While we're all freaking out over the next president, we've forgotten how incompetent our current elected officials are. Congress has five days before a government shutdown, but it's looking unlikely they'll be able compromise in time. Democrats want money for Flint, Republicans want it in a separate bill. Democrats think that's unfair because Louisiana is receiving disaster funding with the proposed budget. Tell us what you think and Vote!

Edit: The House reached a deal to fund relief for Flint, making it likely that Congress will pass a funding bill.
