Senate floor Live

They are voting on the first part (cloture) and will vote again.

Then the House gets the bill.

The House can amend or vote clean.

*The Word* is the House will pass !!!



Updated: 10/16/13 6:02 PM EDT

The first government shutdown in 17 years is heading for the history books as the House and Senate prepare to vote on legislation to reopen Washington and avert a debt default.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the bipartisan deal Wednesday afternoon. The chamber will vote on the legislation in the afternoon or early evening, a Democratic leadership aide said.

Kicking the can down the road by only a few months. I know that the House will pass it, and I'm pretty sure that the President, unless he does something completely unexpected, will also sign off on it.

So just really a bunch of political theater, kicking the can down the road for the next show down, creeping ever closer in their dates. First a year, then six months, now right around three.

I still think that the damage has been done, and when the rest of the world finds out that they're in for another of these fights in only a few short months, they'll see the same thing I do:

This isn't an agreement. It's a plan to put off the arguing for another day so that they can argue about other stuff.

Oh well done them, finally doing one of the few things that have to do right by the country, and its already weeks late.

Con-freaking-gratulations.

Ding ding ding!!! I agree with you. I am so pissed off about this deal - once again, they just moved the dates.

The next vote is in the House.

If it passes there, then Obama signs it into law.

This could happen tonight.

Yeah. I knew they'd wait until the very last minute. Nothing but political theater. We'll revisit this again in the very near future, and everybody can freak out about it again. I'm so over it.

Anyone notice how this is happening at the last second? Tell me they will have time to read this bill before its passed!! I'm curious to see what "surprises" the have in the bill. After all, you have to pass it before you can read it, right?

What a crock.

No one should be surprised that this is playing out at the last minute. Theatrics at it's finest.

The question remains as to who will be still be standing once the dust settles from the fallout. My guess is the GOP and Tea Party will take a bigger hit than the current administration. Oddly enough, Ted Cruz seems to have gained some traction, after all. It would be sad to think this country was brought to a virtual stand still by a small handful of individuals.

There's already enough 'yes' votes in the House.

It's passing ....

Now watch the National Debt go out of control.
