All you need to know about that COVID relief bill, plus U.S government shutown averted

Important to remember: At the same time that the government in America is trying to hash out a COVID relief bill, the same government is also trying to hash out a government spending bill. Failure to do one results in millions on the brink of final collapse, whilst, failure to do both likely will result in significant problems for the United States ahead.

Facing the idea that a government shutdown could go on for months, Senators, are concerned that the blowback from voters and constituents could potentially be career-ending.

Good news for those looking for time off, bad news, for those looking to hopefully go back to work tomorrow. As The Huffington Post  warns,  the government appears that it will be shut down for a while -- as negotiations between Democrats; Republicans, and the White House seem to be anything but successful. As pictured, Clune Arena at the Airforce Academy in Colorado Springs was closed and empty as the shutdown commenced.
