Reid, McConnell Announce Deal to End Shutdown, Avert Default; Cruz Will Not Delay Vote (Video)

Updated 12:30 p.m. | Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., joined on the Senate floor Wednesday afternoon to formally announce a deal to reopen the government and extend the debt limit.

No senators are expected to object to expediting the path forward for the legislation.

“The eyes of the world have been on Washington all this week, and that is a gross understatement,” Reid said. “And while they witnessed a great deal of political discord, today they’ll also see Congress reach a historic bipartisan agreement to reopen the government and avert a default on the nation’s bills.

“It’s never easy for two sides to reach consensus. … This time was really hard, but after weeks spent facing off across a partisan divide that often seemed too wide to cross, our country came to the brink of disaster, but in the end political adversaries set aside their differences and disagreements to prevent that disaster,” Reid said.

In his own remarks, McConnell said that it remains important to maintain the spending reductions contained in the Budget Control Act, which he has repeatedly called a top priority.

“What the BCA showed is that Washington can cut spending. And because of this law, that’s just what we’ve done. For the first time since the Korean War, government spending has declined for two years in a row. That’s the first time in 50 years,” McConnell said. “And we’re not going back on this agreement.”

The announcement, which was expected as early as when the Senate convened at high noon, was delayed just a bit as McConnell huddled behind closed doors with the Republican conference to brief members on the agreement.

The Senate vote could very well come today. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was among those saying they had no intention of holding up the process after leaving the meeting with McConnell.

“I don’t intend to delay the timing of the vote. I intend to vote no,” Cruz said. He also said leadership never really asked his intentions regarding a possible objection.

“I think we’re likely to move something today,” Pennsylvania Republican Patrick J. Toomey said.

The deal is essentially the same as Roll Call reported last night. But in a recent development, sequester flexibility for departments and agencies is expected to be left out of the agreement, a source familiar with the agreement said.

The measure will include retroactive pay for furloughed federal employees, as well as other provisions outlined Tuesday night.

    White Americans should be proud of the Senate as they have done it. They saved us again from the brink of disaster by postponing real decisions again.

        Probably as much as Obama being black has to do with the opposition he has been met with. Probably as much as the talk of the confederate flag outside the White House represents racial hate rather than independence from government tyranny
        But we will here more of the talk of race being why there is opposition to the president.

          Let’s see: Obama is the most popular political figure and the GOP just set a record for low-approval ratings… And the Tea Party polls even lower. Why can’t you accept the fact that our democracy has spoken and your side lost? Is it really that hard to show some class and dignity?

            No I understand completely that this is the government your side wants.
            Your side doesn’t mind having the corporations, politicians and their friends getting exemptions.
            Your side want to raise the debt.
            Your side want NSA, IRS spying on individuals.
            Your side is accepting the destruction of the disability insurance system, government departments spending their budgets the week the shut down began as normal government.
            With Obama’s election government was supposed to change. We get more of the same. We get pushing debts down the road so we can keep the theater going while at the same time pushing up the debt. This is the government you won for the rest of us. OK. You won you want this. Nothing i can do about it.

    “For the first time since the Korean War, government spending has declined for two years in a row. That’s the first time in 50 years,” McConnell said”

    Did T-baggers notice this? President Obama has reduced government spending for 2 years in a row. He didn’t increase spending. He reduced it.


    So what McConnell is saying is, no GOP President in the last 50-60 years has succeeded in reducing spending, but Obama has.

    That is fascinating stuff!

      The only reason spending fell is because the Republicans controlled the House since 2011.

      And how stupid do you think WE are?? Obama and the Democrats were running TRILLION DOLLAR / YR deficits – doubling our national debt in the process.
      How TOUGH is THAT to reduce?? Thank God for the GOP House or we wouldn’t have even that 2% reduction.

        Or maybe if we had never bought into GOP deregulation efforts (remember the Orwellian ‘Financial Modernization’ that removed safeguards put in place in the 1930’s?), or lowered taxes while starting simultaneous unnecessary wars, we would be swimming in surplus.

        Literally swimming…

          What part of the Democrat’s Great Recession have you missed? Obama is still down 8,000,000 since he took office. We have the most Americans EVER unemployed, the most EVER in poverty and fewer than half our minority students graduating HIGH SCHOOL!! That’s his legacy to date.
          I’ll give you the trillion each the CBO gives as the cost of both the “unnecessary wars” – thank God 9/ll didn’t happen – which still leaves $15 TRILLION our children and grandchildren are going to have to pay the tab for without even getting a vote on their future. Absolutely, totally immoral.

            Take aways from the shutdown:
            Refusal of Senate Democrats to bury our fallen war heroes. Closure of the “open air” WWII and Lincoln Memorials for the first time in history. The take over of national parks by the state governments. The “sequester cuts” made permanent and, this is the one that will kill the Democrats:
            “A Pew Research poll released Tuesday found that Republicans hold a 7 percentage point advantage over Democrats — 44 percent to 37 percent — on dealing with the economy and a 3-point advantage — 42 percent to 39 percent — on managing the government. “

            OK. Silly and very strange things to blame on dems since by far more people blame the GOP for shutdown, but I’ll grant the poll results are very interesting.

    Harry Reid running the U.S. Federal government is pretty much what a Mitt Romney administration would have looked like…which is why even Barry was able to win re-election. For all those in celebration mode, sorry to rain on your parade, but the future of Obamacare is growing more doubtful by the day, Barry’s incompetence and intransigence has not gone down well wirh we the people, and the inflammatory rhetoric by leading Dems and their media mavens has disgusted a whole lot more. All this minor delay has accomplished is to give the loyal opposition time to digest lessons learned and work on a winning strategy for the next go around. Dems lose the senate in 2014, states become more adept at pushing for devolution of Federal power and asserting their own sovereignty more aggressively, and Barry grows increasingly irrelevant both at home and abroad. Oh, and Barry’s old ACORN cronies get investigated for coming back to the government feeding trough in the guise of Obamacare navigators.
