An hour after the federal government began shutting down, House Republicans approved a last-ditch effort early Tuesday seeking to set up a committee with the Senate to resolve their monumental differences over Obamacare.
The House passed the measure seeking a conference committee, 228 to 199. But even before the vote, Democratic leaders promised to swiftly reject the offer when the Senate met later Tuesday morning. No compromise could be reached on Sunday as the Democrats in Congress took the day off.
This is why we need to persuade the Senate to pass a budget. (The House passed hundreds of them and Senate either voted down or refused to vote on it)
Here's the article from CNSnews about the Obama's wasteful spending of money we don't have:
-The Labor Department’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs plans to award up to $1 million in taxpayer dollars to increase gender equality at work in Morocco.
The purpose of the grant is “to help build the capacity of civil society organizations, including non-governmental organizations and trade unions, in the Kingdom of Morocco to address working women's issues and empower women to more fully exercise their labor rights.”
