A member of the U.S. House of Representatives walks down the steps from the House Chamber as he exits the U.S. Capitol after the Republican-led House again voted to link funding for the U.S. government to include a delay of "Obamacare" in Washington, September 30, 2013. The U.S. government was on the edge of a major shutdown as Congress remained in partisan deadlock on Monday over Republican efforts to halt to President Barack Obama's healthcare reforms using a temporary spending bill.
