James Arkin, Congressional Reporter for RealClearPolitics, discusses the impending government shutdown as the House passes a short-term resolution and a fight is brewing in the Senate.

Arkin weighs in on which party stands to lose the most in the midterm elections if the government does close at midnight Friday. He notes that based on history, it's very difficult to determine. Whether a short-term fix passes or the government shuts down completely, Arkin says it's important to remember that eventually lawmakers will have to agree on a long-term bill.
