Senate Passes Clean CR, Sends It Back To House   Leave a comment

Earlier today the Senate, by a vote of 54-44, passed its’ own version of a continuing resolution to keep the government funded and sent it over to the House sans’ the cuts to Obamacare spending that the House (or more precisely, the House GOP) had inserted into the CR the first go-round. 

Now comes the Kabuki theatre part and judging by President Obama’s remarks just a little while ago, he ain’t budging from his insistence that the House pass a clean CR without all the poison pill items the House would love to put in a CR just to screw over the American people. When you think about it, why should the President bow to GOP demands; with no re-election to worry about himself, Pres. Obama is a helluva’ lot more willing to call the Republicans’ bluff on the debt ceiling, even if it forces a default on the debt, something he sure as hell wasn’t willing to gamble with 2 years ago.

Put simply, unlike 2011, Obama and the Democrats’ in Washington have the advantage of time at present…and as I pointed out earlier this week, the House really doesn’t have many options save for working with House Democrats to pass a clean CR that keeps the government funded period.
