A growing number of Democrats are calling for a delay of key parts of the Affordable Care Act. Many of them are speaking out a day after Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius appeared on AC360, saying President Obama did not know about technical problems with the rollout until after the launch. Now the White House is promising daily briefings on the web site problems. Republicans are preparing for hearings that start tomorrow. CNN's Dana Bash has the latest from Capitol Hill.

Conservative protesters gathered this weekend for the “Million Vet March” at the WWII Memorial in Washington. Sen. Ted Cruz and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin spoke at the rally, which resembled familiar Tea Party events from 2009. Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, a conservative political advocacy group, called for Pres. Obama “to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up.” Our panel discusses whether the rhetoric at the march crossed the line.
An early evening meeting at the White House ending with no deal on either averting a debt-ceiling breech or reopening the government. It comes as new polls show Americans say they would vote out the entire Congress if they could.

Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King spoke to Anderson about the government shutdown and the upcoming debt ceiling deadline.

King predicted an agreement to end the shutdown would pass in the House, he also warned "this Congress does not have the discipline to bring down spending and balance the budget."
Chief National Correspondent John King along with political analysts Gloria Borger and David Gergen listened to Congressman King's interview and weighed in on the budget standoff.
House Republicans upping the ante, passing a series of bills to fund popular parts of the government, daring Democrats to oppose them. Democrats calling that a cynical ploy. Anderson discusses this with political analysts David Gergen and Gloria Borger, along with Chief National Correspondent John King
Time is running out for lawmakers to strike a deal to prevent the government from shutting down. It's Republican vs. Republican in the latest round of this budget battle. The House is preparing to vote on a bill that would keep the government running, but also defund Obamacare. It's a measure that stands virtually no chance in the Senate, and would face a near certain veto from the president. While some Tea Party members in Congress are pushing for this vote, others in the GOP are warning of a disaster. Anderson discussed all of this with CNN's John King, chief political analyst Gloria Borger, and political commentator Ana Navarro.
