Just as Greta Van Susteran’s show hit the air she had the breaking news from correspondent Chad Pergram that the House Appropriations Committee is prepping yet another Continuing Resolution to fund the government for “mostly one week,” with a whopping $12 BILLION in spending slashed, and avoiding a government shutdown on Friday night, April 8th. More details as available.
According to Pergram, no one knows how the House freshman will vote, and he said the bill has not yet been “whipped,” meaning that Congressman Kevin McCarthy has not yet started “working” (whipping) his Caucus members to accept this legislation…legislation that will be explosive and most unwelcome to many in the House. In the last recent vote for a continuing resolution, 54 Republican House members voted no, with the CRA passing anyway.
UPDATE: Freshman Congresswoman Christie Noem (R-SD) is on with Greta now and she says the bill will be filed tonight, and that Republicans are “unified.”
