Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire evoked President Ronald Reagan in arguing against the House Republican strategy to defund Obamacare by forcing a government shutdown.

"Look where we are," Ayotte said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation." "The government's shut down, Obamacare exchanges are still open."


"I think it's time for conservative problem-solvers to get things done," said. "That's what Ronald Reagan did."

Urgent: Should GOP Stick to Its Guns on Obamacare? Vote Here.  

However, Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas, said the government will not go into default on Oct. 17, and the White House is trying to scare markets with its rhetoric about raising the debt ceiling by that date.

"There are no payments due on Oct. 17 to pay our creditors," Huelskamp said on the CBS show.

Pressed by host Bob Schieffer that Treasury Secretary Jack Lew has said the opposite, Huelskamp noted that Lew "said a lot of things a week ago," and that the "White House is trying to scare the markets. "
