Senate isn't scheduled to open until 11:00 am. Last House vote is at 11:00 am and then House is expected to release members for the weekend. This points to the only option on the table being the current CR that is DOA in Senate (if the Ns don't flip)....

Schumer calls for a cloture vote tonight and McConnell objected. A failed cloture vote tonight would effectively shutdown the government tonight allowing for a 24 hr news circus tomorrow as Ds try to "negotiate" a deal to avoid shutdown.

re: Government Shutdown Watch - Threat Level 4 of 5 Trumps (House Breaking for Weekend) - rds dc
This is getting to all kinds of crazy. Apparently, the HFC is threatening to pull the plug on the CR preventing it from even getting to the Senate. This seems absurd unless the HFC is just trying to give the R a chance to show they can compromise on aspects of the CR when they finally fall in line? ...
