At present, according to news reports, the only sticking point is what to do about the medical devices tax (2.3%) which is estimated to raise about $3 b a year, how long the deal should be for (Jan? Feb?), and whether 600 people in Congress/Executive should get employer match (OK that is just grandstanding, because Darrel Issa said he would match everyone out of his personal fortune, natch.) So, the whole negotiation is over $3b a year.
Since government shutdown is paying workers anyway, the value of services lost over two weeks probably exceeds 10 years of the medical devices tax. So this is all pure loss, with nothing except political posturing at stake. Let me say that again: neither side actually gets anything really valuable (in terms of a policy change) for all the drama of these negotiations. I could see negotiating to the brink over a $400 billion reduction in defense spending, or a major revision of Affordable Care Act… but $3 b a year? Really?
Will be interesting to see how share prices of medical device makers move when final deal announced.
