Senate Democrats Not Ready to Risk Shutdown

Chris Maddaloni/CQ Roll Call
Reid demurred when asked whether he would demand revenue and a sequester fix in any funding bill to keep the government open.

If the omnibus efforts fail, Republicans hope to be able to persuade Democrats to cave on increased flexibility to carry out the sequester in a smarter way. Sen. James M. Inhofe, R-Okla., said he is already starting to woo more Democrats to cross over and back his flexibility measure or something similar.

Kerry Young and Niels Lesniewski contributed to this report.
