Congress and President Obama struck a deal to fund the government through next fall and avoided a shutdown.
What, you didn’t know anything about that? No surprise. I get the sense that the American people have tuned out the machinations of Washington lately. I’m going to call it the calm before the storm. There is no doubt that dark clouds are brewing and it’s going to be pretty rough for Washington – both Democrats and Republicans.
Democrats have more to lose – the Senate and the White House – and the Republicans who lose are more likely to go down in primaries to other Republicans. Let’s just say there is some serious angst out there.
