Budget Battle-6

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, waves at a rally at the World War II Memorial on the National Mall in Washington Sunday, Oct. 13, 2013. Leaders in the U.S. Senate have taken the helm in the search for a deal to end the partial government shutdown and avert a federal default. The rally was organized to protest the closure of the Memorial, subsequent to the shutdown, and lack of access to it by World War II veterans, who traveled there on Honor Flight visits. To Lee's right is tea party activists and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon)
