After Congress failed to reach a spending agreement Monday night, the United States government is now partially shut down -- meaning about 800,000 federal workers will go without pay and non-essential federal programs like national parks and museums will be shuttered.

The American public has taken to social media to vent their outrage, tagging tweets #DearCongress to give politicians an earful:

i am embarrassed to be an American today. Putting people's lively hoods ahead of your egos is disgusting. Don't u get it yet.

In Florida, the shutdown has not only laid off locally-based federal workers, but closed tourism hotspots like Everglades National Park. As for real estate, delays in mortgages are expected as the IRS may not be able to verify tax information in time.

Tuesday Obama called out House Republicans in particular, saying "They've shut down the government over an ideological crusade to deny affordable health care to millions of Americans."

Here are the Twitter handles of the 17 House members from Florida who voted for the budget resolution that led to the shutdown -- all while keeping their three-figure congressional paychecks:
