Breaking News

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Speaker John Boehner have reached a deal to keep the government funded for six months, meaning there will be no threat of a government shutdown when the fiscal year ends Sept. 30. The funding deal would keep government spending at current levels through March 2013. Both chambers of Congress will likely vote on the resolution in September. 

This means that funding will continue through the election, avoiding embarrassment to either or both parties.  Jennifer

  1. So wait...the bitter budget pill that was supposed to take effect has been shunted off till after elections? Why am I not surprised?

    From what I've read the new tea party representatives will probably be reelected. And if the Senate makeup stays the same...the system that is so broken now, will probably be just as broken when it comes time to actually work out a budget. That should get interesting. fingers crossed.
