US congressional “negotiators” agree to big-spending business as usual

“US Congressional negotiators reached a critical agreement on a massive spending bill which if approved by the House and Senate would fund the government through the end of September, a media report said. The bill would add billions for the Pentagon and border security [sic] but would not provide any money for President Donald Trump’s promised border wall with Mexico, official aides told CNN on Sunday night. Votes in both chambers are expected by the end of the week.” (05/01/17)
