Well, it seems the idiots in the senate have voted on the Continuing Resolution and opened the government back up.
I do not understand why they had to shut it down, other than optics...nothing has changed, except Mitch shortened it by 1 week. I know they want DACA, but it was looking bad for those who voted Friday to shut it down. Americans citizens getting laid off to save 800,000 DACA "kids". And there was no deadline on DACA, because a district court judge ruled against the president. At least now, CHIP will be funded for the next 6 years.

16 days away from the next potential shutdown. Supposedly the temporary funding was set with a promise from both sides to address all the issues.
Balanced budgets are a thing of long past they don't even get mentioned anymore.

Was CLinton the last balanced or did he eliminate the debt?
