Quote:The House on Wednesday failed to pass legislation to keep the government funded past next week, a major defeat for Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who was banking on having the votes for a package that tied emergency disaster aid to spending cuts.
The bill went down in a vote of 195 to 230. A whopping 48 Republicans sided with nearly all Democrats in opposing the measure aimed at keeping the government funded past Sept. 30, when current funding runs out, and through Nov. 18.
Didn't we all just go through this a few weeks ago? Is another Moody's downgrade in the works? Don't know if I can stand reading the word default again for the next few weeks, seems like drama is in the works.
