The House of Representatives passed a bill of 400 billion dollars on Friday morning, aimed at ending the halt of some federal government activities.

Legislators voted with 240 votes versus 186 to approve the current bill sent to President Donald Trump for signing. However, this budget will only fund the government until March 23. After that the legislators had to draft a detailed budget plan for the rest of the fiscal year that ended on September 30.

American Government Activities closed Friday morning (9/2), as Congress passed a deadline to extend the federal government funding. This is the closing of part of a second government operation in less than a month. The Senate then decided with 71 votes versus 28 to reopen the federal government's activities.

Senator Rand Paul from the Republican fraction late on Thursday (8/2) hampered the efforts of both factions to pass a bill to keep the wheels of government running, before the federal funds expire.

Paul from Kentucky objected to the Senate holding a vote on the draft budget for two years, which will increase the military and domestic budgets of hundreds of billions of dollars. He said the budget would bolster the already rising federal deficit and increase the national debt of more than 20 trillion dollars.

"With honesty and good faith, I am against voting for this design," Paul said in a long, fire in the Senate, as time grew thinner for Congress to avoid closing some of the less important federal government operations. "There is a 700-page legislation printed in the middle of the night and no one has read it yet … nothing will be renewed, the waste will continue," he said.

Paul's attitude invited a fellow senator's anger from the Republican fraction, from South Carolina, who said the American military desperately needs additional funding after years of budgetary restrictions, which hamper domestic and Pentagon programs.

"Debts and deficits are no excuse for letting the military go wild. I will do anything that will defend our military, "he said. [uh]

[19659003] Many members of Congress from the Democratic Party, as well as some Republican members opposed the vote on the draft budget law without any agreement on immigration.
