BREAKING: NYT story on the $1.1 trillion spending deal, and how it (finally!) passed: http://t.co/ro9TUwGYnBRT @GrahamBlog: I haven't seen Harry Reid smile like this in years. I don't like it one bit. http://t.co/EOufSJahSxBREAKING: $1.1 trillion spending bill passes Senate, 56 to 40. Onto Obama's desk...Cruz's motion goes down, 22 to 74.On this Cruz point of order, Rubio wants to be "aye" for the primary and "no" for the general...News from the Hill: Senate has reached a deal on voting on the spending bill -- both cloture and final passage -- tonight.RT @frankthorpNBC: This is what over 5 hours of straight votes look like, and we're not even half way there... http://t.co/XscKP8NCvRRT @tackettdc: Mood of the Senate? Grim, grumpy. Plodding to the finish line, by @ashleyrparker & @ropear http://t.co/nRzXTdifgSYour daily dispatch from the grim, grumpy and — of course — dysfunctional Capitol this Saturday: http://t.co/uJqMRn5b6jSusan Collins lashed Cruz in private chat on the floor. “You are going to make everybody miserable,” Collins said. http://t.co/CfpML4jOV7
Retweeted by Ashley Parker@SheriKBonner They are indeed.Senate just passed short-term CR to keep the govt funded through Wed. So shutdown officially averted.Republican cloakroom hunkers down w Chick-fil-A, sweet tea, and lemonade.Sen. Collins: “This is certainly a very poor way to end the year and will only confirm the public’s already low opinion of Congress."Sen. Collins says today reminds her of the "shutdown last year where the strategy made absolutely no sense and was counterproductive."@PhilipRucker @MaeveReston I would just accept time in a car that’s not a pool van..."The campaign played on the double meaning of the word ‘jerk,' which can also be a euphemism for masturbation.” http://t.co/BCw9Vh4gQASaturdays in the Senate, w Ted Cruz, Harry Reid, and the whole gopher village: http://t.co/nRzXTdifgS
@JohnFeehery I think… bad. But I’m sort of too confused to make a determination at this point.@jamespmanley That’s what @hillhulse said. But you’ll be happy to know that @pkcapitol is playing the Carl role, providing refreshments.Days on the Hill this week have become like dog years. Or something.Evening update from the Hill: Everyone wants a deal, no one knows if there will be a deal, and everything is uncertain. #BecauseCongressEverybody seems to want to get out of Congress — and town — tonight. And yet, it may not happen.My (truly v nice) Uber driver just asked me if I'd had a long day, or if my eyes "are always like that." #IBlameYouCromnibusThe Capitol, at night, as seen from below. http://t.co/AhbXWpTiZ2
And it’s official: With just an hour and 11 minutes left, Senate passes a two-day CR to avert a government shutdown.Spending bill passes, just hours before deadline: http://t.co/CvdWwx6ClW@MOHorton True.Cromnibus passes 219 to 206. Our long national nightmare is over.RT @BresPolitico: Cromnibus passes, a blow to Pelosi, Warren & liberal Democrats.To be clear, both Democrats and Republicans are divided. But the Democratic disarray is more unusual -- and shows a public fissure w WH.Rare for @SpeakerBoehner to put a bill on the floor without knowing if he has the votes. But this time, Dems are the divided party. #CromniIf it does go to a short-term CR, it will find the government until Feb. 27, 2015.Pelosi to Dems: "I'm giving you the leverage to do whatever you have to do. We have enough votes to show them never to do this again."Whip Steny Hoyer spoke at the meeting to say he would support the # Cromni.Inside The Room: John Lewis offered rousing call for Dems to oppose. "If we fail to stand for something, we fall for anything."An angry Rep. Moran also said it was a "damn good question" why some House Dems are choosing a short-term CR over the spending bill.Retiring Rep. Jim Moran of VA said "This particular experience -- along w many others -- has validated my decision to leave."After an hour, McDonough leaves the meeting, repeating -- grim-faced and unconvincingly -- "Really great opportunity. I appreciate it."Before McDonough spoke, House Dems kept him waiting in order to voice their grievances against the White House.Inside The Room: McDonough's pitch is that a one-year #Cromni is more important than all the bad stuff in the bill.Leader Pelosi said she has spoken to the president "on a range of issues" today.Denis McDonough just walked into the House Democratic emergency meeting. Members have a lot of anger at the WH right now.@KateNocera @edatpost @CHueyBurnsRCP Normally, I wait until circa 4 pm for my Fro-Yo Shame Spiral. Cc: @jesteiRT @LisaMascaro: Talk about Dem divisions -- WH vs Pelosi on #cromnibusRT @tackettdc: Game on.
