Shutdown Likely as Paul Prevents Budget Vote

“The federal government on Thursday night slid toward at least a brief shutdown as a single Republican senator, Rand Paul of Kentucky, held off a vote on a far-reaching budget deal that would stave it off,” the New York Times reports.

“Angered at the huge spending increases at the center of the deal, Mr. Paul delayed the vote for hours with a demand to hold a vote on an amendment.”
