    Beginning of a new fiscal year and no budget in place. I remember when the start of the fiscal year was moved from July 1 to October 1 to give Congress three additional months, but it did not help. Maybe there should be only one payday a year for the president and Congress - October 1 and only if a budget is in place.

    What's even more interesting is the proposal to fund some branches of govt, like military, while not funding others, say Dept of Education. Looks like divide and conquer hostage taking may be the next step in this gridlock wrestling match. Funny, but if the tactic of defunding specific line items worked, why didn't Pelosi try it with the Iraq war? What's missing this time is triangulation. There is no third group in either House or Senate for leaders to work with, so we're stuck with the 51-49 battles on everything.
