(L-R) U.S. Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) hold a news conference after bipartisan passage of stopgap budget and debt legislation at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, October 16, 2013. The U.S. Senate approved a deal on Wednesday to end a political crisis that partially shut down the federal government and brought the world's biggest economy to the edge of a debt default that could have threatened financial calamity.
