Missed it By That Much

I have some unfortunately news to report, the federal government will not be shutting down:

The US Senate has passed a resolution that provides money to fund the US government and end fears of a shutdown.

I don’t know about you but a government shutdown has never been something I’ve feared. To be honest I welcome such joyous events because it does well to demonstrate the fact that we can survive without our government.

Even though this news is depressing there is a silver lining, they only approved enough money to run through November 18th:

The new funding will last until 18 November once passed by the House.

I’m doubting the Democrats and Republicans will fight hard enough over the next budget proposal to shut everything down but there is always hope.
