Senate debates the budget

I'm sure there will be more on this later, but for now, the Senate is debating the budget that it passed out of committee earlier this week. Despite some rumblings of discontent from the right, the motion to suspend the rules and allow the bill to come to the floor passed easily. It looks like the final vote will be similar, based on what has been said so far.

In case you're curious, the CPPP has a side by side comparison of the House and Senate budgets. They'll have an update for after the sausagemaking is finished. Stay tuned.
