House Passes Budget Deal Despite Kamikaze Caucus Opposition
I’m so old I remember when it was not even news that the House of Representatives passed a budget bill to keep the federal government funded. It was just what they were supposed to do. No big deal.
But nowadays, when the Republican Party has gone full tilt batshit loony, every budget deal has turned into an exercise in brinksmanship, as the Kamikaze Caucus threatens to shut down the government unless their latest extortion demands are met.
Luckily, we seem to have avoided the circular firing squad this time.
House passes budget deal 266-167. 79 Rs & 187 Ds voted yes. All 167 votes against were from Rs.
