Drama Intensifies Over Government Funding and Debt Ceiling on Both Sides of Capitol

Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, center, and GOP leaders, speak to reporters after a closed-door strategy session at the Capitol in Washington, Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013. Pressure is building on fractious Republicans over legislation to prevent a partial government shutdown, as the Democratic-led Senate is expected to strip a tea party-backed plan to defund  the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as "Obamacare," from their bill. From left to right are House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
