Budget deal reached; shutdown avoided

The headline:  Shutdown avoided, White House, Congress cheer deal

The summary:  Working late into the night, Democrats and Republicans came to a budget agreement that will extend through September and will include around $38 billion in spending cuts.

The reaction:  It’s about time!  The fact that it got this far was a bit surprising but at least lawmakers came to their senses and did the right thing even if it was at the last minute.

The blame game will undoubtedly continue as both sides will want to say the other is at fault for the impasse but for right now at least the deal got done and the government will continue operating.
