Congress Fails to Avert Another Shutdown

“A government shutdown will begin at midnight. The Senate has recessed until 12:01 a.m. without passing a spending bill,” the Washington Post reports.

“The Senate planned to vote early Friday morning on a spending bill that would pour billions of dollars into the military and domestic programs while keeping the government operating.”

“The fate of the bill was uncertain in the House, where conservatives balked at adding billions to the nation’s debt and liberals demanded action on protecting young undocumented immigrants from deportation.”
