Budget Deal Unlikely

It looks like the month will run out before Congress can come up with any budget deal. That means the government could potentially run out of money on October first. South Dakota Senator John Thune says it looks like another continuing resolution will be needed…

Thune says the budget could evolve into what he calls some “big debates”…

Thune says the continuing resolution could then slide right into a debate over extending the debt ceiling…

House republicans are split now over defunding the Affordable Care Act as part of the budget agreement.
