Government Shutdown Looms as Democrats & Republicans Try to Work Out a Deal

If the Democrats and Republicans can't come to terms and agree on how the U.S. Should pay its bills, the Federal government will shut down on Oct 1.
WASHINGTON - If the Democrats and Republicans can't come to terms and agree on how the U.S. Should pay its bills, the Federal government will shut down on Oct 1.

Some Republicans insist on defunding Obamacare as part of any deal. However, President Barack Obama says it's simply rolling back his health care overhaul is not going to happen.

Aides to the president say he'll beef up his defense of Obamacare all week, starting Tuesday. He will be holding an event with Bill Clinton that will keep up the pressure on shutdown supporters.

If there is a government shutdown it would have widespread impacts. National parks, museums, federal offices, visa and passport services would close across the country.

The shutdown will not come cheap. The last government shutdown cost the taxpayers nearly $1.5 billion.
