FILE - In this Sept. 30, 2013 file photo, President Barack Obama speaks in the Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House in Washington. It's a political perfect storm: The pairing of a government shutdown with the rollout of the new health care law illustrates all sorts of partisan and cultural tensions in America. Big government vs. small. The Republican Party's identity crisis. Declining trust in government. And plenty more. A chunky-text look at underlying issues roiling the nation.
