Senate leaders have reached a last-minute agreement to avert a threatened US default and reopen the government, according to a Republican senator.

Senator Kelly Ayotte said congressional leaders would push for passage as soon as possible.

"I understand they've come to an agreement but I'm going to let the leader announce that," Sen Ayotte said as she walked into a meeting of Senate Republicans called to review details of the emerging deal.

I'm glad this is resolved so Obama can focus on 'immigration reform'...

Senate Solution: Kick the can down the road for 90 days ???

Also, the Quick Fix includes new income verification for ObamaCare.

Sequester Law Levels remain where they are.

Cruz Response: This Quick Fix does nothing for single parents who are being forced into part-time work because of ObamaCare.

Senator Ted Cruz gave an impressive press conference! :tu:

The battle is NOT over. We will be right back at this same spot in 90 days. :yes:

Well except that the teapublican party totally caved, has been shown to be disfunctional, ignorant and seditious.

Washington Post said:


The Senate has once again reached an 11th-hour deal to avert fiscal disaster. And once again, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) was at the center of it.

Thanks to negotiations between McConnell and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), lawmakers will soon vote on a bill that would reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling. For McConnell, it was an unlikely reprise of past efforts to pull the country back from the brink of disaster.

“This has been a long, challenging few weeks for Congress and for the country,” McConnell said Wednesday on the Senate floor as he announced the deal with Reid.

Unless Boehner plays some kind of game,yes.The Dems will most likely pass this bill unanimous and only 17 Reps will be needed.

Well I understand this only pushes the problem back a while but at least we have some breathing room. I'm sure congress will continue to sit on their thumbs until the next crisis looms though

and you think this strategy will work again? That's truly delusional. I can't wait for the mid-terms when the teaparty gets relegated to the dustbins of history.

Ah Ken.  I actually like it when you say things like this.  Why?  Because you have been wrong every single step of the way during the shutdown.  I have come to realize that if Ken says it, it's not true.

Oh yes! The November 2014 Election will be here very soon.

I wonder how the American people will feel when they get penalized / taxed for not signing up for ObamaCare? The website is DEAD.

It sounds just a little unfair.  Wouldn't you agree?
