    Ryan's efforts to make a deal with Senate Democrats has traction with conservative Republicans, and perhaps most importantly Senator Patty Murray (D-Wash), who is chair of the Senate Budget Committee. Ryan and Murray have yet to meet, but it is said they have been having backdoor communications in the last few days. A Senate effort to extend the debt limit one year and which makes vague references to delaying some phases of the ACA looks to be dead in the water and Reid refuses to let it out of committee if it is approved.

    UPDATE: Not only did Reid's plan collapse, so did Senator Susan Collins' (R-Maine) plan.


    That leaves the Ryan plan the only viable option on the table at this juncture, but the House adjourned for the weekend and went home, after defeating a Democratic Party effort to reopen the government with a "clean" CR similar to Reid's failed idea.
