Playing poker with Harry Reid on the government shutdown

By Bill Wilson I hope and pray I am wrong. Ideally, I hope the House of Representatives stands firm against demands from the Senate and White House to rubber stamp a so-called “clean” continuing resolution — one that will allow funding for Obamacare to take effect. That […]
