Next steps for U.S. in Ukraine uncertain, limited

With thousands of Russian troops already on the ground in Ukraine, President Obama says Putin's country is "on the wrong side of history."

Shutdown could hurt nation's veterans

As we've mentioned, all "essential" people – like members of Congress – will keep getting paid during a government shutdown.
