    Speinding Bill Heads to White House

    House approves resolution to keep government running; bill heads to White House - The Washington Post

    Congress has approved a short-term funding measure, averting the chance of a federal government shutdown next week. But a broader battle over taxes and spending for the year is only just beginning.

    The House gave final approval Thursday, in a bipartisan 318 to 109 vote, to a continuing funding resolution that outlines spending through the end of the fiscal year, Sept. 30. It assures that the government will stay open when the current funding measure expires March 27. The House vote came a day after the Senate approved the bill. It now goes to President Obama for his signature, ending a relatively smooth and drama-free process for a Congress that has repeatedly deadlocked on spending issues. But it only covers the next six months
    Was that so hard? Obama shuts his mouth for a couple weeks and congress finally gets something done, even if its only a continuing resolution authorizing govt to spend another trillion dollars (which we dont have).

    I am glad congress actually did something rather then do nothing.

    I don't agree that Obama has "kept his mouth shut" on Congress' major budget **** ups.
