    All we could agree on was that members of Congress would keep getting their paycheck through the shutdown.

    Sometimes you learn the most from failure. Therefore, we’ve formed a budget advisory committee that includes Jeffrey Skilling, Andy Fastow, a psychic to channel Ken Lay and other convicted failures. We’re very excited.
