Senate Approves US Spending Bill

Its a start. The prediction accurately shows the government working together and the individuals who would try and stop it. They even predicted the 40 votes and how ‘amnesty’ fits in with the prediction. The president is expected to pass the bill.

Predictions for 2014   The US government drastically alters.. the president ready to set a more positive tone..  compromise.. togetherness return.. unfortunately much of it due to the issues that face the nation.. later the US government becomes more blue, as the red dwindles.

Future of US Politics? -Notes on 11-6-14
Coalition .. 40
Number 1 go ahead, Number 2 go ahead, Number 3.. No
Amnesty
Obama, and Mitch (McConnell); To work with you mortal enemy really says something.
Yes to compromise and no to gridlock in the US. They do come together
It’s the radical right of the likes of Ted Cruz that dissolves good intentions.

The Facts 12-14-14: “The Senate approved a $1.1 trillion spending measure Saturday night funding most of the government through September, removing the threat of a shutdown for much of 2015.

The bipartisan 56-40 vote sends the bill to President Barack Obama, who is expected to sign it into law…

Passage closes a chapter of yet another fiscal battle on Capitol Hill. It came after attempts to delay the legislation by liberals who sought to strip out a policy provision that eases a Wall Street regulation and conservatives who tried to slow action on immigration.

In fact, the Senate would not have been in session this weekend if it hadn’t been for a small band of conservatives who sabotaged an agreement by Democratic Leader Harry Reid and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, who wanted to vote on the bill Monday.

In a late Friday night procedural sneak attack, carried out after McConnell left the Capitol, the group led by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, forced the Senate to stay. They also pressed to get a vote on a measure to declare the bill unconstitutional because it funds what they say is “illegal amnesty” included in the President’s recent executive orders on immigration.

The move by rank-and-file members to undermine an agreement between the Senate leaders is highly unusual and may reflect the difficulty incoming majority leader McConnell will face managing the Senate when the new Congress convenes next month.”

Cruz defended his actions.” Want to read more: Quoted News: http://www.cnn.com/2014/12/13/politics/senate-passes-spending-bill/index.html?hpt=hp_t1&section=money_topstories
