Senate Democrats and Republicans Address the Media

U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) (L), U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) (2ndL) and U.S. Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI) (3rd) and other house members speak to the media during a news conference on Capitol Hill, October 1, 2013 in Washington DC. Senate Democrats rejected negotiating with the House on government funding, leaving no clear path for ending the federal shutdown that began at midnight.
