Gaseous Anomaly: karnal: Lando Lincoln: karnal: You can see all the Democrats smiling - no worries that it is bad for our country as long as it is good for their party.John Boehner can end this at any time. The ball's in his court. Obama can't end this, since he's not Speaker of the House and cannot bring a call to vote. The Democrats in the House or the Senate can't end this, since they can't bring a call to vote either. It's all Boehner from here.I was under the assumption that Harry Reid could bring it up for a vote at anytime....no?On the shutdown, the Senate has already passed a bill funding the government (at sequestration levels, so no increase from the budget in effect on Sep 30). If Boehner brings this to the floor, holds a vote, and it passes, it goes to Obama's desk, he signs it, and the government reopens. No further action from the Senate is required.On the (much more dangerous) debt ceiling issue, I don't know what the Senate's done already, if anything.
