Countdown to Shutdown, Ted Cruz and Friendly Iran

Hosted by , ,

The Senate passes a short-term spending bill on Friday and votes to restore funding for President Obama's healthcare law. Are we still heading for a government shutdown? It's anyone's guess. When Obamacare goes into effect, who will be the winners and losers? Other countries have great success with their healthcare systems, and pay less than we do. (Check out Matt Miller's podcast, This Is Interesting, on Singapore's health system.) Was Ted Cruz's sort-of filibuster worthwhile? There's a cooling of tensions between Iran and the US, but Charles Krauthammer is not convinced. Rich Lowry (National Review) joins us on the Right.
