Budget Battle
From left, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich, and Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, tell reporters that House Republicans' fight against the Affordable Care Act is tantamount to a war against women, Monday, Sept. 30, 2013, during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington. The Senate has the next move on must-do legislation required to keep the government open, and the Democratic-led chamber is expected to reject the latest effort from House Republicans to use a normally routine measure to attack President Barack Obama's signature health care law.
