    Obama is going to insist on clean bills and simply have a handshake agreement to discuss specific issues.  Ryan is jockeying to get his entitlement cuts and use the threat of shutdowns/defaults to extract more ransom but has no leverage.  Obama isn't going to make changes to the ACA  as a condition of any CR or debt limit bill, so the Collins bill is DOA.  I don't think it would clear the House anyway.  Boehner will not be able to get GOP votes to re-open the government and lift the debt ceiling without conditions.  Boehner will have to get Democratic votes and so far he has been unwilling to make that commitment to Senate Republicans or the White House.  I think the GOP needs to wade in their own mess for a few more days before they figure it out.
