WASHINGTON – The likelihood is increased that the U.s. government again faced a shutdown. Rand Paul, a senator from the Republican party, does not agree with many of his colleagues on a new budget for the U.s. government.

The senator for the state of Kentucky has made use of its right to have the decision to postpone a debate about the expenditure. A minority of the Republicans against the increase of the public expenditure. Or before midnight (06: 00 Dutch time) an agreement in the Senate and the House of Representatives, is uncertain.

The Us Senate seemed to be Wednesday a begrotingsdeal to have closed for the next two years. A majority consisting of both Republicans and Democrats could agree to it. The proposed budget provides more money for defense and infrastructure, but in addition, leave space for social policy. In total, it concerns an expansion of the budget with almost $ 300 billion.

Paul Ryan, the leader of the Republicans in the House said earlier Thursday that he expected to be there for the deadline for a budget agreement.
