United States Successfully Come Out From the Shadow of Government Shutdown

U.S. House Speaker, John Boehner told members of the Republican Party that he had agreed with the White House to prevent government shutdown, about an hour from the remaining deadlines, officials said.

Two senior Senate assistant asserted that the Democratic parliamentarians and the White House have reached a comprehensive agreement to cut about 38.5 billion U.S. dollars expenditure on rest of the fiscal year ended October 1, 2011.

The agreement as a whole also remove what Democrats called the biggest stumbling block, namely a Republican effort to cut federal funds for family planning clinics that provide abortions.

In less than an hour, before the midnight deadline that triggered the government shutdown, the two sides also agreed in the short term to bridge the funding measures that Washington is still running for some time while the agreement was written.

The shadows of government shutdown, which will make government employees temporarily laid off and does not paid until the government and parliament to reach agreement about the state budget revenues and expenditures, has worried federal employees and their families.
