By a vote of 332-94, the House has passed the Ryan/Murray Budget Deal. Of the Republican Caucus, 169 voted for, and 63 voted against.
The best rundown on why this was worth doing is by Peggy Noonan.
Why am I in favor of this? Because I want NOTHING to get in the way of the continuing failure of Obamacare. No "shut down the government" crap. No "extend unemployment insurance at Christmastime" fight. Nope. Nothing gets in the way of the continued implosion of a bad system.
My Twitter feed is aflame with rantings of some Conservatives who yet again wish to take to the barricades and try and bring down the government. They are of course hurling around the phrase "RINO" without any sense of irony in the fact that their members were outvoted in their own caucus by 73% to 27%.
We are winning, friends. The country does not want another self-inflicted wound, with Republicans firing the shot.
