Congress passed a budget...first time since 2009. Pres is expected to sign tomorrow or early saturday.

I was really beginning to think we wouldn't ever have a federal budget again.

Great, and the journey to $20 trillion in debt continues.

I saw that the House passed a spending bill/budget, but they've passed several before. We'll see if it gets through the Senate.

I am really glad that they successfully passed a budget deal that isn't to bad. It still increases the debt but it's at least a starting point. Also another good thing is that the exchange rate is really good now for me when I am converting to Philippine Peso. So more pesos for a dollar.

Wonders will never cease. Now here is hoping that they can slowly get their collective heads out of their asses long enough to start cutting spending so we can get the damn defficit down!
