Democrats and Republicans React to Government Shutdown

Democrats and Republicans React to Government Shutdown

Democrats appeared to have jumped on-board after two days of negotiations which ended with new reassurances from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that the Senate will consider immigration proposals in the coming weeks.

Graham, who said prior to the shutdown that lawmakers "don't have a reliable partner at the White House to negotiate with", also complained that various deals on the table supported by Trump could have solved the immigration issue and prevented the shutdown. Kelly called the New York Democrat to tell him his terms were too liberal for the GOP. Over the weekend, Speaker Paul Ryan signaled that the House would pass the bill.

"It all stems from the President, whose inability to clinch a deal has created the Trump Shutdown", said Senate Democratic leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. Senate Democrats dropped their objections to a temporary funding bill later in the day.

Millona says, for Democrats, it's a gamble.

The government shutdown enters a third day Monday after the Senate failed to reach an agreement to reopen federal agencies. It was read by spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders at a press briefing. The measure likely will clear the House, the lawmaker said.

Dems reportedly held a 90-minute meeting before ultimately choosing to trust McConnell's word that he would take up the measure in the near future if Democrats worked with Republicans in reopening the government.

And an end to the shutdown might not be coming anytime soon.

Trump spent the morning in the residence of the White House, following coverage of the shutdown and speaking with Republican leaders on the phone, a senior administration official said.

The Senate has voted to advance the bill to fund the government.

Some Democrats, however, voted against ending the filibuster. Another key Democratic aide complained Schumer attempted to meet the President more than halfway, essentially offering to pay for Trump's signature campaign promise in exchange for protecting the Dreamers. Democrats seem to be getting closer to a budget passage. McConnell said he would open discussions protections for Dreamers once the CR is passed. Susan Collins told reporters Monday. Trump announced his decision to end the program in September. "But I'm optimistic it is going to be".

Obamacare was unpopular in 2013, and because of that, Senator Ted Cruz and other Congressional Republicans thought they could use a government shutdown as leverage to defund it before it was fully implemented.

Trump was expected to sign the legislation, which would give Congress more time to try to reach agreement on a long-term spending bill that would resolve issues including immigration, border security and spending caps.
