House Republicans meet to plot next move, as shutdown deadline nears
...The major issue remains whether the divided Republican House will pass simple legislation approve[d] Friday night by the Democrat-led Senate that funds the entire federal government through Nov. 15.[,]
O[o]r will[whether] members [will instead] send another temporary spending bill to the upper chamber with no ObamaCare funding, which would most likely result in a stalemate and partial shutdown Monday night.
The House sent its first temporary funding bill, without ObamaCare money, to the Senate earlier this month. But Senate Democrat[s] re-inserted funding for the health care law, despite efforts by Texas GOP Sen. Ted CruzI mean, good grief. Does Fox News hand over its website to a high school newspaper on Saturdays? Or is it like this all the time? If it's not clear from the above, actually copyedited quote, I just want to draw your attention to this ACTUAL SENTENCE published on a purportedly journalistic website:
--— [N.B. two hyphens instead of an em-dash] a conservative, Tea Party-backed lawmaker –— [N.B. en-dash instead of an em-dash] to block that effort.
Or will members send another temporary spending bill to the upper chamber with no ObamaCare funding, which would most likely result in a stalemate and partial shutdown Monday night.That is both a FRAGMENT and a QUESTION WITHOUT A QUESTION MARK.
Incidentally, as I was writing this rant the Republicans announced their "compromise," so I can't actually link to the offending page. However, I did screenshot it so you know I'm not making anything up:
Seriously, guys. Seriously.
