Congress Approves Bill to Fund Government Through December

Objectivity 3.8 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.2

Biden signed a bill that will fund the government through December 3rd to avoid a government shut down. “It meets critical and urgent needs of the nation,” Biden said referring to the $35 billion funds for natural disaster relief and Afghan refugee resettlement. However, Republicans in the Senate blocked a similar measure trying to raise the debt ceiling. Flashback to 2018 when $5 billion was absolutely insane for a border wall.
