Congress OKs Federal Spending Bill

With a government shutdown looming, Congress approved a temporary spending bill late Tuesday that will fund the government for another 10 weeks.

The current law funding the government -- a so-called continuing resolution -- was set to expire Tuesday at midnight.

The new bill will keep the government spending up to March 4, 2011. Everyone should have absorbed Rand Paul's planned balanced budget proposal by then.
