Potential Senate Deal Would Fund US to Jan. 15, Raise Ceiling Through Feb. 15

The latest outline of a potential Senate deal to end the fiscal impasse and government shutdown calls for keeping the government funded until Jan. 15 and raising the debt limit through Feb. 15, congressional aides told ABC News today.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are spearheading the negotiations as the White House postponed a planned afternoon meeting with congressional leaders to give them time to do their work.

It is still a moving target, but the plan is the framework for what McConnell and Reid believe could make a deal -- "and avoid repeating this all over again at Christmas," in the words of one top adviser.

But it's unclear how House Speaker John Boehner, who is being advised on the plan, and his Republican conference would react to any Senate deal. Boehner met this afternoon with McConnell for about 30 minutes for "an update on negotiations," a spokesman said.

this “shutdown” has been great hasn’t it. i didn’t think it could happen with the GOPe against us and to have it last this long, icing on the cake. but kudos to Sen.’s Cruz, Lee and the House conservatives for putting it together.

it’s so great to be on offense after so long on defense.

the benefits are many and will be on going for true conservatives. they are readily seen for those with eyes to see.

What’s the point of income verification during the enrollment process?

The IRS controls Obamacare, so all they need to do is compare your enrollment claim/subsidy to your tax return. Liars get stuck with a tax bill, a penalty, and all ur property are belong to us!

-——The IRS controls Obamacare,-—

Which means that to sign up and receive benefits you must come forward. Come April 16 and no tax return they will cut off healthcare and come after you for back taxes

Boehner and the boys are actually grasping for something that conservatives will like so they can pretend to be conservatives who are winning the fight against Obama.
