Di Destra e di Sinistra, in campo insieme per beneficenza :-)

Would more women in Congress have prevented the shutdown?

As the fiscal impasse began to show signs of breaking Wednesday on Capitol Hill, one group may have emerged as a voice of reason all along: female lawmakers.
“I know my colleagues are tired of hearing about the women in the Senate,” Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said with a smile on Wednesday, before continuing to give “kudos” on the Senate floor to those involved in the bipartisan proposal to end the shutdown and temporarily raise the debt ceiling to avoid default.
Six of the fourteen senators behind the compromise that the House approved Wednesday night are women

A bipartisan group of senators organized by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) met for two hours Monday morning, as talks intensify in the Senate over ways to end the government shutdown and lift the debt ceiling.
After briefing Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) about the talks Monday morning, Collins said the group was making progress — but that focus must remain on talks between McConnell and Sen. Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.).
"We continue to discuss the parameters of an agreement," she said. "But there really is a focus on the leadership right now."
