It looks like the Senate won’t be voting on legislation needed to avert a government shutdown, TPM’s Brian Beutler reports.
Sen. Joe Lieberman joked, “If you’re not confused, you don’t know the situation.”
Here’s what Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on the Senate floor, The Hill reports:
“I just talked with the House Democratic leadership, and right now the Republicans are still trying to get enough votes to pass something over there,” Reid said, referring to the House. “[I] have to say we are having a caucus [meeting] in a few minutes, but I can’t see us doing anything tonight.”
