Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, arrives at the Capitol in Washington, Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013. The Republican-controlled House and the Democrat-controlled Senate are at an impasse, neither side backing down after House GOP conservatives linked the funding bill to obstructing President Obama's signature health care law. There has been no sign of progress toward ending the government shutdown that has idled 800,000 federal workers and curbed services around the country. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
