FCW Insider: Are we having a flashback?
So my better half was on a train coming from New Jersey earlier this week and overheard what has become my favorite joke: You guess what year it is -- O.J. Simpson gets arrested, Hillary Clinton introduces a health care plan, and there is the possibility of a government shutdown.
That being said, a government shutdown seems unlikely at this point. Yes, the end of the government's fiscal year is about a week away and not a single spending bill has been passed
. The House has taken action on all 12 bills. The Senate, however, has yet to act on seven of the 12 bills.
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) has proposed a no-shutdown proposal
. New OMB Director Jim Nussle this week praised that provision
, while taking a swipe at the Democratic leadership.
Can you say CR?
