Read the latest news.  Republicans are paying attention to the polls, which shows them sinking out of sight.

It's over.  There will be a deal, a clean CR, a repeal of the medical device tax attached to raising the debt ceiling, and the promise of a conference on the budget.

That's it.  That's all Ted Cruz got for leading his foolish GOP compatriots into a shutdown.  Now, instead of the failure of Obamacare's roll out being the issue, Obamacare has gone UP in public approval.

What a shame and what a waste.  Never, EVER listen to a bombthrower.
Roy Moore's "spiritual warfare" is driving past a junior high without stopping.

No shame.
No waste.

The problem was not that the Pubbies may have listened to Ted Cruz.

The problem was that they DIDN'T listen to the advice Margaret Thatcher gave to G.H.W. Bush a score of years ago:
"Don't go wobbly"...

The Pubbies are a-wobblin' and a-bobblin' right now...
The democrats, on the other hand, understood the wisdom presented by Mrs. Thatcher quite well. They won't budge. They won't go wobbly.
That's why they may win. Because they hung tough, and the Republicans caved.

A few months down the line, we're just gonna do this all over again.
How many repeats are necessary before the Republicans finally begin to learn something?

If they don't start learnin', and learn very quickly, they ain't gonna be around too much longer!

Boehner holds the trump card and is too flipping stupid to use it.  Private business not the only place money is being hoarded, the Federal Government departments are sitting on a ton of cash that has to be spent or they will lose it....  and since a lot of those "non-essential" people are currently "laid off" we now know how much can be trimmed from the Federal Budget thanks to this shut down and Boehner could actually use this.
