Breaking A Senate Bill Passed A Test Vote To Keep The Government Open

The swirl of lies, deception, and deals has begun. A potential government shutdown is once again on the horizon. However, a senate bill just passed a “test” vote, this bill could keep the government open until December 11th. This bill has yet to be truly rolled out, and has yet to pass the house.

A Senate bill to keep the government open past midnight Wednesday cleared a procedural hurdle on Monday. The bill would fund the federal government through Dec. 11. Without a funding extension, the federal government would partially shut down on Oct. 1. Monday’s 77-to-19 vote sets up a vote on final passage in the Senate. The House would also need to vote on the bill.

Yes but will congress pass it? Probably not. They just want to calm people possibly.
