Two updates from Washington, DC:
Update one, on the sidelines of the Netanyahu speech today, the House passed a bill funding the Department of Homeland Security for the rest of the fiscal year, which means we’re not gonna have more Friday night silliness this week.
Update two, the Congressional Budget Office reminded us today that the debt-limit extension expires on March 15th, which means we’re gonna have a whole lot of that silliness when the Treasury exhausts what the CBO calls, its well-established toolbox of so-called extraordinary measures, come October or November.
