Obama says he expects Congress will raise debt cap

In this photo taken Friday, Oct. 4, 2013, President Barack Obama smiles during an exclusive interview with The Associated Press in the White House library in Washington, four days into a partial shutdown of the federal government that has forced 800,000 people off the job, closed national parks and curbed many government services. The deadline for keeping the government open coincided with the Oct. 1 start of sign-ups for the insurance markets at the center of the health care overhaul Obama signed into law during his first term. Government websites struggled in the first week to keep up with high demand for the new marketplaces. It's not clear that more than a few managed to enroll the first day. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak)
