Article link: Senate reaches deal to avert government shutdown
Into a corner Harry Reid
Applied the paint of FEMA’s need.
He crossed the House with petty games,
And called them less than noble names.
He manufactured, with a threat,
Another game of debt roulette,
And said to take a day or two
To contemplate his point of view.
But Boehner clearly didn’t wanna:
The House went home for Rosh Hashanah.
With no one to negotiate
On money to appropriate,
The Leader looked about his feet
And saw the paint – and his defeat.
And then by magic FEMA found
An extra bit of cash around,
To make it through the fiscal year –
And make his error disappear.
Here’s hoping Boehner plans a tour
Around the time of Yom Kippur.
