    Congress on Thursday approved a short-term spending bill to avoid a partial government shutdown, punting the thorny debate over border wall funding and other issues until later in the month.

    The stopgap spending bill, which was swiftly approved by the Senate after passage early Thursday afternoon in the House, would fund the government through Dec. 21.

    Congress had faced a Friday deadline to reach a budget agreement, but lawmakers decided to effectively delay that fight amid this week’s services for the late President George H.W. Bush. President Trump is expected to sign the measure.

    But the disagreements are far from resolved.

    Nice job Paul Ryan. That guy, Flake and can’t be gone fast enough as far as I’m concerned.

    Dont worry

    Flake will probably get hired by CNN as the "conservative" on their talk shows
    Ryan is moving to K Street getting ready to start cashing those lobbyist paychecks

    As usual, the worthless bastards let the budget deadline sneak up on them again. There's a shocker.

    Either Trump gets money for the wall or shut that shithole down.

    What could possibly go wrong with nearly 22 trillion in debt?
