Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

Today on The Of This Sunday Meet, Sen. Lindsey Graham called the shutdown “a political gift to the president” and Jeb Bush said Sen. Ted Cruz should “have a little bit of self-restraint.” A defiant Cruz said “I don’t work for the party bosses in Washington” but Treasury Secretary Jack Lew called the shutdown “a turning point.” Also, Sen. Dick Durbin said the ACA is “on its way to be a substantial success” despite website problems prompting a “tech surge” from HHS. And Sen. Marco Rubio said the president “has undermined” immigration reform. Really?
