Via the Wall Street Journal:
In a rare weekend session triggered by a conservative revolt against President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration, the Senate on Saturday night passed a $1.1 trillion government spending bill, sending it to the president for his signature and ending the final budget fight of a Congress riven by them. Two days after intraparty divisions in the House threatened to derail the measure, a divided Senate narrowly passed the funding bill on a 56-40 vote. It was supported by 31 Democrats, one Independent and 24 Republicans. It was opposed by 21 Democrats, one Independent and 18 Republicans. Passage came after senators reached a deal to end an impasse, and then cleared a pair of procedural hurdles that could have killed the bill’s passage.
Leading the charge to stop the bill and shut down the government was Sen. Ted Cruz. Of course.
