Congress begins to admit it’s running out of time to avoid a government shutdown

As the deadline to prevent a government shutdown draws nearer, Congress is beginning to acknowledge that it’s running out of time and that a shutdown could be inevitable. Despite attempts from both Republicans and Democrats to reach an agreement, negotiations have stalled. While both sides remain optimistic that they can strike a deal, the clock is ticking and time is running short. Without an agreement, the government is set to run out of funding on December 11th, and thousands of federal workers could be furloughed.
