It looks like Congress will kick the budget can down the road, again.
Since Oct. 1, when the 2018 fiscal year began, the U.S. has been operating on temporary funding provided by a "continuing resolution" passed by Congress and signed by President Donald Trump. It runs through Dec. 8, and leaders in Congress are negotiating an extension. At the same time, they’re juggling demands from various factions in both parties to stabilize insurance markets, extend a program to protect from deportation some young people brought to the U.S. illegally as children, and raise budget caps for defense spending.
