Nov. 13, 1995, to Nov. 19, 1995 (Five days): The Republican-controlled Congress passed a budget bill that raised Medicare premiums and required a balanced budget in seven years, which President Bill Clinton vetoed. An agreement was made to partially fund the government until a compromise was reached, and Clinton agreed to balance the busget within seven years.
