US Shutdown will end soon as US Congressmen passed the bill
Washington, US 18th October 2013:
Sixteen days have been passed when the major shutdown in the history of the great American economy had taken its root. Averting the biggest loss ever, the United States Congress has passed bill stopping the hiking of federal debt ceiling and hence, brings back the government rule on track. It took 11 hour to prepare the vital bill by Senate Majority leader Harry Reid and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell which was cleared by a vote of 81 to 18 in the meet of Senate. It was consequently cleared in the House of Representatives with 285-144 where both Republicans and Democrats casted their votes to make it pass. But a major part of the House of Republicans preferred to be against the bill.
Out of 532 elected officials 162 voted out against the proposal of re-opening the government bill overall which concluded 30.4 % of Congress. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz were among the Senators who did not take part in the voting. While addressing the press meet in the evening, President Obama welcomed that bill and showed his consent over signing the bill when it would be presented to him on desk. He said, “We’ll begin re-opening our government immediately.”
The bill has been crafted as a temporary measure for the moment to confront the crisis of federal debt default. As per bill, funds to the government will be available from January 15th of the coming year and the debt ceiling will be raised from February 7. By following the similar tactics next year also, the US government could be swept in a similar worse condition with in few months. In the meanwhile, two-party committee will be set-up to look into the matter of the underlying budget issues and is to submit its suggestions and recommendations on December 13th.
“There’s a lot of work ahead of us,” Obama said, “including our need to earn back the trust of the American people that’s been lost over the last few weeks.”
“GOOSE EGG, NOTHING, WE GOT NOTHING,” said the Representative Thomas H. Massie.
The sudden shutdown was an outcome of the failed attempt of the current government- in- rule to trim back or de-fund the Affordable Care Act as “Obamacare” and was brought into notice by House Republicans. Both parties are now under the immense pressure since the shutdown was going on and the debt is piling up as the deadline due to non-payment is at bulk large.
So far more House members came with the proposal to forward calling for a vote on a “clean CR” (a declaration that would provide fund to the government without connecting it to any ACA-related provisions. “That’s essentially what we’re doing now,” Representative Charlie Dent said, conveying further that such a bill needed to be passed by Congress week ago. “People can blame me all they want, but I was correct in my analysis and I’d say a lot of those folks were not correct in theirs.”
Now, President Obama has signed the proposed bill as per recent update.
