Upton: Debt ceiling deal will end shutdown

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- A West Michigan lawmaker believes he knows what it will take to end the government shutdown.

Congressman Fred Upton of St. Joseph was part of the congressional "supercommittee" a few years ago that tried to find a long-term debt ceiling solution and he says he thinks getting back to that might do the trick.  The Republican chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee says negotiations are underway to tie raising the debt ceiling to a way to end the shutdown.

House Speaker John Boehner told ABC's "This Week" Sunday that there aren't enough votes to pass raising the debt ceiling with no strings attached, however.
