Senate Votes to Set Up Another Shutdown Fight in Two Weeks

The Senate voted Monday to re-open the federal government after two days of a government shutdown. The deal reached between Senate Republicans and Senate Democrats extends government funding to February 8 while lawmakers further debate DACA and immigration reform.

The final vote for the stopgap measure was 81-18 — with opposition coming from progressive Democrats, two Republicans, and independent Bernie Sanders. Because of the current hyper-partisan environment in Washington, voters are looking at the threat of another government shutdown in two weeks.
