Democrats don't like GOP plan to postpone shutdown
WASHINGTON, April 5
WASHINGTON, April 5 (Reuters) - A Republican plan that would give negotiators another week to craft a budget deal and avoid a government shutdown is unacceptable to Democrats, a congressional aide said on Tuesday.
The proposal, released late Monday night, would fund the government on a temporary basis for one more week beyond Friday, when current funding runs out. It also would cut $12 billion from current levels.
