As the government shutdown continues on day 14 the countdown continue on the push to raise the debt ceiling. The final voices left can give pause as Reid and McConnell engage to be the white knight but the sword cuts both ways.

Detroit Free Press reported, “It’s come down to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and his GOP counterpart, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.” The government shutdown discussion between the leaders to  raise the debt limit of $16.7 trillion. Further, “The two leaders asserted control over negotiations to end the stalemate on Saturday, when it became clear that House Speaker John Boehner could not strike a deal with the White House on his own. Reid said he was “optimistic,” while Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said Republicans are “very unified” behind McConnell.”

Check and check mate on October 17, if the national interest are not made over party interest.

Weekend shutdown activities

Saturday, New York has committed to reopen the Statue of Liberty and finance the cost. Arizona reopened the Grand Canyon on Sunday and agreed to maintain the cost until October 17.

“More than 400 federally-managed tourist sites ranging from California’s Yosemite National Park to the Statue of Liberty have been closed since the shutdown started on October 1 due to a budget impasse. The stalemate is costing $152 million a day in lost travel-related activity, affecting up to 450,000 American workers, according to the US Travel Association. Alone some 20,000 park services employees were furloughed,” reports Google.

Today national openings

States stepping up to counter act the government shutdown, “Mount Rushmore will welcome visitors again on Monday. South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard said it will cost $15,200 a day for the national memorial to four of the nation’s presidents to stay open. At least a dozen businesses or organizations are partnering with the state to pay the operating costs,” reports Detroit Free Press.

Today, no change with three days to go.
