From a CNN news article:
Reid's announcement capped a day of sharp partisan voting in the House and extended talks behind closed doors between congressional and administration officials. Concern continued to grow that Congress will fail to raise the nation's debt ceiling in time to avoid a potentially devastating national default next week.
Earlier in the day, the Republican-controlled House rejected Reid's plan -- partisan payback for the Democratic-controlled Senate's rejection of GOP House Speaker John Boehner's plan Friday night.
Why is it partisan — not just partisan but "sharp" partisan when the House votes to reject Reid, but not when the Senate votes to reject Boehner? It's enough to make one think there's a hint of sharp partisanship over at CNN.
