The Senate will continue debating S. 1323, while the House will continue working on H.R. 2219 (Defense appropriations). In essence, the Senate is continuing to posture on political matters while the House does the real work of governing.
As much as I prefer not editorialzing, the above is sadly true. When the Republicans waste time on a measure solely for political purposes (as they have done in the past and will do so again in the future) I'll point that out as well.
For now its the Senate's Democratic leadership that is guilty of wasting the chamber's time on nothing other that trying to score political points.
