(Worthy News) - A temporary funding measure that would keep the government open past a midnight deadline should make its way to President Barack Obama on Wednesday with time to spare.
The measure has already helped topple the top House GOP leader and exacerbated painful divisions between more pragmatic Republicans and a tea party wing that is increasingly dominant, especially in the rough-and-tumble House.
Tea party forces are frustrated that the bill, which would prevent a repeat of the partial shutdown of the government two years ago, fails to take away federal funding that goes to Planned Parenthood. [ Source ]
