Boehner: It's an Emergency, Where's the Senate?

House Speaker John Boehner says the nation is facing a budget emergency and the Senate, like the House, should be in session to help avert a government shutdown.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Speaker John Boehner says the nation is facing a budget emergency and the Senate, like the House, should be in session to help avert a government shutdown.

The Ohio Republican on Monday castigated the Democratic-led chamber for taking Sunday off amid a partisan standoff over funding the government and the future of Obamacare. Republicans want President Barack Obama's signature law limited or delayed as part of any budget deal. Democrats, meanwhile, want a budget passed without any changes to the health care program. The Senate on Monday is expected to reject the House-passed measure containing the latest attack on "Obamacare" and send the measure back to the House.

If no agreement is reached, the government would begin shutting down at midnight.
