The Trump administration and congressional leaders, including the Democrats, have reached a critical debt and budget agreement that almost eliminates the risk of another government closing down in the fall. The announced Monday night agreement, requiring Congressional approval, would increase spending limits by $ 320 billion over the 2011 Budgetary Control Act, whose provisions affect expenditure control. In addition, the debt ceiling would be suspended and until 31 July 2021 – after the next presidential elections – the government would allow further loans.
The compromise is said to have angered Democrat Senator Patrick J. Leahy, the highest-ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, who stated that the bill would not prevent Trump from spending money on his planned limit.
"I'm worried that the house is ready to give it too much discretion to take money and take it everywhere, including a wall," said Leahy, D-Vt., Opposite the Washington Post. "As it is now, I will not vote for it … The other 99 can vote for it, I will not."
However, in a statement, Leahy later said he would "support the bill." because it "raises the debt ceiling for the next two years and averts the economic catastrophe" and "reverses unsustainable cuts in non-defense discretionary spending."
Leahy added, "I understand that there is a policy statement among congressional leaders and the White House, and I have many concerns about its content. "
Ultimately, domestic programs would grow on average by 4 percent in the first year of the pact, with much of the profits consumed by veterans increasing and an unavoidable increase for the US census." The defense would amount to $ 738 billion next year. [3,659,002] President Trump would retain the flexibility to transfer money between accounts, which would increase the possibility of transferring barriers to the construction of border barriers.

But Georgian Republican Senator David Perdue (R -GA) told Fox News that spending limits on sequestration "have never accomplished their mission".
"It would be a big mistake if the republican leadership agreed."
"I would blow 'em up," Perdue said. "Compulsory expenses have skyrocketed."
Despite the mixed reception on Capitol Hill, the president and some congressmen were excited about the deal.
"I am pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached with the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senator for the Senate Chuck Schumer, Chairman of the House Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Chairman Kevin McCarthy – on a two-year budget and debt ceiling "without poison pills," Trump tweeted .
He added, "This was a true compromise to give our Great Military and Veterinarians another big victory!"
In a statement, Pelosi, D-Calif., And Schumer, DN.Y. The compromise agreement will "improve our national security and invest in the middle class".
"The Democrats are also pleased to have secured solid funding for critical domestic priorities in this agreement," they said. "The Democrats have always insisted on maintaining parity on the increase between defense and non-defense, and we are pleased that we have increased the number of our non-defense budgetary agencies by $ 10 billion in the next two years that the Democrats have raised more than US $ 100 billion in domestic priorities since President Trump took office. "
Democrats celebrated that the domestic non-military budget would receive larger gains under the new agreement than that Defense Budget Compared to last year, Democrats also praised the $ 2.5 billion allocation for the 2020 census after the fierce struggle to include a citizenship question in the survey.

The deal also comes from budget deficits rising to $ 1 trillion, and the government for every dollar the government spends, despite the flourishing economy and three rounds Borrowing a quarter from annual Trump budget proposals promising to crack down on Pelosi's defended national programs, Conservatives said the nation's spending is unsustainable and would ultimately affect the economy.
"This agreement represents a complete relief for Congress and the President of fiscal responsibility," said Maya MacGuineas, president of the Responsible Federal Budget Committee. a Washington Advocacy Group. "It could become the worst budget agreement in the history of our country, which was proposed at a time when our fiscal conditions are already precarious."
For his part, McConnell said he "praised" Trump for having pulled the deal.  "I am very encouraged that the administration and Speaker Pelosi have signed a two-year funding agreement that secures the resources we need to rebuild our armed forces," said McConnell, R-Ky. "This was our ultimate goal: Restoring the readiness of our armed forces and modernizing our military to fend off and defend growing threats to national security, including investing in our facilities here at home, such as Ft. Knox, Ft Campbell and the Blue Grass Army Depot, which proudly hosts my state of Kentucky. "
The prospects for an agreement that McConnell had been giving for months had improved much as Pelosi returned to Washington this month and aggressively pursued the pact with Secretary of State Steven Mnuchin, who was appointed chief negotiator instead of more conservative options such as Mick Mulvaney, the acting chief of staff of the White House, or Russell Vought, the chief executive officer.
