and one  would think after so long of the same scramble and talk and then at the last minute avoiding or getting the shut down done with with one side caving at last that congress would just work together and just pass the bills needed to keep the government going instead of the same old stop gap then sramble when it looks like some political damage could be done. but still stuck in that routine. congress is now trying to avoid a shut down evne though most kind of see it as finaly happening  now mostly because the repubs want any funding to include defunding planned parenthood. but mostly the repubs leading the charge trying to avoid the damage and blame as the same song is hitting congress again call of a shut down of the government.
