Americans Brace for Government Shutdown Oct. 1

Americans are bracing for a partial shutdown of the national government that looks increasingly likely to begin Tuesday, as a politically-divided Congress remains unable to agree on a formula to extend federal spending authority.  Absent a last-minute deal, non-essential government services will halt and hundreds of thousands of federal workers will be idled.

Tempers flared late Saturday in House of Representatives before the Republican-controlled chamber approved a spending bill.
