FY23 Federal Budget Meltdown? … Senator McConnell supports a vote on passing the federal budget before Christmas — when the Continuing Resolution for federal spending runs out >> A group of possibly 10 GOP senators and maybe a few more are pushing to block the federal budget vote until the new Congress comes into session.
The meltdown comes in that a delay would not result in new vote so much as a pledge in the House to disassemble the entire FY2023 budget and to rebuild it. >> NONE of this likely to happen but … but we live in amazing times. Dazing and amazing on some days.
