Washington Post: The Fix


epa03888193 The US Capitol building is seen reflected in the Capitol Reflection Pool after sunset in Washington DC, USA, 28 September 2013. As a possible government shutdown looms ahead, the House is expected to vote on two amendments to a Senate-passed continuing resolution to keep the government open and stop as much of the Affordable Care Act, or 'Obamacare', as possible. The two amendments will delay Obamacare by one year and repeal a medical device tax. EPA/MICHAEL REYNOLDS
