Inhofe: Senate Dems have 'stalled long enough'

Inhofe was one of nine Republicans who voted against the measure. Three Democrats and one Independent also opposed it. 

Inhofe added that he believes the short-term approach to government spending is harming the military's ability to wage war.

“We cannot continue to piecemeal federal government spending at only weeks at a time," said Inhofe. "Having spent the entire week hearing defense officials, including General David Petraeus, testify that the short-term approach to funding the government is hurting the management of the Department of Defense as well as the ability of our soldiers in the field."
