(U.S. Edition) The Senate has to approve a spending bill by midnight to keep the government from shutting down, but the votes just don’t seem to be there. Jim Kessler, from the centrist think tank Third Way, explains which groups and agencies could be affected. Afterwards, we’ll discuss a recent survey that finds in many cases, employees who were sexually harassed never reported it to management.
