In a vote just after midnight Friday, the Senate voted to pass a $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill, averting a government shutdown while paving the way for the next funding fight ahead of the midterm elections.

The House had approved its version Thursday in a bipartisan tally of 256-167.

The Senate passed its bill 65-32.

The sweeping deal, which will fund the government until September, increases military and domestic programs, delivering federal funds throughout the country, but exceeds budget caps — adding about a $1 trillion to the national debt.

Are you happy with this bill?
