BREAKING! Constitution voted DOWN, CRomnibus victorious!

The $1.1 TRILLION continuing resolution omnibus funding bill has passed in the Senate, and it probably won’t be vetoed by the dog-eater in the Oval Office.

Watch below:



Senators had to vote on Ted Cruz’s point of order about the constitutionality of Obama’s illegal amnesty immigration order, and it did not fare well:

It almost seems like people are going out of their way to blame Ted Cruz for Democrats voting on Obama’s nominations, but as far as I can tell, the only reason we believed they weren’t going to is because they said so. Since when did we start trusting Democrats?

From the Hill:

The Senate voted 56-40 late Saturday evening to pass a $1.1 trillion spending package that funds most of the government through next September.

The vote culminates a weak of acrimonious sniping and sends the spending bill to President Obama’s desk for a signature.

The debate exposed divisions within the Democratic and Republican caucuses on both sides of the Capitol and sets the stage what could be a year of internecine squabbling in 2015.

The package includes 11 appropriations bills that fund most of the government through Sept. 30 and a continuing resolution (CR) funding the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through Feb. 27.

It nearly died in the House this week after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a rising star among her party’s liberal base, urged House Democrats to oppose it because of language repealing a key provision of the 2010 Wall Street Reform Act.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) needed dozens of Democratic votes after conservative Republicans revolted en masse because it does not block President Obama’s executive order on immigration and other reasons.
