    Re: Senate reaches deal to end shutdown, avoid default

    Finally we can get this issue off the front pages and allow this wonderful Obamacare rollout to take over the headlines. I imagine in 6 months it will be such a train wreck iit will make the shutdown look like a pleasant memory.

    And I like these libs posting like we narrowly avoided a nuclear exchange with Russia or something. Save some of your fake outrage for the next "crisis".

    That meme has been busted thoroughly already (except for those ignorant souls who live by slogan alone). How many Tea Party members are in the house?

    While I'm certainly no expert on congressional procedural rules, my answer to that question would be: apparently enough to matter.

    Unless its more than 100, its hogwash.

    What did they agree to raise the ceiling to for 4 months? I ask, because the treasury needs to reissue 400 billion in notes just to cover the "extraordinary" measures used to keep us under the ceiling since May.

    Well, they did change the standing rules of the house to prevent any house member from bringing a bill (i.e. CR) to the floor...

    The figure the left oriented folks around here keep quoting is 18. That puts the death to the notion that the tea party contingent shut down the government.

    No, there are sufficient Democrats plus sane Republicans to pass this.

    Hey, congratulations, you got a three month extension, kick the can down the road which is what you seem to support. Doesn't matter that the 2011 debt ceiling debate was so successful that we still don't have a budget, and we have almost 17 trillion in debt instead of 14.7 when the last debt ceiling was raised. Congratulations, Liberals, you are getting that entitlement utopia that you all want.
