Government Won’t Shut Down

Based on comments from Boehner and the White House, it looks as if there will be a continuing resolution to keep the government funded at the sequester levels.

The GOP is picking its battles carefully.  The sequester cuts?  Meh…  People not getting their Social Security checks?  BFD.

So there won’t be a government shutdown on March 27.

Next up is the debt ceiling in May.

    My guess is that both sides are realizing that the public is just plain out of gas on these manufactured mini crises. The emperors have no clothes, and we just don’t care any more.

    I will be surprised if they don’t attempt to restore some of the defense budget cuts in the CR.
