  •  I don't think they'll reopen the government (0+ / 0-)

    without getting a good deal from Dems and Obama.  I think they'll blink on the debt ceiling, and Obama will have to live with whatever extension they pass (since the alternative is Obama holding the debt ceiling hostage to a clean CR).  

    But, why would the GOP cave on the shutdown?  Really, why?  Can their approval rating go any lower?  The only approval they have left is from the people who want the government permanently shutdown.  Can't lose them by holding out.  That is why I think there will be a deal on the shutdown.

      is looking more and more likely to me.

      I hope there is a deal but none of the pressure on the Republicans is having much effect at the moment

      Do not raise the debt celing. Eliminate it
