After intense partisan battles and over two weeks of a partial federal shutdown, the final vote was 81 to 18. The bill will authorize funding of the government, at sequestration spending levels, until January 15th. The debt ceiling will be lifted into early February, allowing the country to avert default on the national debt. Before the vote, Republicans who have led the charge against the bill were dismayed that Obama Care provisions were untouched. Senator Ted Cruz (R) says, “This is a terrible deal. This deal embodies everything about the Washington establishment that frustrates the American people. This deal kicks the can down the road.”
