Senate partisanship

“The House of Representatives early Friday morning passed a continuing resolution to fund the government and avoid a looming shutdown after the first attempt to pass a resolution failed…

…So House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) appealed to conservatives and made deeper cuts in the current resolution, which drew opposition from just 24 House Republicans. Six Democrats also supported the current bill…

…Reid said Friday he would put the measure up for a vote this morning but that it is dead on arrival.”

Reid hasn’t even seen it and already he’s said it’s DOA.  A bipartisan bill passes the House and who’s the party of ‘NO’?  Who’s unwilling to compromise?
