    Another loss for the Republican Party and further proof that they are just burning rubber at the line with their new found control of Congress. What a bunch of losers.

    The legislation passed, 257 to 167, with only 75 Republican votes, and it now heads to President Obama’s desk, where he is expected to sign it.

    In the vote on Tuesday — an abrupt reversal of position by House Republicans — what started as an uprising by conservative lawmakers ended largely in a resigned whimper, with Speaker John A. Boehner pushing through a “clean” spending bill over the objections of his more hard-line members, who had hoped to use the measure to fight what they say are Mr. Obama’s unconstitutional executive actions on immigration.

    This was awesome!

    Pelosi really is a whole league smarter than most in the House.
