We are out of time. Ted Cruz wasted a full day, and the House Republicans wasted a couple more. to avoid a federal shut down, we would need the House to accept the Senate budget on Monday, but they are giving clear signals that they are going to send a budget tha delays implementing the affordable health care act another year- which both the Senate And the President have called unacceptable.
So the shutdown will happen. It is now a question not of IF, but rather, of how long.
