Deal reached to avoid government shutdown until 2013
WASHINGTON, DC: The House, and its GOP contenders passed a tentative budget deal yesterday that helped the U.S avoid a government shut down, at least for a few more months.
The deal, isn’t exactly what conservative Republicans were hoping for — as many wanted steeper budget cuts, that took even more money away from Barack Obama’s healthcare law.
Final votes on the tentative deal will take place in Sept, whilst the new fiscal year begins Oct. 1st.
