Kentucky Governor Lashes out at Congress

Governor Steve Beshear says it's time for both sides to stop acting like children.
There's a lot talking going on in the nation's capitol, but there seems to be little negotiation.

House republicans are demanding anti-Obamacare provisions attached to any spending plan needed to end the shutdown. However, the White House says the President will not make concessions on a clean spending plan or debt ceiling increase.

Kentucky Democratic Governor Steve Beshear says it's time for both sides to stop acting like children.

"I'd say to them what I think every Kentuckian would say to them, and what every American would say to their Congressman or their Senator-- to quit acting like a bunch of nine-year-olds in the cafeteria with a food fight going on. Act like adults."

President Obama invited congressional leaders to the White House for a meeting this afternoon.

The White House says this meeting will include a briefing on the disaster caused by the shutdown.
