Washington (CNN) – Before leaving Washington to concentrate efforts on their re-election campaigns, U.S. senators voted Saturday to fund the federal government into 2013 and passed a measure asserting a tough stance towards Iran over its nuclear program.
In a 62 to 30 vote in a session that stretched past midnight, the legislators approved the moneys necessary for government to function for the next six months and avoided a possible shutdown until early next year – thus forgoing any partisan funding standoff well past November's election date.

One thing we know for certain, if Obama is re-elected, the runaway spending will CONTINUE! The WASTE will CONTINUE! The DICTATORSHIP will CONTINUE!
You either want MORE of the SAME, or you don't. You are either a subversive, or you are NOT!
If Obama were a dictator we would all have universal health coverage, gay marriage equality, immigration reform and tax reform by now. Instead, we have have half hearted attempt at health care reform hobbled together by a dysfunctional congress and senate. I wish he were a dictator.

Do not ask for a tax cut and a war you have no stake in.
This congress blinked they were elected to stop all this Obama and his party out of control spending and failed policies.

Hmmmmm think you have got them reversed.....Dont forget all the waste during Bush years to Halliburton and their subsidiaries. I could go on..........
Yeah Palin is such a joke. She needs to watch her own children. Her gay conversion church needs to change her in something respectable. Has Todd her Alaska separatist husband taught her anything.
