only for a few days, rather than a month.

At publishing time, the United States government remains shut down with no end in sight, as Democrats refuse to negotiate until Republicans include DACA in a government funding bill.
