Government shutdown: Get up to speed in 20 questions

(CNN) - Let's start with the obvious question: Will the government shut down this week? Most likely.

On that, Republicans and Democrats agree. It's everything else that has them bickering and blaming. And unless they strike a deal on a spending bill Monday, the government will begin closing shop at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday.

    Obamacare keeps rolling, despite Republicans shutting down the government with their insane hostage-taking demands.

    Can't stop it, Republicans. You'll just have to wait until you have a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate and the White House. At the rate you're going, though, I don't think that alignment will ever happen.
