House GOP Prepares Another Offer

Robert Costa: "It hasn't been announced, and you won't hear about it today, but the final volley of the fiscal impasse, at least for House Republicans, is already being brokered. And according to my top sources -- both members and senior aides -- it won't end with a clean CR, or with a sprawling, 2011-style budget agreement. It'll end with an offer -- a relatively modest mid-October offer that concurrently connects a debt-limit extension, government funding, and a small, but strategically designed menu of conservative demands."

"There is a growing acceptance, especially among the leading players, that the debt-limit talks will soon blend into the shutdown talks and force Republicans to negotiate a delicate peace that can win the support of a majority of the conference (or close to it), as well as a smattering of Democrats."
