  • Harry Reid just (8:40 p.m. Eastern) issued a statement saying a short term extension is a “non-starter.”  Via Reuters:  “”Speaker Boehner’s plan, no matter how he tries to dress it up, is simply a short-term plan, and is therefore a non-starter in the Senate and with the president,” Reid said in a prepared statement.”

  • Buy! or was it Sell!?
