> “The GOP’s chances of passing a budget this year are dwindling as the Senate prepares for an impending brawl over a Supreme Court nominee this spring.
> “House and Senate Republican leaders have publicly declared they intend to complete the full appropriations process this year for the first time in two decades, just in time for the fall elections. 
> “But the party’s aggressive timeline is quickly moving out of reach, according to GOP aides and budget experts, making it increasingly likely the party will be forced to resort to another short-term funding measure or omnibus spending bill later this year.”
