FROM THIS EPISODE

GOP House leaders offer short-term debt ceiling deal. House Speaker John Boehner offered to lift the debt ceiling—at least temporarily. And, the White House reportedly ignored warnings that health-insurance exchanges in 36 states were not ready to go on line on the first of October. Will frustrated consumers go back to healthcare.gov? Also, if you think your dog has feelings, you might be right. We’ll talk to a neuroscientist who's examined dogs' brains in MRI scanners.
