***Breaking News****Budget Deal Passes House Vote
WASHINGTON -- A coalition of House Republicans and Democrats approved on Thursday legislation that would cut almost $40 billion from the budget for the rest of the fiscal year by a vote of 260 to 167. When the time for the vote expired, fewer than 150 members had voted yes, with scores waiting to see where their colleagues would fall before taking the plunge.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has vowed to quickly take up the House-passed legislation Thursday afternoon without further debate.

8. But, but, but the president isn't a dictator - he has no way to get Congress to act!
Or that's what I've read here so many times - especially in regards to the health insurance scam.
