02 Jan Federal Budget Funded!- Is There A Hope For Veterans To Receive More Aid?
President Joe Biden signed a $1.7 trillion spending plan on Thursday. It will fund the federal government through the end of the fiscal year in September 2023 and give Ukraine extra aid worth tens of billions of dollars to help it battle the Russian military.
To prevent a partial government shutdown, Biden has until late Friday to approve the legislation.
Just before Christmas, the bill was approved by the Democratically-controlled House 225-201, primarily along partisan lines. The Senate, also governed by Democrats, voted 68-29 to pass the bill with much more Republican backing the day before the House vote.
The passage, according to Biden, is evidence that Democrats and Republicans can cooperate.
Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the leader of the House Republicans who aspire to become speaker when the new Congress convenes on Jan. 3, argued during floor discussion that the bill spends excessive amounts of money while making insufficient efforts to stop fentanyl imports from Mexico and illegal immigration.
