House passes bill to reopen IRS and other financial agencies, despite veto threat:

The House passed a financial services spending bill on Wednesday, the first of four appropriations bills the House will vote on this week in an attempt to reopen shuttered parts of government, despite the fact that the measures are not expected to go anywhere in the Senate and face a White House veto threat.

The vote was 240-188.
The stalemate is a reflection of the continued standoff over the ongoing government shutdown, which does not look like it will end anytime soon.
Each day this week, the House will vote on bills to fund shuttered parts of the government. The first spending bill voted on covered financial services, such as the Treasury Department and the IRS.
