McConnell Cheers Big Budget Deal

Senate Lawmakers Hold Their Weekly Policy Lunches

(Washington, DC) - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is cheering the big budget deal that has been struck by the White House and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Talking with reporters at the Capitol Tuesday, McConnell called it the best deal possible under the circumstances of "divided government."

 

The bipartisan deal covers government spending for two years. It also raises the federal debt ceiling.

The deal must be approved by the full House and Senate and signed into law by President Trump.
