A Fiscal Crisis With No Negotiations

"Everything is different this time," the Washington Post notes.

"A different set of political dynamics has upended the old playbook, and a resolution to this fiscal crisis seems especially remote." President Obama, Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid "remain far apart, having occasional phone calls but no substantive negotiations."

The Fix: "If Day 1 of the government shutdown told us anything, it's that this situation isn't going to resolve itself anytime terribly soon... Entrenchment in established positions is the name of the game at the moment. And, you don't dig in deeper when you are looking for ways to move on."
