Shutdown drags on: 'It's taken far too long'

Washington (CNN) - Thirteen days into a partial government shutdown, four days before the U.S. government bumps up against its projected borrowing limit, and there was little sign of movement Sunday toward resolving the latest budget impasse.

The Senate reconvened Sunday afternoon, with Majority Leader Harry Reid saying he would do "everything I can throughout the day" to reach some sort of bargain with the chamber's Republican minority.

    This is why gerrymandering is a bad thing, he will still keep his job, the only threat of losing his job is in a primary challenge, which is decided by the superpacs. Tired of the systems being perverted for control by big money

    The republicans in congress went home during the weekend leaving the democrats behind rather then stick around and resolve their manufactured crises! This reflects how arrogant republicans are and unsympathetic they are to hundreds of thousands furloughed!

    Boehner is scared to put anything to a bipartisan vote as he is scared of his tea party! What a COWARD!!!

    McCain said we need to be more respectful to one another, then said we should get Joe Biden out of the witness protection program, hypocracy is truly lost on this man
