Senator Reid, Speaker Boehner and the White House have reportedly reached a funding extension compromise, in order to avoid a government shutdown.
Some details of the compromise, which apparently won’t limit spending, contrary to the wishes of the voters.
Some Twitter users are taking it in stride; the “compromise” isn’t really unexpected.

And, of course, Senator Reid (D-Nev.) couldn’t resist pulling the “fair share” nonsense. Twitter users were quick to call both him and Mr. Russert on it.
Luke Russert is now framing it as a “cage fight.”
