Skip to comments.Senator: Deal to avoid default and open government
Posted on 10/16/2013 8:24:39 AM PDT by TangledUpInBlue
Senate leaders reached agreement Wednesday to avert a threatened Treasury default and reopen the government after a partial, 16-day shutdown, according to a Republican senator who also said the House might vote first on the plan to speed its approval.
The New York Stock Exchange soared on the news that the threat of default was easing in, rising nearly 200 points by late morning.
"I understand they've come to an agreement but I'm going to let the leader announce that," Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H........

Obama and Reid lied...Boehner cried.
Is there a more obnoxious publicity hound than Ayotte? (Perhaps Peter King comes close.) She was on MSNBC this morning with Murkowski and Collins, carrying water for Harry Reid. Birds of a feather.....
What you don’t think the markets will sell off? That investors might lighten up dollar holdings? That Obama will shut off SS checks for seniors and the media will blame the tea party for starving old people to death? That won’t happen? Seems some folks here are willing to hold their breaths until Nancy Pelosi is speaker. This is the plan now?
When the bill is announced it will then go to the house for a vote...limited procedures because it’s been agreed if the house votes first time will be saved.
“Boehner needs to be made to understand that if he screws the Tea Party, hes out of the Speakers job.”
No he isn’t. He will win in his district and he will remain speaker in the House with the consent of the tea party members in the House. Want to bet?
none of these morons see that growing government is also taking away our freedoms. the democrats and other idiots are happy to be slaves of the government . they trust and love government and don't see it's just running on debt
<....”Obama and Reid lied...Boehner cried”.....>
We can name this tune in one note....is this just another extention?....It sounds that way.
Don't know Pen....He didn't have the votes before, but if Obama gets respite today, he will have new momentum and be on the road tomorrow with amnesty and continue the harangue of blaming Repubs. If his media campaign shifts the polls, GOP will cave....again...
Sheesh: Just now hearing Rush say the same thing. On to the next battle... Amnesty.
listening to mcconnell address senate now on cspan.
says something will happen later today
platitudes, no specifics that i could tell
why is anything that gets announced in the senate news of any significance?
Ayotte should be a one term senator. She has the IQ of an amoeba
with apologies to amoebas. Fixed it
The big secret of the cosmos is that the author of evil is smaller than the author of goodness. If we collapse everytime there is a trial (because of our lack of faith in this fundamental fact) then we get nowhere. Quite true, Obama is probably going to brag on his usual vapid nothing, and we have to steel ourselves as best as possible for it. But an iterative process is going on here and when the good dares to make a move, it will make progress in the big picture.
that is what will cause collapse , growing debt. why aren't you and your media allies worried about what the exploding debt will do to the markets
the markets will see finally common sense in not raising the debt ceiling and will eventually grow. that is what is needed , to stop borrowing or don't you get it? you are brainwashed by the media lies. are you a democrat?
sen. pryor (d-ark) now addressing senate, giving credit to sen collins
Well, they announced the “deal” so now we know what it is.
It’s very bad.
now mccain is on, giving thanks to the committee of 14 senators
