Budget Battle-6

In this Sunday, Oct. 6, 2013, photo provided by CBS News U.S. Treasury Jacob Lew speaks on CBS's "Face the Nation" in Washington. Lew said Congress needs to quickly pass legislation re-opening the government and also a measure boosting the nation's $16.7 trillion debt limit. Lew said President Barack Obama has not changed his opposition to tying these measures to Republican demands on health care and spending cuts. "What we've seen is ... 'Unless I get my way, you know, that we'll bring these terrible consequences of shutdown or default,' " Lew said Sunday. "Those kinds of threats have to stop." (AP Photo/CBS News, Chris Usher)
