Short Term Fiscal Deal Taking Shape

National Journal reports that House Republicans are preparing to “approve a short-term deal to raise the debt-ceiling and force Democrats to the negotiating table.”

“Details are still being ironed out, House Republicans said, but they are on track to approve a debt-limit extension — lasting between four and six weeks — that would establish a framework for subsequent fiscal negotiations. Lawmakers said this short-term deal, which President Obama has promised would compel him to join comprehensive talks over long-term fiscal issues, could pass as soon as Friday.”
