No work and no negotiations, President Obama decides

With the government shutdown having lasted a full week so far, President Obama has voluntarily reduced his workload to the minimum as well. During the past week, he has received 5 daily briefings, lunched with VP Biden, and met with Secretaries Hagel and Lew. Additionally, he has delivered 2 statements, one of which was in Maryland.

Following along the with shutdown, the President decided not to go golfing last weekend, and he also cancelled his trip to Asia. Instead, he sent Secretary of State John Kerry to fill in for him.
