Everything's on table to avoid shutdown
As members of Congress return to Washington Monday to make a last-minute effort to keep the federal government running, one Republican senator says all options are being considered to stave off a government shutdown.
"In the Senate, everything's on the table," Sen. Scott Brown, R-Massachusetts, said this morning on CNN's American Morning. "Not only me, but my colleagues, we're ready to sit down and hammer it out so we can keep the country funded and tackle the other issues we have."
Brown said the current budget situation is providing an opening for politicians to confront the country's fiscal shortfalls.
