Shutdown Looks More Likely
Bulletin just now from NYT: "House Republican leaders presented their rank and file with a proposal for a one-year delay of President Obama’s health care law and a permanent repeal of its tax on medical devices to attach to the Senate’s bill to keep the government running through Nov. 15. If accepted by the Republican caucus and passed by the House, the package would all but assure that much of the government will shut down on Tuesday. Senate Democratic leaders have made clear that they will accept no such scaling back of the health care law."
