   U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill (D) is chiding House Republicans for failing to allow an up-or-down vote on a so-called "clean funding" bill.  

   McCaskill released a statement as the midnight deadline passed in Washington, saying the government shutdown will upset economic recovery.  She criticized House Speaker John Boehner (R), calling his handing of the budget process "irresponsible political posturing."  

   The St. Louis County Democrat says the federal government shutdown will hurt Missourians by delaying veterans' benefits, causing  furloughs for 39,000 federal employees in Missouri, delaying loans for small businesses and Social Security checks for seniors enrolling in the program for the first time.

   During an interview with CNN's Wolfe Blitzer Monday evening, 2nd District Congresswoman Ann Wagoner (R) said the House GOP were the only ones working to avoid the shutdown.  

   The St. Louis County Republican criticized Senate leadership and President Obama for failing to negotiate over the weekend.  

   Wagoner issued a statement after the midnight deadline saying that she has waived her salary for the duration of the government shutdown "because congress didn't get the job done."  Wagoner blamed the deadlock on "partisan bickering."
