Congress Strikes Deal to Fund Government…For Now - ABC News

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker John Boehner today announced a six-month agreement to avert a government shutdown. But the deal punts a larger spending battle to next January after whoever gets elected this November takes office. “We’ve got an agreement,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said today following the Democrats weekly caucus lunch. “This is very good, because we can resolve these critical issues that directly affect the country soon as the election’s over and move on to do good things. It puts this out of the way, and that’s very important.” Congress will not pass the legislation before the August recess, but leaders said they expect to vote on it shortly after returning from a five-week recess September 10. … Current funding runs out on Sept 30, leaving just eight legislative days on the House schedule after Labor Day to get something passed through both chambers.

For six months… 

We’re living on the edge of a cliff…
