Government shutdown a fluid situation
The Washington Post's Emily Heil and Politico's Kevin Cirilli talk to MSNBC’s Alex Witt about Day 12 of the government shutdown. Cirilli says that a deal is close between Democrats and the Republicans. He says that the upcoming holiday spending season and the bigger issue of global market confidence will play a role in moving the deal forward. Heil says that Senate Republicans are urging House Republicans to get on board with a deal after the current NBC News/WSJ Poll on who’s to blame for the shutdown.
