Oct 17, 2013 — After two weeks of not working, furloughed employees are expected to be back at the job Thursday. But that might not be that simple.

Oct 16, 2013 — With hours left before the country tops its borrowing authority, the Senate-crafted, bipartisan measure moves to the chaotic lower chamber. Party leaders are hoping to pass it with a coalition of votes from Democrats and Republicans.

Comments |
Oct 11, 2013 — With the partial government shutdown in its 11th day, there's much speculation about a possible break in negotiations between the White House and Republicans. But despite the noise, very little seems firm.

Comments |

Comments |
Oct 1, 2013 — Congress went down to the wire Monday night but still failed to compromise on a spending bill, resulting in a partial government shutdown.
Comments |
