List of Government Shutdowns

In United States politics, “government shutdowns” occur whenever Congress fails to pass or the president of the United States refuses to sign or vetoes legislation funding the operation of some or all government agencies. Under the Antideficiency Act of 1982, the federal government must “shut down” the affected agencies by both furloughing non-essential personnel and curtailing agency activities and services that do not directly relate to national security.

Key Takeaways

  • Government shutdowns happen when legislation to allocate money needed for the operation of the government agencies fails to be enacted.
  • By law, most government agencies must furlough their non-essential personnel and stop or limit their activities during a government shutdown.
  • While few last very long, all government shutdowns result in increased costs of government and inconvenience for many citizens. 

While most government shutdowns are of relatively short duration, they all result in the disruption to government services and increased costs

Government Grant Scams | FTC Consumer Information

“Because you pay your income taxes on time, you have been awarded a free $12,500 government grant! To get your grant, simply give us your checking account information, and we will direct-deposit the grant into your bank account!”

Sometimes, it’s an ad that claims you will qualify to receive a “free grant” to pay for education costs, home repairs, home business expenses, or unpaid bills. Other times, it’s a phone call supposedly from a “government” agency or some other organization with an official sounding name. In either case, the claim is the same: your application for a grant is guaranteed to be accepted, and you’ll never have to pay the money back.

But the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation’s consumer protection agency, says that “money for nothing” grant offers usually are scams, whether you see them in your local paper or a national magazine, or hear about them on

NSA Spying | Electronic Frontier Foundation

 The US government, with assistance from major telecommunications carriers including AT&T, has engaged in massive, illegal dragnet surveillance of the domestic communications and communications records of millions of ordinary Americans since at least 2001. Since this was first reported on by the press and discovered by the public in late 2005, EFF has been at the forefront of the effort to stop it and bring government surveillance programs back within the law and the Constitution.

History of NSA Spying Information since 2005 (See EFF’s full timeline of events here)

News reports in December 2005 first revealed that the National Security Agency (NSA) has been intercepting Americans’ phone calls and Internet communications. Those news reports, combined with a USA Today story in May 2006 and the statements of several members of Congress, revealed that the NSA is also receiving wholesale copies of American’s telephone and other communications records. All of
