    Default House Approves 2-Week Extension Of Goverment Funding

    Despite a laundry list of demands from Democrats and Republicans who appeared ready to cut off government funds, a majority of the House has voted to approve a two-week extension of government spending, a major legislative achievement that will allow Republicans to focus on their top priority: Passing comprehensive tax reform. The measure [goes] to the Senate, which must act on it by Friday. Measures included in the bill would also direct more money to states that are running out of federal funds under the Childrenís Health Insurance Program

    Looks like Rand Paul voted for the extension. McCain voted against it.

    In addition to Sanders and McCain, the senators who voted against the stopgap funding bill were Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Ed Markey (D-Mass.), John McCain (R-Ariz.), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).
