Every day we ask influential politicos to send us their top three bullet points that are driving the day's conversation inside and outside Washington.
RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:
– Here is your must-see chart of the day. No other comment necessary.
– On another front, the FAA remains shut down with the government losing a billion dollars of tax revenue generated through airport fees. The Democrats are trying to say the GOP is holding everyone hostage over a labor union dispute. Except I've read the legislation for the short-term continuing resolution. The labor dispute the Democrats are claiming is the problem is not in the bill. It just simply isn't there. What is there is an end to the essential air service program — a cut the Democrats are opposed to but would have a hard time publicly opposing.
– Has anyone noticed the short-term continuing resolution expires September 30th? Get ready for another Washington kabuki dance.
