(Worthy News) - With just 16 days before temporary government funding runs out once again for a quarter of the U.S. government, talks between House and Senate negotiators showed little sign of progress on the stickiest of issues: border wall funding.
The meeting lasted a little over an hour and then House members left town on Wednesday for another five days, with no new talks on the calendar. Aides to negotiators said staff would continue to work behind the scenes.
While the tone was notably more civil -- a marked departure from the rhetoric of recent weeks -- members largely talked at or past one another. [ Source: ABC News (Read More...) ]
