Republicans and Democrats are coming together to fund the government, but they will be pushing for concessions from President Barack Obama, who is still in the midst of crafting and signing a budget proposal.
There are $1.2 trillion in defense cuts and about $200 billion a year in non-defense cuts in the new year. Democrats also want $600 billion for health care and $4 billion in additional spending on domestic programs to help pay for their infrastructure agenda.

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said last week that no final decisions have been made yet on the spending deal, but he promised that it’s “definitive” before the week ends on Oct. 8 when lawmakers will return to Washington for a final vote.
Obama made his signature achievement last month, calling for $8 billion in discretionary spending to tackle the natio
