Shutdown talk after the jump

Upon seeing mixed polling over the weekend indicating that the public is assigning blame on them, Democrats backtracked and agreed to vote for cloture on a clean spending bill. Most political pundits are viewing this as a Democrat cave, and even Feinstien (who voted no today) admitted the loss.

Regardless of your political leanings, and despite my partisan tone above, hopefully we can all agree that keeping the government functioning is a good thing, and hopefully our elected officials can proceed towards responsible bipartisan legislation going forward and beginning with the congressional authorization of DACA with common sense border security.
