WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A bipartisan budget deal aimed at avoiding future government shutdowns cleared a key U.S. House of Representatives panel on Wednesday, making way for a vote by the full chamber as early as Thursday. The House Rules Committee, by a 9-3 vote, approved the rules governing debate of the $85 billion, two-year budget deal. The Republican-controlled committee refused to allow Democrats to offer an amendment that would have extended federal jobless benefits that are set to expire at the end of December.
