Budget Battle-3

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., center, squeezes between Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., left, and Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., right, as they return to negotiations following a news conference just before midnight at the Capitol in Washington, Monday, Sept. 30, 2013. For the first time in nearly two decades, the federal government staggered into a partial shutdown Monday at midnight after congressional Republicans stubbornly demanded changes in the nation's health care law as the price for essential federal funding and President Barack Obama and Democrats adamantly refused.
