House passes spending bill

(CNN) - The House early Friday passed a continuing resolution to prevent a possible partial government shutdown after the current fiscal year ends on September 30.

The vote was 219 to 203.

    What is all this nonsense. This was an appropriations bill I believe that already passed the Senate with a huge majority and House amendments were voted down.
    The next step is reconciliation... they could have sensibly started that now as another weeks Holiday looms... smells familiar ? Anything to delay, delay, delay.

    Notice the article doesn't say that Reid says the bill is DOA in the senate. Say hello to the new party of of NO.

    I like how at least the house is able to tweak their plan quickly and get it over to the senate. Democrats seem to be falling behind here and failing to come up with anything on their own. Are they fine with being reactionary? We know where that got us before, and it is horrendous idea.
