Budget Battle continues in Washington
WASHINGTON -- Today it was the democratic lead senate's turn to pass a plan to keep the government funded through mid-November.
They amended the bill the house passed last week - and put funding for Obamacare back in.
It was a straight party line vote - no republicans voted for it.
That sets up a showdown with house republicans, just days before the deadline.
I hope we'll have another chance to deal with this again because this only gets worse from here for the American people and for the middle class and for people that are trying to get ahead.
If the government does shut down on October 1st federal workers will be forced to stay home, museums and national parks will be closed and some government services will stop.
