Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, walks to the chamber as lawmakers vote to pay federal workers who have been furloughed during the government shutdown, at the Capitol in Washington, Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013. The Republican-controlled House and the Democrat-controlled Senate remain at an impasse, neither side backing down, since House GOP conservatives linked the funding bill to President Obama's signature health care law. The shutdown has idled 800,000 federal workers and curbed services around the country. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
