"The U.S. Congress approved stopgap legislation to keep the government funded through March 4, setting up a budget fight early next year between the administration and Republicans. On a 193-165 vote, the House backed a stripped-down measure that would freeze pay for federal employees, provide $160 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and head off cuts in Pell grants for college tuition. The Senate approved the bill hours earlier, 79-16." (12/21/10)
