Saved From Government Shutdown

For the sake of our soldiers, sailors and 800,000 “non-essential” federal employees, it’s good that a deal was reached to avoid a government shutdown. It’s too bad the Republicans had to accepted far fewer spending cuts than they had originally proposed. But they need to be commended for compromising so that government continues to operate.

You can breathe a sigh of relief for now. But then you’d better take a deep breath and get prepared. This week there will likely be some debate over the deal before the votes take place. Then come the big battles: whether to raise the debt ceiling when we reach our credit limit within the next month and the Fiscal 2012 budget.
