This morning the House of Representatives passed a bill that will fully fund the government through December 15 with the exception of funding for Obamacare. The bill passed on a vote of 230-189. Of course the Democrats have already started with their histrionics. Nancy Pelosi called it an act of brutality. I’m not joking.
“It is a wolf in wolf’s clothing,” said Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat. “Either you don’t know what you’re doing or this is one of the most intentional acts of brutality you’ve cooked up.”
Rep. Nita Lowey, the top Democrat on the House spending committee, said limiting government funding now would prevent federal authorities from being able to help out as Colorado recovers from devastating floods.
Rep. Hal Rogers made an interesting point, and that is if they wanted to shut down the government they wouldn’t have bothered passing anything.
