Speaking at the White House, Barack Obama said the crisis was self-inflicted by politicians.
Last night a debt deal ended two weeks of disruption to federal Government services.
President Obama said the American people were fed up with political stalemate.
"The American people are completely Lely fed up with Washington," he said.
"At a moment when our economic recovery demands more jobs, more momentum we have yet another self inflicted economic crisis that set our economy back."
