SHOTLIST:POOL - AP CLIENTS ONLYRockville, Maryland - October 3, 20131. SOUNDBITE (English) President Barack Obama, (D) United States (Transcript Below)"the only thing that is keeping the government shutdown, the only thing preventing people from going back to work, and basic research starting back up, and farmers and small businesses getting their loans, the only thing that is preventing all of that from happening right now, today, in the next five minutes, is that Speaker John Boehner won't even let the bill get a yes or no vote because he doesn't want to anger the extremists in his party. That's all. That's what this whole thing is about and we've heard a lot from congressional republicans in the last few days saying they don't want this shutdown. Well there is a simple way to prove it. Send the bill to the floor let everybody vote, it will pass, send me the bill I will sign it, the shutdown will be over and we can get back to the business of governing and helping the american people."VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:President Barack Obama says House Speaker John Boehner is the only thing standing in the way of reopening the federal government.Obama is speaking at a small business just outside of Washington on the third day of the shutdown.
