Second Government Shutdown was Brief

Congress managed to pass a budget deal early Friday morning after a brief government shutdown, brought to you by Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul—the second shutdown in three weeks. President Trump signed the bill shortly after.

The two-year deal raises spending caps on domestic and military spending by $300 billion and lifts the federal debt limit until March 2019, according to The New York Times. It keeps the federal government funded for six weeks, so we can all come back together and do this again in a little under two months.
