The Daily Quote

“Without a budget deal or a continuing resolution, the threat of a government shutdown looms when the current CR expires Jan. 15. Meanwhile, as many as 1.3 million Americans would be without long-term unemployment insurance at the end of the year if the House and Senate do not vote by then to extend those benefits. There's also literally dozens of other types of extenders set to expire, including provisions related to charitable deductions, energy, community assistance, and disaster relief. Some of these matters could be addressed retroactively early next year, although doing so would lead to uncertainty. Schedules can be changed, but Speaker John Boehner has said the House intends to stick to its plan to adjourn for the year at the end of this week.”
