Congress Passes 45 Day “Stopgap” bill to prevent Government Shutdown
About three hours before a midnight deadline, the Senate overwhelmingly passed a bipartisan bill Saturday evening to keep the government funded for 45 days, on a vote of 88 to 9, just before a government shutdown was to go into effect.
The bill, which funds the government through Nov. 17, was signed into law by President Biden late Saturday night, the White House confirmed.
“Tonight, bipartisan majorities in the House and Senate voted to keep the government open, preventing an unnecessary crisis that would have inflicted needless pain on millions of hardworking Americans,” Mr. Biden said in a statement after the passage. “This bill ensures that active-duty troops will continue to get paid, travelers will be spared airport delays, millions of women and children will continue to have access to vital nutrition assistance, and so much more. This is good news for the American people.” (Hmm is it really good news?)
No Democratic senators voted against the measure, with all nine no votes from Republicans.
“It’s been a day full of twists and turns, but the American people can breath a sigh of relief,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor after the vote. “There will be no government shutdown.”
I’m surprised they didn’t let the government shutdown but they only extended things for 45 days to let some pressure off, probably by instruction of their quantum super computers. Expect more chaos, probably economic as well as greater drum beats for war in Ukraine meaning direct NATO involvement. NATO can’t hide active duty troops fighting and dying in Ukraine forever, eventually this war will spread out to NATO nations.
Keep your eyes focused on Christ and not on the chaos of this world. Be aware of what’s going on but not obsessed with it. In these times we need faith that can move mountains. Here is a link that can help you do that: https://biblereasons.com/faith// Blessings to you all.
