Congress Open Thread

In other news, Speaker of the House John Boehner says that reports of an imminent budget deal, or a farm bill, are premature.

“I’ve made it clear that the House is going to leave next Friday,” Boehner said. “You all know me pretty well: I say what I mean, and I mean what I say.”

Boehner says he will pass a one-month extension of the 2013 farm bill if necessary.

Uncertainty(!) is exactly what American farmers and businesses want for Christmas, right?
