    After temporary shutdown, Congress passes two-year spending deal

    After temporary shutdown, Congress passes two-year spending deal

    In the end, a bipartisan cohort of lawmakers supported the $400 billion agreement. Shortly after 1:30 a.m. ET, the Senate voted, 71-28, to approve a two-year spending bill that would reopen the government, and the House passed it at 5:30 a.m. with the support of 240 members.

    The spending deal was hammered out between the Republican and Democratic Senate leaders. It increases domestic spending by $131 billion and defense spending by $165 billion over the next two years and suspend the debt limit for one year until well after the midterm elections.
    Cut taxes, increase spending, and suspend the debt limit until after the elections. That's the current plan.

    Because there were tax cuts they have to fight kicking and screaming to increase spending as much as possible to offset the taxes.
