Twitter users have been quick to blame the GOP for the second US government shutdown this year.

US federal agencies had to cease their operations after Congress failed to pass a bipartisan budget deal. This is the second time within three weeks that US government agencies had to put their work on hold as a result of the disagreement over the budget deal. On January 18, the funding proposal to avert a government shutdown failed in the Senate.

Twitter users have rushed to comment on the second US government shutdown, with many commenting on a move by Republican Senator Rand Paul, who demanded a vote on an amendment to the spending bill that would keep caps on federal spending, which is expected to rise by a total of $300 billion over two years.
