Government shutdown
See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Mark Udall Voted "Yes" During the shutdown in October 2013, the Senate rejected, down party lines, every House-originated bill that stripped the budget of funding for the Affordable Care Act. A deal was reached late on October 16, 2013, just hours before the debt ceiling deadline. The bill to reopen the government, H.R. 2775, lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funds the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by Senate Democrats was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies.[2] The final vote on H.R. 2775 was 81-18, with all 18 votes against the bill from Republican members. Mark Udall voted with the Democratic Party for the bill.[3]
