    REID. Mr. President, I have heard reports that the Speaker has announced that Congress will be in session next week. I don't know if that is valid. I haven't heard from him myself, but the December 11 deadline was a deadline that the Republicans set and we didn't.

    If the Congress fails to finish our business by December 11, it will be because Republicans continue to insist on extraneous poison pill riders in the government funding bill. These are Republican riders, Republican earmarks, and as long as they are there, there can be no legislation.

    Without legislation, the government shuts down again--as it did a couple of years ago--because of Republicans.
