  •  They even gave Feds a pay raise! (0+ / 0-)

    Not that they wanted to, but they'd shot themselves in the foot so badly they had no choice but to acquiesce to Harry Reid's demand that the Feds be given their first pay raise in years starting in January.

    Speaking of things that start in January, there's the mid-term election cycle to worry about.  And the last thing most Republicans want is for another shutdown to nuke their approval ratings yet again, this time three months closer to Election Day.
