Plus: More than 80 Percent of Americans feel "no personal impact" from shutdown
Drama in the wee hours.
Obstructing to victory.
But why are Democrats smiling?
Civility strikes again.
On to the Senate
House Republicans say President Barack Obama is not showing leadership on the budget. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan says that members of his part have shown what they believe 'a responsible path' to a balanced budget looks like.
House Speaker John Boehner says that President Barack Obama's recent outreach to congressional Republicans is a "hopeful sign" that progress could be made in breaking the recent impasse over how to reduce the federal deficit.
Rep. John Boehner says the goal is spending cuts, not a government shutdown. The House Speaker urged the Senate to pass a GOP measure that funds the government and eases some budget cuts, but leaves most.
