This year WTAMU's budget will take a substantial hit. The budget at the university will be cut by more that $3 million dollars this year. Most of the 8,000 students attending school there will not see their tuition increase.
President Barack Obama said Sunday night that he and Congressional leaders had reached a debt deal that cuts trillions in federal spending. The debt ceiling plan was set to face a vote on Monday in hopes of enacting it before a Tuesday deadline, thus averting default, The New York Times reported.
The debt has reached a breaking point and the United States is losing it's credit rating with the rest of the world. If they can not reach an agreement on spending cuts and budget, it could be real trouble for the United States as well as the citizens.
