The Senate *double checks notes* came to a compromise on the debt ceiling and spending bills yesterday.
The D’s and R’s have been in a stand-off over passing a bill that keeps our government funded to avoid a shutdown.
The original version was a 2400 page behemoth that provided funding for the government, but also raised the debt limit. Republicans said, “it’s a no from me dawg” to raising the debt limit and asked for them to split the two apart – one spending bill (that they’ll pass), one debt limit bill (that they won’t pass).
Historically, whoever holds the senate majority gets to pad these crucial bills with items that fit their agenda.
The House voted to suspend the US debt limit with a vote at 219-212, but it’ll probably fail when it reaches the Senate.
Not here to talk about the irony of the government running out of money is every student in college debt.
Being a Christian in a country that is always so politically divided means constant reminders to follow Jesus, not people.
“Older men are to be level headed, worthy of respect, sensible, and sound in faith, love, and endurance.” Titus 2:2
The world teaches us to worry, to fret, to get caught up in the mayhem. But Christian living says to keep a level head.
As the debates continue for the debt ceiling bill, Secretary Janet Yellen reminded Congress that they only have about 3 weeks to make a decision (unless they all want to work for free).
Making matters messier, no one can agree on an exact amount that it makes sense to go further into debt, so just like crypto currency, it probably doesn’t do any good to check the prices they’ve landed on every few hours.
Current National Debt: $28.43 Trillion
