Last Minute Deal Avoids Default; SD Congresswoman Kristi Noem Votes No

A national default was avoided and the federal government reopened by a last minute vote in Congress last (Wednesday) night.

South Dakota Congresswoman Kristi Noem voted no on the final package, saying that she opposed it based on the continued deficit spending……

Noem says there were no winners, and damage all around………

The issue will come up again in January when the spending authority runs out again. Noem says budget discussion are already underway………

Republican Senator John Thune, and democratic Senator Tim Johnson both voted for the resolutions.
