Berg Votes For Continuing Resolution

The House passed another continuing resolution today. You can get the full roll call for the vote here.

North Dakotans will be interested to note that, although 54 Republicans voted no on the bill, Rep. Rick Berg voted to pass it. The final tally was 271 – 158, meaning that unless there are more defections among Republicans the House will likely have the votes to pass another CR in a couple of weeks.

Not something that’s going to sit well with conservatives who are wondering why, with a $1.6 trillion budget deficit, Republicans can’t do better than squabbling with Democrats over spending cuts that amount to a fraction of the budget deficit.
