Is the GOP Civil War Ending?

Molly Ball: "The broad approval of the budget deal demonstrated a few things. First, it showed the enormous credibility Ryan has with his colleagues. Many gave the deal more of a hearing than they might have because of Ryan's long track record of conservative policy proposals and his good relationships with other lawmakers and activists on the right. Second, it showed that Republicans learned a major lesson from the shutdown. Few want to go down that road again given the political price they paid and given the policy argument about the health-care law that Republicans generally think they are winning."
