BREAKING: Senate passes budget deal

Washington (CNN)–The Senate on Thursday passed the budget deal worked out last week to keep the government funded for the rest of the fiscal year while cutting $38.5 billion.

The measure, which the House passed earlier in the day, now goes to President Barack Obama’s desk to be signed.

    I'm sure that everyone who is going to have to learn to do with less is very pleased to hear this.

    Especially the Wealthiest 2%. They have to do without higher taxes.
