The Latest On Ending The Impasse In Washington

With a majority of Americans blaming Republicans for the shutdown, lawmakers feel new urgency to come to a resolution. The latest on the budget impasse in Washington.

Today marks the 14th day of a partial government shutdown. The top Democratic and Republican Senate leaders spoke over the weekend, but no resolution was reached that could fully re-open the federal government and raise the debt ceiling. Now we're just days away from Oct. 17, the date the Treasury Department said it would begin to run out of money to pay the nation's bills. World Bank and IMF leaders, in Washington for meetings, warned of potential calamity in global financial markets if American lawmakers cannot come to an agreement soon. The latest on prospects for ending the budget impasse.
