Rep. Tim Griffin (R-AR), holding a football to illustrate that he believes Democrats are "running out the clock", joins members of the House Republican caucus on the steps of the U.S. Senate to protest the Senate not being in session today to work on legislation to avert a government shutdown September 29, 2013 in Washington, DC. The House of Representatives passed a continuing resolution with language to defund U.S. President Barack Obama's national health care plan yesterday, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has indicated the U.S. Senate will not consider the legislation as passed by the House.
