The end is near / debt negotiations

Thankfully we are coming to the end of the ordeal of trial by tv -24 hours a day,7 days a week.
Lets see.Libya in stalemate
Syria killing innocents
Iran popping off missiles-ready for nuclear warheads
N Korea appointed head of UN disarmament Comm., etc..etc
However the US is focused on Orlando.

The WH is still the best bully-pulpit in the world.How these debt negotiations end is not clear yet.However Govt. bt transparency is off the table.Not that I blame the Pres. totally, except the Dems have not had a budget in well over 2 years when they controlled both Houses and the WH.Now as we come to a deadline,suddenly the pressure is on.
However when members of Congress complain that they are forced to get the news from the Press, something is wrong .
