The House's $1.1 trillion spending bill has posed a problem for many Democrats, who want to pass legislation to keep the government running, but may also take issue with some of its stipulations. Among the attachments to the bill are a rollback of Dodd-Frank banking reforms and McCain-Feingold campaign finance regulation.

"If my colleagues don't like this deal, they're really going to hate the next two years," one congressional Democrat told NBC.
The White House indicated earlier that President Barack Obama would sign the bill, despite his disagreements with some of its language.

It is clear from this recess on the floor that the Republicans don't have enough votes to pass the CRomnibus. This increases our leverage to get two offensive provisions of the bill removed: the bank bailout and big money for campaigns provision.
However you decide to vote in the end, I thank those who continue to give us leverage to improve the bill.
