Obama Asks Senate to approve $1.1 trillion spending bill

President Barrack Obama asked the Senate to approve the $1.1 trillion spending bill, there are legislators from different camps objects the bill and there are even angry Democrats who said that it was a compromise that resulted from the divided government that the American people voted for.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said that the bill is a compromise, and there are colleagues that are not happy with it and they will have a chance to make their objections heard. He added that the senators would vote on the final deal Monday. The bill will continue funding the government up to September 2015, Homeland Security agency is not included since it is funded until February 27.

Fox News Sean Hannity was livid about the passing of this bill he is particulary mad at House Speaker John Boehner's (R-Ohio) for his support of this bill.

Hannity said: "This measure did not sit well with a number of conservatives, including me." "$ 2.5 billion for illegal immigrants and Obamacare is funded through the fiscal year, that's a conservative speaker? I don't think so. It's a sad day that John Boehner doesn't realize that there was an election. The people have spoken ... John Boehner has disrespected all the people who voted for all those Republicans tonight."

He even relate Jonathan Gruber (Obamacare consultant who said the American voters are stupid) to Boehner, "John 'Gruber' Boehner ...  John Boehner 'Grubered' conservatives tonight. And by that I mean the conservative base in particular." " We've got our own Gruber. It's John Boehner. Boehner is Gruber. He's full of it."

Republicans will take control of the Senate next month.
