Key Excerpts:

"The Senate voted Tuesday to advance a bipartisan two-year budget deal – a move that puts Capitol Hill one step closer to a thaw in the fiscal wars that have paralyzed Washington. The chamber agreed 67-33 to cut off debate on the budget agreement reached by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) last week. Final passage is virtually guaranteed now and a vote is slated for no later than Wednesday. 'This deal is a compromise. It doesn’t tackle every one of the challenges we face as a nation, but that was never our goal,' Murray said. 'This bipartisan bill takes the first steps toward rebuilding our broken budget process and hopefully, toward rebuilding our broken Congress.'”
