the wind watches and advisories going all of the way to western montana. back to bianna. >> all right, ginger, thank you. we'll sue you in a few minutes. we're going to turn now to washington where, after a late-night session that ran into early this morning, congress is still deeply divided and the deadline to avert a government shutdown, midnight monday. that's getting closer every morning. hardest hit would be the government workers. abc's jeff zeleny is on capitol hill with the very latest. good morning to you, jeff. >> reporter: good morning, bianna, it's been 17 years since the last government shutdown. but the next one is likely to come in less than two days. they decided in a rare overnight session to dig in their heels once again and fight. overnight, house republicans doubling down, holding firm on their demand of a one-year delay on obama care.
at the price of keeping the government running. >> this is program that is too expensive to afford. delay obama care. >> reporter: the house vote pushes the government even closer to the edge of its first shutdown in 17 years. >> what if democrats said we're going to shut down the government if we don't get immigration reform, gay rights or gun reform? >> reporter: the biggest question in washington is no longer will the government shut down but who should be blamed if it does? in the middle of it all is one of the 800,000 federal employees who won't be at work or getting paid tuesday morning if there's a shutdown. she has student loans. >> i live paycheck to paycheck. i would have to find a way to manage to take care of my bills. >> reporter: for two years, she's worked as an information assistant at the pentagon. riding the roller coaster of
budget cuts, furloughs and uncertainty. >> it's just one of those cases where, here we go again. >> reporter: the fears of a shutdown reverberating far outside washington to the air force in biloxi, mississippi. >> it's definitely going to impact the amount of money i may make. >> reporter: he fears his business will suffer if government employees can't come to work. >> if they were to lose their paychecks like everyone else, that might motivate them to probably solve some of the problems they're facing right now. >> reporter: what is the endgame? that's the question here this morning without a clear answer. i'm told by aides this morning, the senate won't consider it, they will object it, sending it back to the house, once again, speaker john boehner will have to decide what he's going to do with this bill. this is putting divided government to a whole new level. >> if this does lead to a government shutdown, you have to
wonder how it's going to affect the president's schedule to asia next week. let's go to george stephanopoulos, host of "this week." we have to mention the debt ceiling, how do these two interact? >> jeff was talking who's going to get blamed. the real question is, how long is this government shutdown going to last? the government is going to shut down for at least a short period of time late monday night, tuesday, we'll see how long it takes to sort that out. the consequences of missing that deadline catastrophic for the economy. so a lot of observers believe that maybe, the house, and senate and the white house get this out of their system on the government funding bill and it will make it easy to pass the debt limit later. we have been through this the last several years. every single time we go to brink it seems like the sides are driven further apart.
>> let me pick up on that, and let's look at some of footage of house members leaving the capitol. last night. step back and give a more holistic diagnosis, are we doomed to endless rounds of this brinksmanship? or, is this a bad phase we're in? >> that's why the president has taken a hard line on this. he's not going to negotiate with republicans. he says that is a essential, you got to break this fever. you can't allow the press to every time we come up against the debt limit there's going to be a negotiation between the two parties. we got to get back to regular business and pass the debt limit and pay our bills. >> there's the question, can the fever be broken? you'll be talking a lot about that later on the show. george will have the latest on the potential government
shutdown and an interview with former president bill clinton, on this "this week," later this morning. george, thanks again. there was lots of news overnight. of course, as always, of course. >> from dr. stephanopoulos to dr. claiborne. we have breaking news out of london this morning, amazing pictures coming in right now. 30 people have been rescued from a boat fire on the thames river. cru crews on hand to get everyone off. right now, no cause. new information on the yarnell fire, that killed 19 firefighters from the granite mountain hotshots, communications problems and unusual weather conditions created a deadly situation. abc's clayton sandell has more. >> reporter: this morning, a tragic mystery still unsolved. why did 19 elite firefighters leave a safe position only to
get caught in the path of a raging inferno? all radio contact with the granite mountain hotshot team was lost. for 30 minutes, commanders didn't know it. >> no one directed them to move from the location they were in. obviously, they made a decision based on the information that they had. >> reporter: a new report by local and federal fire officials reveals the hot shots likely lost sight of the blaze. that's when powerful winds suddenly turned the flames directly toward them. >> the wind shifted again. and this time, it shifted and increased in velocity and brought the fire up the canyon at them. >> reporter: with flames closing in, the hot shots, had two short minutes to deploy fire shelters like these. the fire storm so extreme, investigators said no one could have survived. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news,

just passed in the house. they don't get back into session 2:00 tomorrow afternoon, ten hours before the government shutdown. >> what happens next? >> reporter: well, unclear, but what i'm hearing this morning from republicans is that they'll still attempt to put provisions in there and send it back to the senate. >> the question is, how long does that go? a couple of days? or does it stretch on to the point of that second major deadline of october 17th? far more serious, does this back and forth make it more likely that we'll avoid a confrontation over a deadline? >> reporter: one, this works out so poorly for the republicans they realize they can't go to the brink again with the debt ceiling. on the other side of this, george, positions have gotten so harden here and there's such division, hard to imagine a
