Republicans are apparently ready to deal. They'll raise the debt limit and end the shutdown but want spending cuts.

That sounds good, doesn't it?

Until you start talking about which cuts and what size. Remember that spending has already been curtailed dramatically by sequestration.

Much more to come, no doubt.

Uncertain if this means an end to the rift in Republican ranks.
