Republicans and Democrats have finally found some common ground and struck a deal. It’s a hefty $1.66 trillion spending agreement, and they managed to pull it off just weeks before facing yet another funding deadline. Looks like they’re trying to keep the government wheels turning without any last-minute drama!

Republican and Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill have come together to finalize a substantial $1.66 trillion agreement for the US federal spending in 2024, a move aimed at steering Congress away from a potential costly government shutdown. Chuck Schumer, the Democratic Senate majority leader, and Mike Johnson, the Republican Speaker of the House, jointly announced this development on Sunday.


The agreement arrives less than two weeks before a critical budget deadline, although some skepticism has been expressed by certain Republican hardliners about the timely passage of the framework. Funding for various federal government components is scheduled to expire on January 19 and February 2, and more detailed budget bills need to be negotiated to avert disruptions.
