Lawmakers Decide Not To Play Chicken This Year, OK Funding For Government Through September


Nobody had the balls to flirt with a government shut down.
Who'dathunk it?

Fucking weasels.

Lawmakers seal deal on $1-trillion government funding bill

Congressional Republicans and Democrats forged a hard-won agreement Sunday night on a $1-trillion-plus spending bill that would fund the day-to-day operations of virtually every federal agency through September, denying President Trump funding for a border wall and rejecting his cuts to popular domestic programs.

Aides to lawmakers involved in the talks announced the agreement after weeks of negotiations. It's expected to be made public Sunday night.

The catchall spending bill would be the first major piece of bipartisan legislation to advance during Trump's short tenure in the White House. Though he lost his battle to fund the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, Trump won a $15-billion down payment on his request to strengthen the military.

The measure funds the remainder of the 2017 budget year, rejecting cuts to popular domestic programs targeted by Trump, such as medical research and infrastructure grants. Trump obtained $1.5 billion for border security measures such as additional detention beds.

These fuckers haven't passed a true budget in over a decade now.
If they worked in the private sector they would be unemfuckingployed yesterday and rightfully so.
