Abstract

Chris Gilson looks at the best in political blogging from the Beltway and across the States. Countdown to shutdown This week began with the threat of a government shutdown over the budget looming large. On Saturday, the budget battle gives Via Meadia opportunity to look at the relative power of the House of Representatives compared to that of the White House, saying that, at least theoretically, it is closer to public opinion and therefore should be more powerful. As budget negotiations continued through the weekend, Wonkblog looked at the Republican demand for a repeal of Obamacare’s medical device tax, writing that despite the claims of the medical industry that the tax is killing jobs, the Democrats were not likely to budge on it.
