Missouri Congressman Russ Carnahan says the stalemate in Washington over the budget has more to do with ideology than numbers.
A government shutdown will begin at midnight if Congress is not able to reach an agreement on the remainder this year's budget.
Carnahan says Republicans are targeting Planned Parenthood, the EPA, and public broadcasting as part of their proposed cuts.
"Certainly people are entitled to their own opinions about that,” Carnahan said. “But this is not the way to do it."
