Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, returns to his Capitol Hill office after the Senate once again rejected the House version of the government funding bill, Monday night, Sept. 30, 2013, in Washington. The Republican-controlled House and the Democrat-controlled Senate are at an impasse as Congress continues to struggle over how to prevent a possible shutdown of the federal government when it runs out of money. President Barack Obama ramped up pressure on Republicans Monday to avoid a post-midnight government shutdown, saying that failure to pass a short-term spending measure to keep agencies operating would "throw a wrench into the gears" of a recovering economy.
