WASHINGTON, D.C. (WBKO) -- There has been a rare bi-partisan agreement on Capitol Hill concerning the national budget. If it passes, it will prevent a government shutdown for two years.
House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan and Senate Budget Chairwoman Patty Murray came up with the deal.
If approved, t would raise military and domestic spending to just over 1-trillion dollars over the next two years and get rid of about 65-billion dollars in spending cuts.
Taxes would not go up, but airline ticket fees would.
This deal does not address the debt ceiling. Congress will have to deal with that in the Spring.
The House and Senate will vote on the deal in the next two weeks.
The President is applauding the deal because it shows the parties can come together.
