Sept. 27 (Bloomberg) -- House Speaker John Boehner’s plan to avert a shutdown by shifting to a debt-ceiling fight ran into opposition from some Republicans in another setback for efforts to keep the U.S. government operating after Sept. 30.

Increasing every minute that goes by.

The two sites continue to talk past each other.

The clock starting to become the biggest enemy of all.

The senate will pass this bill today.

That is what we inspect to happen at 12:30 here this is the senate democrat bill which will keep the government funded through mid-november.

The legislation will go back to the house of representatives where john boehner is promising to make changes to tweak the bill and send it right back to the senate.

That is right here on bloomberg television.
