 with the Capitol awash in election-year politics and shadowed by the contentious presidential race and engulfed in a fierce battle for control of the Senate, the simplest task became a nearly impossible heavy lift impeded by needless delays and bitter finger-pointing.
Republicans, defending a fragile Senate majority and eager to get a handful of vulnerable incumbents back home to campaign for re-election, accused Minority Leader Harry Reid of holding up a deal to keep GOP lawmakers off the campaign trail.
Democrats denied it but lobbed their own allegations, all but accusing Republicans of racism for holding up money for people affected by lead-tainted water in predominantly black Flint, the final sticking point in the talks.
Yet even as they stumbled to a messy solution at close to the last possible moment — the deadline was midnight Friday — some lawmakers were already looking ahead to next year, when much weightier tasks await the next Congress and a new president in what may be an even more fraught era of divided government.
Lawmakers will need to revisit major programs that are ripe for battles including the Children's Health Insurance Program under Medicaid, payments to hospitals and community health centers, expiring tax credits for a range of industries, a reauthorization of the Federal Aviation Administration, the annual defense policy bill, as well as the annual budgeting process.
Russia cannot be ignored.
Since the end of the Cold War, Russia has never posed such a vexing problem to U. S. policymakers as it does now.
 the Obama administration has been forced to accept that working with Russia is probably the only way to achieve results on many complicated international issues.
 Russia was central in the Iran nuclear negotiations and is a player as well as negotiator in the Syria truce effort.
 one of Hillary Clinton's first initiatives as secretary of state in 2009 was to "reset" relations with Moscow, an effort that produced decidedly mixed results.
More people are seeking or casting early ballots in the critical states of North Carolina and Florida than at this point in 2012, with Hillary Clinton the likely benefactor, as early voting shows signs of surging nationwide.
Clinton may also benefit from an increase in ballot requests in Georgia, a traditionally Republican state where Democrats have made inroads.
Traditionally Republicans have done better initially with early mail-in ballots, before Democrats surpass them once in-person early voting begins.
Though preliminary, data compiled by The Associated Press suggest that advance voting could reach 40 percent of all votes cast nationally — up from 35 percent in 2012.
In Ohio, nearly 806,000 voters had submitted absentee ballot applications.
In Greensboro, North Carolina, Brandon Starkes, 28, cited the state's unsuccessful bid to impose a voter ID law in his decision to vote early.
 in 2012, Republicans had opened a wide lead over Democrats in returned ballots, 49 percent to 32 percent, leading to Mitt Romney's narrow win that state.
Trump is counting on that district's one electoral vote as part of his narrow path to the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.
 his words — by design or coincidence — mirror the nub of a policy argument the administration is wrestling with in the final months of Barack Obama's presidency.
Asked at this week's debate whether he supports the decades-old U. S. policy of refusing to rule out being the first to use nuclear weapons, Trump at first said, "I would certainly not do first strike."
During a Republican primary debate he was asked his view on modernizing the three main elements of the U.
When President Barack Obama was hit with the first veto override of his presidency on Wednesday, it landed as a clear reminder of his dwindling political influence, years of confounding relationships with Congress and shaky prospects for the few legislative priorities he has left.
Only one of his 44 fellow Democrats in the Senate — Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada — stood by Obama to uphold his veto of a piece of Sept.
