Normally packed with visitors and tourists, the U.S. Capitol Rotunda is empty as the government shutdown enters a second week, Monday, Oct. 7, 2013, in Washington. The government partially shut down last week amid Washington gridlock and faces a make-or-break deadline later this month about the nation's borrowing power. Republicans have refused to budge without concessions on Democrats' health care law. Democrats have resisted GOP efforts to dismantle that health care law. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
