Holy Cats! The GOP finally decided to stop blocking common sense and begin working with the President? Wow!

But I guess it's only because they failed to make him a one-term President.

Let me guess, all of Utah's representatives are part of the 109 who voted against it?

I thought that this bill does what the Republicans wanted? Spending cuts.. Did I miss something? It seems more like President Obama and the Democrats folded. Ask all those federal workers getting furloughed after years of spending freezes while interest has risen sharply on food costs, energy costs, etc how they feel.

From what the article says, it looks to me like the Republicans are getting some of the stuff they want. It is too bad we are having to spend 87 billion on wars that should have concluded years ago.

Re: "Holy Cats! The GOP finally decided to stop blocking common sense . . . . "

Oh, there's precious little common sense to block in this farsical non-budget.

It will be interesting though to see how the Obama regime handles the bill's grant of authority to lessen the pain of sequester "cuts."

Since lessening pain would be antithetical to acknowledged regime strategy, it'll be interesting to see how it simultaneously hangs rank-and-file DoD employees out to dry, protects the pay of presidentially-appointed cronies, and blames the effects of its perfidy on Republicans.

You can always count on the regime for a great show. Zero substance, but a great show!

Procuradorfiscal,

So its the democrats who are playing politics when the House (controlled by republicans tries to pass their constitutionally mandated control of the budget off to the President, so they can try to blame him for the effects of the sequester? I guess when you drink the GOP Kool-Aid black becomes white and white becomes black if they GOP says so.

Nope Fred – you have it backwards. That only happens when the Democrats say so.

Wrong! All four of Utah's representatives voted in favor of the bill. Of the 109 who voted against it, only 27 were Republicans. That means 82 Democrats voted against it (well over one-third of their total caucus).

A war that should have ended and a war that should have never been. Neither of which started on this presidents watch.
