Budget Heads to Senate

New bipartisan budget deal passed by House faces firm Republican opposition in the Senate.
(NBC News)  A group of "typically" moderate Senators are now saying they'll vote against the House-passed budget compromise.

Democrats, meanwhile, are unhappy that an extension of long-term unemployment benefits was left out as well.
