Government shutdown impacts country
US Park Service workers fence off the closed Lincoln Monument in Washington, DC, October 1, 2013 , as the first US Federal government shutdown since 1995 begins. The Lincoln Memorial and many other non-essential government run institutions are on a shut-down list. The National Mall and all monuments and large sections of the government closed due to government shut down after Congress failed to agree on spending. AFP PHOTO / Paul J.
