Trump and Dems collaborate to keep the government running

A deal struck by Democrats and Donald Trump will keep the government open for three more months. The deal, which was proposed by Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, raises the federal debt ceiling, thereby allowing continued government expenditure until the issue of government funding is revisited in December. If the federal debt ceiling had not been raised, there would have been a government shutdown where government workers and entities could not function without any funding. This deal was packaged along with a substantial disaster aid package designated to help relief and recovery efforts in Houston after Hurricane Harvey. Many Republicans are shocked that Trump cut the deal, especially since substantially raising federal spending for short-term periods of time typically goes against conservative standpoints.

  1. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog audience have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?
