Breaking: Senate unanimously votes to move ahead with spending bill

(CNN) – The Senate voted unanimously on Wednesday to move ahead on a spending plan needed to avoid a government shutdown next week, with Republicans, including Sen. Ted Cruz, unexpectedly reversing themselves after previously trying to block the measure over their objection to spending for Obamacare.

    It's almost like Cruz was only doing this for publicity.
    But that couldn't be true. He's a straight-shooter, not like one of those duplicitous suits in Washington he rails against.
