Partisanship to Blame for Shutdown

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Though the government is in full operation, some experts are referring to last night's vote as, "kicking the can down the road."

"I would think, it probably hurts the job market more than the financial markets. And that would translate to some degree to Montana," says financial expert, Gary Buchanan.

The decision will lead to funding the federal government only through January 15th of next year; meaning the debt ceiling will again be an issue that may threaten another government shutdown.
