Speaker of the House John BoehnerWashington --September 25, 201314. Various of US HouseVOICEOVER SCRIPT:For 21 hours, Texas Senator Ted Cruz controlled the senate floor--aiming to delay action on a bill that would avoid a government shutdown.The key issue--money for President Obama's health care law.The House bill would defund the lawSenate Majority Leader Harry Reid is angling to eliminate that provisionThat raises the prospect of a government shutdown monday night if the House and Senate can't agree on a spending bill:One analyst puts the chances of that at 70 percent:SOT: Stan Collender, senior partner Qorvis Communications If both sides were just arguing about numbers about the budget there's a compromisable number. But when one side says no Obamacare and the other side says $200 million, for example, what's in between those 2?Any shutdown wouldn't impact the entire government.Social Security checks would still go out.The TSA would still man security checkpointsMilitary personnel would stay at their postsThe postal service would keep delivering the mail.And even the about-to-open insurance exchanges created by the health care law would stay open.But museums would close. So would passport offices.SOT: Thomas Mann Brookings InstitutionThere are some conservative activists who want to shut down, who want to show they're prepared to take tough action. They think that will strengthen their case. SOT: Stan Collenderthe amusement of the typical voter with the spectacle of the government shutting down quickly changes to frustration when they cant get anyone on the phone at a government agency they do business with or need to get some answers from.(:11)The senate will spend several days on its bill before sending the House a measure that includes money for the health care law--With time running down, GOP leaders leaders will then have to decide whether to accept it, propose changes, or reject it and allow the first government shutdown since 1996.jb the ap capitol hill
