US Congress averted federal state paralysis

Congress removed a thorn from Joe Biden’s side by adopting a temporary budget this Thursday in extremis to avoid the paralysis of federal services. By 254 votes to 175, the House of Representatives approved a finance law extending the current budget until December 3, already passed earlier by the Senate with a comfortable majority. The Democratic President must now promulgate it before midnight in order to prevent the funding of federal state services from being suddenly cut.
