    Been listening to Greta, she is correct. There is completely nothing that happened, everything stays the same for a few months! Every one wins but us!!

    Oh and the 0bozo is going to say a few (thousand) words after the senate vote. Anybody here think big head isn't going to gloat and call Reps bad names?

    Republicans did get some thing out of this.

    They got out of a trap set by obama that they were them selves too dumb to walk blindly into without any idea of what to do.

    Obama got maybe two weeks of gloating and a boost in moral from the left, but got nothing in return as well. He wanted the GOP to talk a full hit involving the sequester as well.

    Only thing I hope is Boehner gets the boot for this disaster and some one with half a brain cell takes his place. A major step up in my book.

    Looks like we did get some thing after all.

    We got pork.

    MCCONNELL-REID DEAL INCLUDES $2 BILLION EARMARK FOR KENTUCKY PROJECT......

    A proposal to end the government shutdown and avoid default orchestrated by Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and Democratic Leader Harry Reid includes a $2 billion earmark for a Kentucky project.

    Language in a draft of the McConnell-Reid deal (see page 13, section 123) provided to WFPL News shows a provision that increases funding for the massive Olmsted Dam Lock in Louisville from $775 million to nearly $2. 9 billion.

    The dam is considered an important project for the state and region in regards to water traffic along the Ohio River.

    As The Courier-Journal's James Bruggers reported in 2011, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said they needed about $2.1 billion for the locks due to "stop and go funding."

    Asked about the additional funding in the proposal, McConnell spokesman Robert Steurer directed all questions to lawmakers who worked on the bill directly.

    "Senators (Diane) Feinstein and (Lamar) Alexander, the chair and ranking member of the energy and water subcommittee, worked on the issue and can help you," he says.


    Since 2009, McConnell has been an outspoken supporter of the project, and has been working on getting its funding for some time.

    Still, conservative critics of the proposal argue it is nothing more than a "kickback" for McConnell in an age where Tea Parties have eschewed earmarks.

    The Olmsted Dam sees nearly 90 billion tons of materials such as coal, petroleum and other goods move through that stretch of the Ohio River annually.
