Re "It's a mad dash to end the shutdown" (Page A1, Oct. 12): At midnight when the continuing resolution bill failed to pass, a loud thundering cheer rose up in the House. The Republicans were acting as if they had just won the World Series.
The GOP plan was to introduce piecemeal bills to agencies that were closed. Republican supporters are unable to see or think outside the bubble they're in.
