Boehner's Master Plan

"House Republicans have orchestrated a master plan to avoid a government shutdown, delay the implementation of Obamacare, and maintain the current, post-sequester spending levels," National Journal reports.

"But first, they need the Senate to shred the very proposal that House conservatives have spent all week celebrating. According to several Republican lawmakers and senior aides who spoke on condition of anonymity, a strategy is coming into focus that, if properly executed, would accomplish multiple GOP policy objectives in one maneuver. With the deadline for a new continuing resolution looming on Oct. 1, and the House poised to pass a CR that will be dead on arrival in the Democratic-controlled Senate, sources are confident the strategy can work -- but only if the dominoes fall in precise fashion."
