Congress and the White House say they are moving closer towards an agreement on a $15 billion rescue plan for the auto industry. On CNBC this morning, Sen. John Ensign (R-NV) said he would be inclined to filibuster the auto rescue deal. “I think that not only myself but several of us will be looking at possibly blocking this package,” he said. But when the host asked Ensign whether the government should also rescue Ensign’s home state’s gaming industry, the Nevada senator left the door open:

ENSIGN: That’s exactly right. The gaming industry and the hotel industry are hurting and hurting very very bad.
