WASHINGTON (AP) - There are suggestions from leaders in both parties that the partial government shutdown could last for weeks.

It went into effect Tuesday, as each side blamed the other for causing it.

President Barack Obama said Republicans brought about the shutdown as part of an "ideological crusade" to wipe out his health care law. House Speaker John Boehner (BAY'-nur), writing in USA Today, says Democrats "slammed the door on reopening the government" by refusing to negotiate.
