    It's refreshing to learn that the Senate and Congress are at least thinking about compromise. Whether or not they'll think fast enough remains to be seen.

      Whether they are actually talking compromise is another. Too often 'compromise' means 'give us our way'.

      Frankly, I'm hoping for another shutdown. Congressional gridlock is a useful situation.
      Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

        You think not paying federal workers is a good idea? The money doesn't stop with them and goes on to affect those from whom they buy goods and services. The last shutdown cost the economy $11 billion...and you're OK with that?

          Actually it only cost 3 billion in "“lost government productivity"” the other 8 billion was returned to the economy when the workers were paid their back due wages.
          Oh and the number of jobs grew during the shutdown so there is that.
