Just in from Robert Costa at NRO’s The Corner:

The House just passed the Boehner-White House spending deal, to fund the government for the remainder of the fiscal year. Fifty-nine Republicans voted against the measure. On the Democratic side, 81 members supported the package. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the party leader, voted nay; Democratic whip Steny Hoyer voted in favor.

If possible I’ll post the roll call asap.

Laura Ingraham interviewed John Boehner earlier today and drilled him about the CBO report that said, of the much touted $38 billion, only $352 million would be cut from the deficit this year. You can listen to Boehner’s responses here.

So far I feel this has been much ado about voting to put out a forest fire with a squirt gun (they’ll debate whether or not to put any water in it next month).

Update: The Senate has passed the budget bill 81-19.

The House roll call is here. The Senate roll call is here.
