  1. Dems move to force Republicans to reopen the government
    But now House Democrats say they have found a previously filed bill to use as a discharge petition — one that would fund the government at sequester levels.

    UPDATE: One slight clarification. If Dems can get the 218 signatures on the discharge petition, then Dems would use a procedural move to replace the Lankford bill with an amendment: A clean CR, just like the one in the Senate. So this would not enshrine the periodic one-percent reductions in spending in the Lankford measure.

    ? I thought the “clean CR” passed by the senate was for “Ryan budget” level funding, which was not even the full sequester level. ?
