I`m sorry, I`ve read this article twice in a row and still don`t understand it...how in the hell can the government of the most powerful country in the World just shut down?!

It sounds very strange to me, I don`t think I ever heard of something like this...
No, not that--it's politics as usual and it's those who can least afford to bear the consequences who will have to deal with it.

Not sure if you can get this but here's a link with some explanations of the process.
