Senate Democrats say they have the votes to stop government funding.
The House of Representatives just approved a short term continuing spending bill to keep the government fully funded until mid-February.
The vote was 230-197. 11 Republicans voted no. 5 Democrats voted yes
It now moves on to the Senate, where Democrats say they have the votes to stop the funding, and at least in theory, shut the government.
