Republicans to try again to reopen some of the government
WASHINGTON (AP) - House Republicans say they'll try again today to propose a piecemeal approach to reopening the federal government.
Votes are on tap for restoring funds for veterans and paying members of the National Guard and Reserves.
But Democrats say they're only interested in completely reopening the government by passing an emergency spending bill.
Worries are increasing that the impasse that caused the partial government shutdown could go on for weeks and get tangled in the imminent debate over increasing the limit of the country's borrowing authority.
A meeting at the White House yesterday produced no progress and both sides were still finger-pointing after the meeting.
