Shutdown? Or No Shutdown? Cast Your Vote!

So will lawmakers and the administration reach some sort of agreement on a short- or long-term spending plan, or will the feds shut down?

Your guess is as good as ours.

While we’re all waiting to find out, make your official guess in this poll:

Of course, even if there is a shutdown, the feds can’t close forever. There will eventually be some kind of a deal and we’ll be watching to see if it’s close to the $5 billion in cuts to the Department of Education’s budget that the House GOP was aiming for, or if President Barack Obama gets his way and there aren’t many more cuts to education.
