How is this even news? It is politics and anyone who has been paying attention to the last 10 to 20 years will tell you how it goes:
The republicans and the democrats fight it out in the floor, which ever side has the majority, then they hold the cards, the minority to get what
they want have to do a series of stunts to keep the fight alive.
The budget is due and usually the minority will stop and stall, fight it out, causing smaller bills to keep things going to the very last. Then the 2
reconcile and miracle of miracles, a funding budget that goes for the year.
When Obama was in office, the republicans did such, and it switches from party to party.
In short this is nothing new, and what has become standard for the year. They do it to be able to beat their chest and point to it as something that
they accomplished. So in a few months when this comes up again, there will be infighting once again and another miracle budget at the last minute, to
keep the government running.
