Looks like Leader Harry Reid and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell have a compromise in the Senate. That would not only reopen the government and extend the debt ceiling without having ObamaCare language in it. No defunding or no repeal, no delay but the compromise is that the medical device tax will be repealed. Which is a small price to pay for Democrats since both Democrats and Republicans are against the MDT and it doesn’t really have anything. To do with the Affordable Care Act as far as enforcing it or funding it. So the ACA is still intact even without he MDT and the country is saved from a tax increase. Senate Democrats should take this deal and pass it overwhelmingly and send it to the House with a bipartisan vote. And put more pressure on the House Republican Leadership and moderate House Republicans to vote on this. Agreement and end the shutdown and avoid a default.
