  •  Both houses of congress have passed budgets, (0+ / 0-)

    but Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Mitch McConnell have refused to allow the senate budget to go to conference unless the committee is prohibited from including the debt limit in the final bill.  They want to keep debt limit "negotiations" separate and open to demands for budget cuts.  Since the president has stated that he will not negotiate over raising the debt limit, this will make for some interesting conference committee negotiations (if McConnell even allows conferees to be assigned from the senate) and debt limit talks next fall.
