House passes budget deal

The House voted 332 to 94 to pass the bipartisan budget deal.

It brings us one step closer to avoiding a government shutdown and a rare break from Washington gridlock.

But plenty of Democrats and Republicans still have some hangups about the bill as it heads to the Senate.

    I don't really care what the House does, but it would be nice if 'we' knew what's in the bill and what's being cut. If the House has passed the bill then there surely must be cuts in Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

      Actually this passed because 2014 is Re-Election time. The fools will vote for the same people to do nothing and argue more. So the PORK you find in this bill is going to buy the fools votes.

    Where is the meat and potaqties?
    Where are the details on the budget?
    As for Vets, this is disgraceful. Again the defenseless (a pun for congress that claims it is concerned with defense) are to suffer.

    Where is the meat and potatoes? What are the areas and dollars for the cuts and tax increase(?) if any? Is this a Hide and Seek game on congress part? I would like to see details and the balance approach that I hear was used.

    "Thank you, thank you & may the lord bless them, because the country's getting stronger every single day, and not shooting ourselves in the foot is a very good thing not to do. If we keep on doing this, collaborating, I think America will really start to grow rapidly... It's the right thing to do morally, but if you talk about economically? A lot of economists will tell you if we did pass that bill, it'll increase the growth in America by 0.5-1% per yr for 10 yrs.

    That will eliminate so many issues and problems. That will create so many jobs. It would be the best thing possible, and it's morally right." (Jamie Dimon)
