From NBC's Ken Strickland
A statement released late Friday by the office of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid suggests Congress is moving towards a deal to avoid a government shutdown--at least for the short term. Democrats say they are "encouraged" by reports about the short term spending bill that House Republicans are expected to pass and send to the Senate on Tuesday.

"The plan Republicans are floating today sounds like a modified version of what Democrats were talking about." said Reid's spokesman Jon Summers in a statement.

A senior Democratic aide warned that the devil was in the details, and that leaders had yet to examine the full details of the entire House bill, which would fund the government for two weeks and includes $4-billion in spending cuts.

Yup....the money runs out friday...glad to see our congress people are going to do something...

Looks like a two week extension...hey that what they were doing with UI last year..this is the Band-aid congress...

The republicans not only believe in continual war...looks like they believe in continual debate about the same issues also..

Thank you for posting this. The following pretty much sums it up for me:

"Setting up a shutdown crisis every two weeks disrupts the continuity of good government operations and long-term planning. It is not a responsible way to govern."

House passes two-week stopgap spending bill

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday that the Senate will approve the bill within the next two days, giving lawmakers an additional two weeks to negotiate a longer-term measure to fund the government.

I was over at Knarf's house last night downing a few brews and watching the Bill O'Reilly Show. Dick Morris was on and he said that he thinks the Republican strategy should be to grant only 2 week stop gap bills.
