Budget, debt deal teed up for Senate passage, Trump signing

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump and his Senate GOP allies are relying on lots of Democratic votes to propel a hard-won budget and debt deal to the finish line.

Passage of the measure Thursday would mark a drama-free solution to a worrisome set of Washington deadlines. It also would that Trump’s allies and adversaries were able to set aside ideology in exchange for relative fiscal peace and stability.

The Senate vote expected later Thursday would send the legislation to Trump for his promised signature.

It’s a relief to know politicians can still unite to do things. Unfortunately, it only seems to happen when they are spending our money.

  4. Of course Trump will sign the bill. He is a “Republican” after all. The entire GOP should be ashamed of themselves.

  7. Republicans only care about the deficit when there’s a democratic president.

  8. This will change when the media blames the Democrats for a government shutdown. Meaning, it will never change.

  9. Politicians are not your friends. At all. Ever.

  10. 9. Even when they’re dubbed “not a politician.”

  11. 2… you’ve got the solution for one of biggest problems facing Blue cities nationwide.

    Excellent work!
