commented on How Long Will the Shutdown Last?
"THE 1 PARAGRAPH TO READ: All signs point to a shutdown of at least two weeks, with an exit strategy on the spending bill running into negotiations over raising the debt ceiling, which has a deadline of Oct. 17. No real negotiations are going on. A top Dem aide tells us: “The Republicans will get their wish. They will get to tie the CR [continuing resolution] and debt ceiling. And then they will realize they are totally screwed. … Because they will have caught their own tail. … [W]ait until their own money supporters tell them they have gone too far. Can you imagine if they really let us default? They will be digging out for years.”" ~Politico
