much ended with them coming out and reiterating they haven't budged from their positions. they'll slug it out again today while the federal workers sit at home with no paycheck bearing the brunt of this stalemate. congression alg leaders left the white house once again blaming each other for this government shutdown. >> we're three playing these games. >> republicans are standing their ground, saying any new budget agreement must include changes to the affordable care act. >> all we're asking for here is a discussion and fairness for the american people under obama care. >> democrats say they'll negotiate but only after the house passes a temporary budget with no strings attached. president obama believes there are enough votes for it to pass. >> the only thing that's stopping it is john boehner right now has not been willing to say no to a faction of the republican party that arealing to burn the house down because of an obsession over my health care initiative. >> with neither side showing any sign of giving in, the estimated 800,000 federal employees now furloughed are bracing for what could be an extended period without pay.
>> my honey-do list guests longer. >> bob turner is spending time gardening instead of working at the faa. >> it's definitely not like being on vacation. >> his income helps support his wife and daughter's family. >> you don't know what's on hand, how to plan for it. you don't know what the impact's going to be. >> turner's been through this before. he was furloughed in the last government shutdown in 1995. now, we are seeing more signs that a deal to fund the government is going to be partnered with an agreement to raise the nation's borrowing capacity. the united states reaches its department limit on october 17th, and that could mean this budget showdown, government shutdown could last until then. >> thank you, susan. police say a blown tire caused a fiery crash in northern tennessee. it left at least eight people dead and 14 others injured. the bus was traveling from a religious gathering yesterday afternoon when the tire blew. jericka duncan has details.
>> reporter: the bus jumped the median on interstate 40 yesterday afternoon as it was taking a senior citizen church group to their homes in statesville, north carolina. there were 18 people on board. the bus flip and suv and slammed into a trailer, which then burst into flames. >> in my 17 years it's probably the most serious incident i've been a part of. >> reporter: the bus ended up on its side noekt the next to the tractor trailer lying across two lanes of the interstate. the trailer was 50 feet away cut in half. 15 victims were on the bus. the driver and the passenger in the suv were also killed. >> this is involving three vehicles, and the dynamics are great. there are so many variables to this. it's just -- it's a tre mmendou
and it's a tremendous event, and it will take time to investigate it. >> reporter: the senior group belonged to a front street baptist church. a memorial service was held last night. >> this is a time of difficulty, but we trust in god. we trust that he is there always. >> reporter: the accident shut down the interstate for hours. authorities are trying to figure out what caused the bus tire to fail. jericka duncan, cbs news. a storm system brewing in the gulf of mexico has the potential to hit the northern gulf coast with heavy rain and gail force winds. cbs news weather consultant david bernard has the details. >> we're keeping an eye on the strong disturbance, and right now it's located right on the tip of the yucatan peninsula. we have quite a bit of thunderstorm activity developing around this low, but as of yet, not developing into a tropical storm. but that could happen any time within the next six to 12 hours. now, the current thinking is that this is going to move north through the gulf of mexico throughout the day today, friday, and into saturday, and
then make landfall somewhere along the northern gulf coast. the biggest threat whether this develops or not is going to be the potential for heavy rainfall and right now we could see excessive rains that could cause flooding anywhere from southeast louisiana to as far east as portions of the florida panhandle around pensacola. and, again, that would be generally over the next 48 hours or so. i'm david bernard, cbs news, miami. iran's new president hasan rouhani said again that iran is open to discussing details of its nuclear program and that his country is not seeking nuclear weapons, but israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu told "cbs morning news" anchor charlie rose he's not buying iran's charm offensive. >> will they believe that the iranian regime can change and say whatever we were trying to do -- >> yeah. >> -- we're prepared to change.
>> well, mahmoud amine jan was a wolf in wolf's clothing and rouhani is a wolf in sheep's clothing and we can't let him pull the wool over our eyes. so the answer to the question is can there be a real change? maybe yes, maybe not, but the only way to find out is to insist on an agreement that truly dismantles iran's nuclear program. >> you can see more of charlie rose's interview with israeli's prime minister benjamin netanyahu coming up on "cbs this morning." the director of the national security agency admitted his spy agency tested its ability to track americans' cell phone locations, but general keith alexander told the senate judiciary committee that the nsa leaves tracking americans' cell phones to the fbi. he said that may change in the future. the senate hearing was on proposed reforms in the nsa's surveillance programs. >> coming up on the "morning news," charges in a road rage case. a biker accused in the motorcycle gang attack of an suv
