House Passes New CR, But With Fresh Republican Defections; Funds The Government Through April 8th with $6 Billion in Fresh Cuts

Republicans are beginning to split from these votes due to the CR's failure to defund ObamaCare, as well as a general dislike of the drip-drip-drip process.

I don't mind the drip-drip-drip -- I think it's pretty clever. Isn't it? We have $10 billion in cuts so far, and every time we do this, we can ask, "You're saying you can't cut just an additional $4 billion more?" It's like the frog in boiling water.

I understand that people like Rubio want to get this funding issue out of the way to work on other things, but I think the GOP leadership is playing this pretty well so far.
