    hey Tom- can you make that the next poll?

    Will there be a government shutdown at the end of this week?

    Thanks

    No government shutdown this week.
    They don’t want the market to tank and lose the money they have invested on those insider tips they’re not supposed to be getting anymore.

    Sounds like both sides of the aisle are blocking passage of the CR at this point. Stop trying to attach conditions and pork to the CR maybe? That's why they get themselves into this predicament in the first place.

    Congress votes to avert government shutdown, but Senate fails to pass disaster aid package

    No Shutdown. Congress kicked the can down the road to Jan 19. (Nice of them to give us our 2 Holidays in January before threatening another Shutdown!)

    As for the disaster areas....they are going to have to suck it up through the Holidays.

    Default GOV Shutdown or not?

    Note: We are now less than 72 hours away from the next potential government shutdown. (Money expires Feb 8 at midnight).

    What do you think? Another midnight 3 week extension in the works? Or will it be messy again?

    It sounds like both the House and the Senate are trying to get some stuff approved but from what it looks like it would result in another CR.

    The House needs to have a vote tomorrow because the Dems go on retreat Thursday. So if the talking heads knew that why did they pick the 8th????

    Anyway, I don't have a warm fuzzy about this and if we do shutdown it won't be for a day or two.

    Congress, the only government employees that can just keep telling their bosses (the American people) that they're going to need an extension (over, and over, and over again) because they're simply incapable of doing the job they're paid to do.
    That goes 100% for both sides of the aisle.
    I'm amazed their approval rating is a whopping 9%.
