and thus now that they are back from the holiday its back to business or at least congress trying to get the bare minium done then running again. with the big thing besides at last getting highway funding taken care of and to the states the biggie getting the funding bills for the government taken care of and for the repubs avoid a shut down the same old record. since dems this time like the repubs when dems run things are looking to risk a shutdown  to make sure certain things are done and funded . which means the old filebuster could be busy .  though the repubs will have to face facts and work with the dems . to avoid a shut down the same old road for congress . as they are back on the old merry go round that is trying to run the government and score enough for control and for the repubs the white house after obama.
