Congress gave final approval Thursday to a $1.1 trillion spending bill that eases the sharp budget cuts known at the sequester and guarantees that the nation will not endure another government shutdown until at least Oct. 1.
After three years of politically bruising and economically damaging battles over the budget, the bipartisan agreement to fund federal agencies through the rest of the fiscal year passed with little fanfare.

Another day, another disaster. They s love kicking the Tea Party to the curb.
“Eases sharp budget cuts” == “increases spending more than it would have already increased”
Please note, again, that Washington Post material must be excerpted at all times.
Well, of course they did. Why, how could they not? Obama would take out his pen or phone and make them obsolete had they not done so.
Last night Mark Levin implied that Boehner is being blackmailed. “You connect the dots.”
It’s always a possibility in our NSA age.

Levin has heavily implied this for the last few years.. Heck beck even surmised as much and even that screwball alex jones has said so....
It is almost an open secret around Washington...
John Roberts is also being Blackmailed over various things...
News like this almost makes me want to tell the tea party folk in the senate and the house to go on strike......
And not show up for the State of the Union...
Instead they should hold a separate “State of the Police State Oligarchy Oppressive state”
Meh, I don’t believe any of that. They are who they are, RINO and fairly liberal. There is nothing to suggest blackmail. They are just doing what liberal-lite does. It is no more than that. Plus, Boehner is not very smart.
Got it.....I thought I did. Sorry.
Hey, it’s all free money!
Another example of political corruption on display. More sad and disastrous days on the horizon for Americans and America.
until at least Oct. 1
something to save for the election
Those must be some young boys Boehner was with...
(Yes he is obviously being blackmailed)
LOL. Republicans will get blamed again if they don't pass some "continuing resolution."
I'm not putting my hopes on the GOP anymore, are you?
The name of the game in DC is blackmail.
A trillion here and a trillion there and pretty soon we’ll be talking about real money.
SOOOOOO. SOOOOOO. SOOOOOOOOEEEEEEEE!!!
Its full trough time on K street!
How is it that this half-wit is Speaker of the House???
GOP fighting for military pension cuts
What a great start to the campaign!
What a bunch of idiots.
>> Last night Mark Levin implied that Boehner is being blackmailed. You connect the dots.
Blackmailed or simply threatened?
What could Boehner have possibly done that warrants betrayal?
Destroying the GOP = Saving America. Long Live the Tea Party.
Boehner is whipped. Not blackmailed. The beltway GOP is terrified of the kenyan and his propagandists in the MSM.
We are heading to revolution ,I fear. These politicians have been corrupted by “contributions”. 43% are now parasites stealing from the labor of others. The president is violating the constitution and has become a dictator. Republicans are now sucking up to the communists. This country,in my opinion , will never survive, I see terrible conflict— very bloody —
I think you're right. This is right out of the book of Cloward/Piven. Spend the country into collapse in an effort to usher in another form of gubbamint.
Revolution will not happen though until Americans have nothing else to lose.
The writings of our founding fathers I've read, all this nonsense would have stopped long ago. This is insane. Uncle Sugar is totally out of control.
Well put sir and dead on. One thing is for sure, the end is now in sight.
Active Duty/Retiree ping.
Obama is financed by Boehner... who collaborates with him..
McConnell is just Senate wall paint..
Not Voting - 2
That's the Chicago Way.
A trillion dollars?
LOL, why not just make it a megabazillion and be done with it.
“the bipartisan agreement to fund federal agencies”
The Fairfax Communists.
Chambliss and Coburn not voting? WTF? Voting present is spineless. Even you are going to lose...you vote NO you wimps. It gives our side some numerical power in the headlines.
Once again, the rino and liberal whachos unite to defeat conservatives and I am told by so many that conservatives must take back the rino party. I think that will never happen. I believe there must be a new conservative party set up and run only by conservatives and only for conservatives as this is the only logical solution left and should have been done over a decade ago.
Its a third party now or its business as usual in DC with liberals and rinos only.
“Last night Mark Levin implied that Boehner is being blackmailed.”
It seems that everyone has forgotten the alleged access to
FBI files that was enjoyed by the Clintons: carried over into the Obama administration?
