Senate Reaches Budget Deal


congress-fiscal-bill-dealMazel tov! The Senate today reached a deal to end the government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling-and what’s more, House Speaker John Boehner is ready to push it forward in the House.

There’s no indication at this point that Republicans will block it.

The agreement funds the government through January 15, and raises the debt ceiling through February 7. A separate Senate motion is in the works to commit the two chambers to working on long-term revenue deal. Read more.

  1. This is all fool’s gold.

    Congress is basically capitulating to Obama in order to feed the bloated behemoth Federal Government’s huge avaricious appetite for taxpayer money.

    Tax and spend. Spend and tax. Bigger and bigger government. Our Federal budget deficit is $785 BILLION! Our national debt is $17 TRILLION! This is bleeding our nation dry. Government does not create wealth. There is only so much money out there. Yet nobody seems to care.

    At this rate of runaway spending, the United States is gravitating closer and closer to Greece. This is the leftist policy. This is YOUR Democrat party. THIS IS YOUR OBAMA!!!

    Wonder how you say “Mazel Tov” in greek?
