HOUSE APPROVES $1.1T BILL FINANCING GOVERNMENT

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republicans have muscled a $1.1 trillion bill financing government agencies through the House after President Barack Obama phoned Democratic lawmakers and urged them to back the measure.

The House approved the measure late Thursday by 219-206.

The compromise bill keeps agencies funded through next September.

Many conservatives opposed it because it did not block Obama's recent executive actions on immigration. A large majority of House Democrats opposed it because of provisions easing some restrictions on banks and allowing higher political contributions by big donors.

Obama backed the bill and called wavering Democratic lawmakers to persuade them to help it pass.

The bill must now be approved by the Democratic-run Senate.

Funding for federal agencies was expiring at midnight. Lawmakers were ready to pass short-term legislation keeping government doors open.

Headline: "Hannity Unloads on ‘Cowardly’ John Boehner After House Passes $1.1 Trillion Spending Bill: ‘We’ve Got Our Own Gruber’"

I am not a great fan of Sean but in this case he's spot on.

"Fox News host Sean Hannity called for a “cowardly” Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to be replaced Thursday night after the House passed a $1.1 trillion spending bill aimed at funding the federal government through 2015.

“John Boehner ‘Grubered’ conservatives tonight,” Hannity said, referencing Affordable Care Act architect Jonathan Gruber who was caught on multiple videos bragging about misleading the American people to pass the health law.

“He never would have done this before the election,” the conservative talk show host continued. “He has no inspiring vision. And to me, he is everything that is wrong with Washington.”...

“We’ve got our own Gruber,” he added. “It’s John Boehner. Boehner is Gruber. He’s full of it.”

When the GOPe loses Hannity, you know there is going to be trouble. He goes out of his way not to step on anyones toes in the RNC.

BTW, I find it odd that Lou Barletta voted for this. He is an Anti Amnesty crusader and his whole career is based on it.
