Crapo, Risch oppose deal, which passes Senate 81-18: Idaho Senators Mike Crapo and Jim Risch voted against legislation to delay the nation’s borrowing limit until February 7, 2014, and temporarily fund government operations until January 15, 2013.  Included in the agreement is a requirement for both chambers of Congress to go to conference on a budget with a reporting deadline of December 13, 2013, as well as new safeguards to ensure people who receive federal subsidies to purchase health insurance under Obamacare are eligible to receive them/U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo news release. More here.

Question: Do you agree with votes by Crapo & Risch against the debt ceiling and government funding deal that overwhelmingly passed the U.S. Senate?
