Central Kentucky Congressman Andy Barr continues to link the stalemate over the federal budget with a decision about this Thursday’s deadline over raising the nation’s debt limit. The Fayette County Republican spoke on the House floor Saturday…

This is Day 14 of the partial government shutdown, which was triggered by differences between Republicans and Democrats over funding of the Affordable Care Act. The GOP-controlled House has not included money for the ACA in any of its resolutions appropriating money for federal operations. Democrats who have a majority in the Senate have declined to consider any of those measures until they do fund the health care law.
