When all's said and done in early October, there will be a governmental status quo, more or less. Conservatives aren't in position to win this one, for all the Democrats have to do is pry loose a few moderate Republicans to get a majority in the House and 60 votes to invoke cloture in the Senate.
That is the path of least resistance.
What's the alternative? Getting the President to give in on his pet project? Not likely.
Getting a veto-proof center-right majority in both houses? You try getting 25 Democratic senators to give their president a middle-digit salute...good luck storming that castle. In February of 2015, possibly, with a different cast of characters, but not right now.
No, the game is for the Democrats to stonewall and get enough Republicans to cave and get the government back in action at roughly current levels. Some token cuts might be offered to give McConnell and Boehner (no, "Boner" is a bit too harsh, spell-checker) a G-string of cover, but one should keep clear of the ground around your establishment Republicans, since sinkholes could develop from their caving in.
Here's the first sinkhole sighting courtesy of Politico-
Even a one-week stop-gap plan - floated by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) as part of a larger package - was roundly dismissed by Democratic leaders as well as conservative Republicans. McConnell’s offer could have allowed more time for the House and Senate to work out their differences on a longer-term continuing resolution. But neither House Republicans nor Senate Democrats saw any upside to it.
The conservatives don't see any upside, but they are largely moot at this point, save for if they manage to primary some of the more accomodating folks into early retirement. It's a coalition of moderate Republicans (which you tell more by Heritage Action scores than ACU scores these days) and Democrats who'll pass both any CRs and any debt ceiling increases.
The alternative is an extended government shutdown that might lead to a disintegration of the United States into a series of regional coalitions, which is why you'll see the more establishmentarian folks cave-in before the As get sent packing by the Tigers next week.
