At a construction company in Rockville, Md., Obama blasted the “reckless Republican shutdown in Washington,” and called on Congress to fix it by passing a budget “with no partisan strings attached.”
He warned that the economic impact will get “worse” the longer it drags on, and accused House Speaker John Boehner of catering to “extremists” by not bringing a straight budget bill to the floor.
