Welcome to the live blog!
It's day two of the government shutdown. The president and Congress are finally starting to talk, but the stalemate over spending and Obamacare drags on.
Joining Van Jones and S.E. Cupp in the Crossfire at 6:30pm ET to debate are Emily Miller of the Washington Times and former Rep. Tom Perriello.
Perriello believes the government should be reopened with no strings attached, while Miller thinks Obamacare should be delayed before ending the shutdown.
