Budget Battle -6

Lawmakers come and go from the House of Representatives during a vote for back pay for government workers who have been furloughed during the government shutdown, at the Capitol in Washington, Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013. With the partial shutdown entering its fifth day, the GOP-run House passed a bill Saturday that would make sure the furloughed workers get paid for not working. The 407-0 vote in the House was uniquely bipartisan, even as lawmakers continued their partisan rhetoric. The Senate is expected to OK it, too. Still, there has been no sign of progress towards ending an impasse that has idled 800,000 federal workers and curbed services around the country. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
