    Senate passes $1.1T funding bill

    The Senate voted 56-40 late Saturday evening to pass a $1.1 trillion spending package that funds most of the government through next September.The vote culminates a weak of acrimonious sniping and sends the spending bill to President Obama’s desk for a signature.
    The debate exposed divisions within the Democratic and Republican caucuses on both sides of the Capitol and sets the stage what could be a year of internecine squabbling in 2015.
    The package includes 11 appropriations bills that fund most of the government through Sept. 30 and a continuing resolution (CR) funding the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through Feb. 27.
    It nearly died in the House this week after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a rising star among her party’s liberal base, urged House Democrats to oppose it because of language repealing a key provision of the 2010 Wall Street Reform Act.

    Well, except for the dramatically increased campaign contribution caps, the cuts to nutrition programs for mothers and children, the extra fighter planes that don't work and the Pentagon didn't ask for, and the repeal of regulations that were aimed at protecting us from another enormous bank bailout... no more drama!

    The Dodd Frank change was really a time buyer for the Congress to revisit the whole issue of banking regulation. The only thing that will protect us from another bailout will be to reimpose the restrictions that Clinton removed in the Financial Services Modernization Act that allowed banks to do things like these asinine warehousing of commodities schemes.

    My post is not about the substance of the bill itself. That is certainly up to debate, and I disagree with many many points of it itself. My post was that the government will still be open.
