CNN's Dana Bash takes a look at where Congressional Republicans go now that the shutdown has ended.
(CNN) - Shortly after Republican leaders of the House of Representatives canceled plans for a Tuesday night vote, the two top figures in the Senate rebooted their own talks aimed at ending the U.S. budget standoff.
Spokesmen for Democratic Sen. Harry Reid and GOP Sen. Mitch McConnell - their chamber's majority leader and minority leader, respectively - said Tuesday night that they restarted negotiations aimed at creating legislation that would fully reopen the government and raise the nation's debt ceiling.FULL STORY

Washington (CNN) - Rep. Devin Nunes, R-California, says a House bill funding the federal government and raising the debt limit with minor changes to the national health care law is imminent.
Nunes told CNN Chief Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash Tuesday afternoon that a bill will be seen "within an hour or two," with a vote sometime Tuesday night. The measure, Nunes said, will be very similar to the one House Speaker John Boehner unveiled to the House GOP caucus earlier in the day.
Washington (CNN) - Speaker John Boehner and other top House GOP leaders are meeting Monday afternoon to discuss their options and consider preparing their own bill to raise the nation's debt ceiling.
One senior House Republican leadership aide tells CNN that if negotiations don't speed up in the Senate and something doesn't get moving soon, it could be difficult to reach a deal before Thursday's debt ceiling deadline because of possible time-consuming procedural hurdles in the Senate.
Washington (CNN) - House Republicans are slamming the White House for not negotiating with them. House Speaker John Boehner told GOP rank-and-file that President Barack Obama was rejecting the House GOP offer and instead working with Senators from both parties to end the shutdown and raise the debt ceiling.
"I'm disappointed that the President has rejected the offer that we put on the table," said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. "I know that he's trying to see which Republican Senator he can pick off in the Senate. I hope that the Senate Republicans stand strong so we can speak with one voice."
Washington (CNN) - House Speaker John Boehner has a day or two max to strike a debt ceiling and government funding deal before some of his Republican Senate colleagues move more aggressively on their own ideas, several impatient GOP Senators have told CNN.
The Senators say they are willing to give Boehner a bit more time, about 24 to 48 hours, to come to an agreement with the White House to raise the debt ceiling and reopen the government.
Washington (CNN) - An offer Friday by House Republicans to President Barack Obama would temporarily increase the debt ceiling without reopening the government right away, GOP sources told CNN's Deirdre Walsh.
The White House said in response that Obama "has some concerns" with the plan because it would not end the shutdown that was in its 11th day.FULL STORY

Washington (CNN) –- President Barack Obama acknowledged that the Republican proposal on a six week debt ceiling increase was a good thing in an hour-and-a-half meeting with House Republican leadership Thursday night, according to a Democratic source familiar with the gathering.
The meeting overall was an amicable one, featuring some of the first real dialogue between the two sides in recent weeks. The point of contention remains on Obama’s demand to reopen the government, for which Republicans still want concessions on spending, the source said.

Washington (CNN) – Several senior Republican senators from across the ideological spectrum expressed frustration Thursday that the latest proposal from House GOP leaders for a short-term hike in the debt ceiling didn't also include a plan to reopen the government.
"We need to deal with both the continuing resolution and the debt ceiling in a responsible sort of way," said Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Senate Republican leader. "Obviously just doing part of it doesn't solve the whole problem and we need to solve the whole problem."
