This is the week. Congress needs to fund the government by Friday to avoid a government shutdown. It’s all but certain that the government will be funded, despite the dysfunction on display in getting through this week. The House is expected to release the text of the omnibus sometime late this afternoon, which will provide some insight into how much work the Senate side will have to do.

The latest market stabilization proposal would fund the ACA’s cost-sharing reduction payments as well as fund a new reinsurance program, according to Axios.com.
