Congress Likely Racing Toward a Government Shutdown

Not renewing CHIP is not a fiscal question but a moral question that will affect our culture for years. The Senate voted 50-48 to block the stopgap funding measure. But that's exactly what he and his party are doing now. We must do everything in our power as a state to continue to protect our most vulnerable and provide the stability our economy needs to grow.

"But rather than solve problems, Democratic leadership preferred a shutdown that has dangerous consequences for our national defense".

Trump was originally scheduled to attend a "Trump Victory Dinner" Saturday night at Mar-a-Lago, with proceeds going to a joint fundraising committee for his re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee. With that in mind, it's easy to see one side picking up political support in the immediate aftermath of the shutdown, only for that bump to fade with time.

Right around midnight Friday, Senate Democrats killed a GOP-written House-passed measure that would have kept agencies functioning for four weeks.

But despite Trump's attempts to paint democrats as the guilty party, recent polls show Republicans and President Trump will bear most of the blame.

How soon could an agreement be reached? "Unfortunately we'll not be able to get that vote tonight".

"It's a live option", one of the sources said - one Democrats have been told is an acceptable change for Republicans. However, it didn't not contain a solution for undocumented immigrants brought to the US as small children.

Democrats have said Republican proposals have also come up short on funding for such concerns as the opioid crisis and hurricane disaster relief for Puerto Rico.

"We're not familiar with anything in this CR that Democrats are opposing", he said.

McConnell claimed that the Democrats held the opposition party 'hostage' "over the completely unrelated issue of illegal immigration". Trump tweeted Friday evening.

"This is completely unfair and uncompassionate for my Democratic colleagues to filibuster government funding, harm our troops, and jeopardise health coverage for nine million children because extreme elements of their base want illegal immigration to crowd out every other priority", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said.

President Donald Trump on Saturday took a swing at Democrats who blocked a last-minute measure to fund government operations, calling their near-uniform opposition an attempt to give him a "nice present" to commemorate his first anniversary as president. "We can then be even tougher on Crime (and Border), and even better to our Military & Veterans!"

Republicans blamed Democrats for angling for the DACA legislative fix over keeping the government open, using the hashtag #SchumerShutdown and launching an accompanying website focused on Schumer. "Four weeks being the president's position".

'Well, if you say who gets fired it always has to be the top, ' Trump told Fox & Friends in 2013 when asked who was responsible for the shutdown.

Back in September, Trump cut a short-term government funding deal with Schumer and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi. Mulvaney accused the Obama administration of weaponizing the last shutdown. Neither was Ryan, who was addressing the "March for Life" rally around the same time. "We had a long and detailed meeting".

"#ShumerShutdown guarantees more not less continuing spending resolutions", he wrote, referring to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York.

"Republicans need to stop hiding from important issues we were sent here to work on", Rep. Richard Neal said. Now, the finger-pointing has started. [Georgia Sen. David] Perdue was talking about having a bill.
