The House passed a continuing resolution on Tuesday to keep the government running until next year.
The vote of 336-95 included 209 Democrats, surpassing the number of Republicans supporting the measure.

"The bill has the support of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and is expected to pass through the Senate on its way to President Biden’s desk by the Friday midnight deadline," Breitbart News reported.
"Schumer Monday said he was 'pleased' with Speaker Johnson for choosing not to pursue spending cuts or changes to Biden Administration policies in the spending package, calling the bill 'a responsible measure,'" it added.
So many Reps came out publicly and said NO CR then caved. All CR's for the last decade ended in an Omnibus.

"The CR continues the current level of federal spending and includes a one-year extension of the farm bill, which contains funding for food stamps or SNAP benefits," Just the News reported.
"Conservative House members had vowed to vote against the CR and released a formal statement in opposition to the measure ahead of the floor vote," it continued.
The continuing resolution extends spending for some areas through Jan. 19, with other areas continuing until February.
The resolution will require Congress to move forward on yet another proposal after the holidays but will at least keep the government operating through early next year.
Some conservatives blasted the approval as siding with the left, claiming nothing was gained in the new move.
However, many lawmakers realize that the majority of Americans are more concerned about the government remaining open through the holidays, overriding other political concerns until Congress returns to session in 2024 to hammer out details on a longer.
