Senate approves budget, sends to Obama

Washington (CNN) - For the first time in what seems like ages, Congress has passed a government spending plan without resorting to last-minute brinkmanship such as midnight negotiations to prevent an imminent government shutdown.

The Senate voted 64-36 on Wednesday to send the compromise federal budget framework to President Barack Obama, who has signaled his support.

    And the only people who intend to adhere to it are the Dems and Obama. MSM bobbleheads trying to sell this as "bipartisan" are full of crap.

    It has it's flaws, but if it keeps the government from shutting down, it's a plus. The picture is nice.

    Smith – in your recent post, I suggest you look up SEATO, which was an Eisenhower initiative. It may answer some of your misconceptions.

    This is the first time Democrats (Reid) is feeling the heat since all he knows how to do is say DOA on every budget that has been sent to the Senate while Obama has been in office.
