Obama Signs Budget Pact

President Obama "broke from his vacation in Hawaii on Thursday to sign a stack of legislation that included the bipartisan budget deal and funding legislation for the Pentagon," The Hill reports.

"Many in Washington are hopeful that the budget agreement will pave the way for more bipartisan deal making in 2014 after one of the least productive years on record for Congress... But a number of contentious fiscal issues loom in 2014, including another fight over the debt ceiling, and there's no guarantee that the budget agreement will ward off another shutdown in January."
