According to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, the Senate has reached an agreement to move forward on Thursday, and prevent a government shutdown starting on Friday, October 1.
"We are ready to move forward," the Democrat leader said on Wednesday. "We have an agreement on the C.R., the continuing resolution to prevent a government shutdown and we should be voting on that [Thursday] morning."
The Senate will vote on a continuing resolution would fund the government through Dec. 3.
The federal government's budget is based on a fiscal year rather than a calendar year and runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30.
He said the agreement with Republican senators came as Democrats accepted amendments that suspend raising the nation's debt ceiling through 2022, something the GOP said they would oppose unless it was stripped from any funding resolution.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said it is now up to the Democrats, who have majorities in both the House and Senate, as well as the White House, to pass the debt ceiling increase on their own, without support from his party.
The country has until about Oct. 18 to increase the limit before going into default, according to U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, who said the agency has been using financial "tricks" to postpone the date for the ceiling to be raised.
The biggest conflict between both parties agreeing is that there are two huge spending bills that the Democrats are attempting to push through together, which include free college tuition and expanding Medicare. Neither of which would be a good thing. Just a waste of more money.
Several Senate Republicans agreed to support a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, but balk at a concurrent $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill with a large amount of Democrat wish list items that would address climate change among several other new social programs.
As for the larger $3.5 trillion plan, President Joe Biden has claimed that it will cost taxpayers "zero" dollars....which we all know is a lie.
I will not be surprised if we do have a government shutdown.
