House anger at the Senate reaches a new level
Even when they are controlled by the same party, the House and Senate often treat the other as the enemy. House members especially express constant frustration at the Senate, where bills they pass tend to disappear or take months to wind their way through the parliamentary morass. The anger is even more pronounced now that the House is controlled by Republicans and the Senate by Democrats.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is taking a strong stance against House GOP policy riders as negotiations to keep the government funded beyond April 8 reach their final week. White House officials and Democratic and Republican leaders will work through the weekend in an effort to meet next Friday’s deadline.
