via Government shutdown negotiations are starting to careen off the rails – AOL News

Congressional negotiations on averting a partial shutdown of the federal government are starting to look a lot more difficult.

The conservative House Freedom Caucus is threatening to hold up a short-term extension of the federal government’s funding, with the deadline for a shutdown looming on December 8.

GOP leadership in both the House and Senate want to pass a bill that would push that deadline until December 22 to provide more time for negotiations with Democrats, but the Freedom Caucus wants to move the deadline to December 30.
