WASHINGTON, October 3. (Itar-Tass) – President Barack Obama once again warned the Republicans in Congress that he will not negotiate financing the government and raising the debt ceiling. "There will be no negotiation over this," Obama said in a speech at Rockville, Maryland, addressing employees of a local enterprise. "The American people are not pawns in some political game." He added that republicans cannot demand ransom to allow the government to function and to do their jobs.
Previously Obama administration and Republican leaders in Congress have failed to agree on the issue of government funding, House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner after the meeting at the White House.
On October 1, 2013, the United States federal government entered a shutdown. This happened due to the cessation of budget financing in connection with the start of a new fiscal year. The debate on the budget between the U.S. administration and Congress has stalled - largely because of differences in principle on a new system of healthcare in the country - the so-called Obamacare programme.
The crisis has already affected international markets as oil prices are decreasing.
