    I wonder, will Obama veto this one if it gets to his desk? Isn't there a rule about spending bills originating in the House?

    Dems in the Senate drafting spending bills? Sounds about right.

    Revenue bills.

    Not that it matters even if appropriations were to fit the bill; the House sent the Senate (originated) a continuing resolution yesterday that the Senate is free to amend to its heart's content, including stripping all of the language and substituting its own.
