Senate Passes Continuing Resolution

First the House, now the Senate. Looks like there was more that could be cut then the Democrats thought.

"It didn’t take long for the Senate to approve the House’s continuing resolution to keep the federal government in operation until April 8th, three weeks from now. After Barack Obama signaled his intent to sign the bill, it sailed through the Senate by a wide bipartisan margin, 87-13, with 9 of the 13 dissenters Republicans. But while Obama signs the bill, he may need to explain how Republicans managed to cut more spending in three weeks than Democrats proposed for the rest of the year"
