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.
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.
The senate passed it yesterday. At least according to the news I read.
"The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first." ~ Thomas Jefferson
It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.
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!
