A budget showdown is on the horizon which threatens to shut down the federal  government  if  a  compromise  can't  be  reached. Congressman  Steve  Scalise  says the American people are  tired  of watching Washington spend more  and  more  while  they  have  to cut back.  US Senator Mary Landrieu says the democrats are ready and willing to make  cuts  but she says the republicans only want to cut the budget in areas that suit their agenda.
