No Shutdown Showdown This Time

The New York Times reports the Senate "by a vote of 73-26 passed a spending measure that caps spending for programs within Congress's annual discretion at $984 billion. The House is expected to pass the measure as soon as Thursday, eliminating any current threat of a government shutdown. The final Senate bill did ease the hit of the automatic cuts known as sequestration somewhat, especially those that could hurt vulnerable Democrats."
