McConnell Expects a Budget Deal Today

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said in a floor speech today that he “believes there will be an agreement on a funding package for fiscal year 2011 shortly, thus averting a government shutdown,” according to The Hill.

“Neither side actually wants one [a shutdown],” said McConnell. “And that’s why I believe there will be an agreement here shortly.”

"I have been in many negotiation over the years," he noted. "I assure you, these are not unresolvable issues. … A resolution is actually within reach.”
