US Budget: Funding Deal Reached to Avert Shutdown
After several years in control of tje nation’s legislature the GOP still can’t seem to fathom how to do the basic job of keeping our government working. This is what happens when “alternate facts” drive discussions and debate.
The reported $1 trillion deal (£770bn) needs to be approved by lawmakers.
On Friday Congress approved a stop-gap spending bill that averted a government shutdown at midnight on that day.
That gave Congress one more week to work out federal spending for the last five months of the fiscal year.
Lawmakers are expected to vote on the package in the coming days.
