Trump, McConnell Urge Senate to OK Budget, Debt Deal

Thursday, 01 August 2019 10:31 AM

President Donald Trump and his Senate GOP allies are relying on lots of Democrat votes to propel a hard-won budget and debt deal to the finish line.

Passage of the measure Thursday would mark a drama-free solution to a worrisome set of Washington deadlines. It also would that Trump's allies and adversaries were able to set aside ideology in exchange for relative fiscal peace and stability.

The Senate vote expected later Thursday would send the legislation to Trump for his promised signature.

Trump pushed approval in a morning tweet:

Budget Deal is phenomenal for our Great Military, our Vets, and Jobs, Jobs, Jobs! Two year deal gets us past the Election. Go for it Republicans, there is always plenty of time to CUT!

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell urged passage in remarks from the chamber's floor Thursday morning.

The measure would permit the government to resume borrowing to pay all its obligations and sets an overall $1.37 trillion limit on agency budgets approved by Congress every year.

It would remove any prospect of a government shutdown in October or the return of automatic spending cuts.
