Looks like the shutdown has been averted. For now. We can always shut it down when the next CR fails to pass.

And I’m not really joking about that.

Fox says that this will buy time to pass a bill to fund the government through the rest of the fiscal year, but with this much partisan bickering over ~2% of the budget, I don’t see any way they’re going to be able to hammer out an agreement before they run out of money again.

But hey, at least the military is going to get paid.

Honestly, I didn’t expect them to agree on anything; I was looking forward to some quality demagoging on the shutdown and who hates whom more.
