(Worthy News) – The House passed a stopgap government funding bill paired with an increase in the federal borrowing limit that will likely face a GOP filibuster in the Senate.
The vote was 220-211, with no Republicans supporting the measure.
Democrats, determined to avoid raising the debt limit without GOP support, looped in must-pass funding that will keep the government operating through Dec. 3.
Republicans refused to back the bill, citing their opposition to the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion social welfare spending package they plan to pass in the coming weeks without any GOP support. Republicans say that bill constitutes reckless spending that will contribute to the nation’s debt and deficit. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
