House Republicans in Total Disarray

Top Republicans halted debate on the House's version of a bill to fund the Departments of Transportation and House and Urban Development "once they realized it had no chance of passage," Roll Call reports.

"The bill foundered not only because a couple dozen conservative Republicans thought it would spend too much, but also because a small but pivotal number of Republican moderates had joined virtually all the Democrats viewing the depth of the proposed cuts as too deep."

First Read: "We've made this point before, and we'll make it again: Congressional Republicans aren't on the same page right now on, well, ANYTHING... And if they can't pass this bill, it's hard to imagine how they can pass any kind of legislation relating to funding the government, which only strengthens the White House's hand in the upcoming fiscal fights."
