    Both the House and Senate are scrambling to reach a deal in the final hours before a potential government shutdown. Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, and Nancy Pelosi will take center stage as they are tasked with reaching a deal. However, at the moment, prospects of an imminent deal appear unlikely.

    Garland and Lee have started to dig into the activities of the controversial bank HSBC. Whistleblower Nicholas Wilson comes on Fault Lines to discuss his dealings with the bank and his thoughts on their business practices.

    In the final hour of the show, economist and college professor Mark Frost joins the program to discuss the economics of Uber. How does the company's business model operate and how should the public view a modern company like Uber?
