The clock is ticking on Capitol Hill, as lawmakers struggle to come up with an agreement on a spending plan.
The sticking point remains the same—continuing funding for President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
"I am currently undergoing shutdown fatigue," Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor said. "We are tired of the drama. We are tired, honestly, the other chamber embarrassing the Congress and doing these dramatics"
The blame game between chambers and parties is in full effect. The Republican-led House voted to keep the government running, only if all money for the Affordable Care Act is eliminated.
Democrats, who lead the Senate, are expected to vote to restore funding for President Obama's health care plan, which would send the plan back to the House.
"The American people don't want the president's health care bill and they don't want the government to shut down," House Majority Leader John Boehner said."Republicans are listening. We passed a bill last week that would do just what the American people have asked. It's time for the Senate to listen and pass the bill we sent over there."
According to a new CBS News/New York Times poll, if the government does shut down, Republicans may take more of the blame.
Forty-four percent of Americans said they'd blame the GOP, while 35 percent said they'd put the blame on President Obama and his democratic colleagues.
"Now Republicans continue to hold the full faith and credit of the United States government hostage to their radical agenda," Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said.
The poll also found that 16 percent of Americans would blame both Republicans and Democrats equally.
If Congress can't resolve their differences by midnight on Monday, the U.S. Government will partially shut down on Oct. 1. Some lawmakers are already looking ahead to next month's battle over raising the debt ceiling.
