    What's the end game? No matter what the Senate does, it still ends without Republicans getting the one thing that they went into this process trying to get.

    Has there been a House CR that has not had a vote in the Senate?

    Is there now or has there been at any point this session a House continuing resolution that would have passed the Senate if it went to the floor on an up or down vote? No.

    Is there now a Senate continuing resolution that would pass the House the moment an up or down vote was allowed? Yes.

    How does that go both ways?

    If it's like last time, those workers will get their pay in lump, plus interest, so it may be inconvenient but they'll be okay. This also doesn't count against their time off. Or at least that's what happened last time to the FAA-controllers not included since they weren't furloughed

    or use the $300 mil sent to Detroit

    not sure why but small to midcap domestic oilers had a boom day today, average of 8 stocks I hold was up over 3% today alone. maybe it was Israel talking tough on Iran or the increased EUR's per spacing unit from latest tests but the bakken was rockin today. Texas drillers did ok but not like the bakken. 401k up almost $18k today, think I might have a drink to celebrate when I get home

    You could say the same thing about the house bills being sent to the senate but Reid won't let them be voted on.

    Again, we are discussing the government shutdown. Has there been a House CR that has not received a vote?
