The House of Representatives, followed by the Senate, both voted to pass a $1.1 trillion funding bill that now moves on to the White House for President Obama’s signature.
The White House sounds appreciative of the Republican majority and new Speaker of the House Paul Ryan:
Paul Ryan says Obama called to say thanks for making government work and merry Christmas.
Paul Ryan's response?
"Back at ya."

Ryan talks to Obama via phone after passage of omnibus/tax bill. Says Obama told him "thanks for making government work."

Basically the same thing as Chris Christie hugging Obama, right? https://t.co/hCPuMqeIyy
