The split within the Senate GOP on full display right now on the Senate floor. Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) is pointing the finger at Sens. Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, accusing them of staging a “show.” Corker was also careful to point out that it’s not all Republicans delaying things, it’s just Lee and Cruz.

All of this comes as Harry Reid tried to accelerate the vote on the temporary funding bill so the Senate can kick it back to the House. Lee and Cruz won’t consent to speeding things up. Corker is saying basically enough is enough. More here.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
