The latest plan being negotiated reportedly includes a continuing resolution to fund the government through January 15 of next year and an agreement to lift the debt ceiling through February 15.
Another day, another attempt to make a deal to end the government shutdown. The latest plan being negotiated reportedly includes a continuing resolution to fund the government through January 15 of next year and an agreement to lift the debt ceiling through February 15. President Obama had planned on meeting with bipartisan congressional leaders at the White House Monday afternoon but the meeting was postponed – which a Senior White House Official called a “good sign of progress.” Vice President Joe Biden is also jumping back into the fray to help with negotiations after he was seemingly exiled to Camp David. Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, Ranking Member on the House Budget Committee, Rep. Scott Rigell of Virginia, and Robert Costa, Washington, D.C. Editor for the National Review, will join Chris to discuss the latest developments as Washington works towards a deal.
Steven Rattner, Former Counselor to the Treasury Secretary, will also join the table to talk about why the argument that the government can prioritize payments in the event we reach the debt ceiling is bogus.
Later, Chris Hayes will introduce the latest member of Congress in All In‘s ‘These Are the People Who Are Running The Country’ series: Rep. Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma, who thinks there are four branches of government and physically fit people should not receive food stamps.
Plus: A group of veterans and conservatives rallied in Washington Sunday against the closure of war memorials due to the ongoing shutdown. Tea Party favorites Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz riled up the crowd, who later symbolically dumped the barricades from the World War II Memorial in front of the White House gate. Josh Barro, Politics Editor at Business Insider, will join Chris to talk about the protest and the nature of Tea Party opposition to the shutdown.
