House Passes Mammoth Spending Bill… On to the Senate

It just happened.

Democrats have finally managed to get the support needed to pass the mammoth spending bill through the House.

Now Democrats are all walking around slapping themselves on the back, but this fight is far from over.

On to the Senate

The vote came down along party lines, with Pelosi managing to get all Democrats on board except for one.

With only a handful of voters to spare, she managed to keep the majority tight on this one, with the bill passing 220-213.

The lone Democrats holdout was Rep. Golden (ME).

Pelosi had hoped to put the bill on the floor on Thursday night, but House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) went old-school with a filibuster marathon speech.

McCarthy spoke for some 8.5 hours, in part, stating, “From bank surveillance to bailouts, this bill takes the problems President Biden and Democrats have already created and makes them much, much worse.”

He also called the Democrats “out of touch” with the basic needs of most Americans.

Democrats could not help but gush praise on each other after the bill passed…

This fight is far from over, however.

There is still divide in the Senate on the Democrat side, so we should not expect to see this bill as is hit the floor anytime soon in the Senate.
