speaker, budget, deal“I’ll get there,” the speaker told Politico. The budget agreed upon for the rest of fiscal 2011, which ends Sept. 30, cuts spending by $38 billion.

Rep. Rob Andrews, D-N.J., said the bill has enough Democratic support that “I don’t see any chance that this fails unless the bottom falls out with the House Republicans.”
