Who is to blame for the US government shutdown?

Then-White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon listens as President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting on cyber security in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington Tuesday Jan. 31 2017

In the House, the conservative House Freedom Caucus confidently told any reporter who'd listen that they had enough votes in their caucus to stop the bill, assuming every Democrat opposed the measure.

What's also different about this shutdown is that everything is more forgettable in the frenetic news cycle of the Trump era. DACA was created during President Obama's tenure.

"It's next to impossible to strike a deal with the President, because he can't stick to the terms", Schumer said.

Until Congress can unify, the government shutdown will continue. By about 7 p.m. both chambers resigned themselves to failure and agreed to resume work on Sunday.

Texas IRS employees are still preparing for the start of the tax filing season after the newly passed tax law. He fired off a tweet that appeared to reject the GOP plan for a short-term funding bill that would buy time for more negotiation, but the White House walked it back.

Veterans benefit checks, disability pay and GI bill payments will continue but if a soldier is killed in the line of duty their family members will not receive their $100,000 death benefit. "President Trump is so mercurial it's been impossible to get him to agree to anything". But visitors were turned away from the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia and the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island in New York Harbor.

"He didn't weigh in until right before the vote", the source said, describing it as "annoying". Some will stay home because their offices will be closed.

The White House and Republicans blamed Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer for the shutdown, as over 40 Senate Democrats blocked the passage of a four-week stopgap spending bill on Friday. "I have found this out, Leader McConnell has found this out, Speaker Ryan has found this out". That bill would break spending caps that lawmakers set in 2011, but it would not simultaneously raise those limits for non-defense spending.

The White House, in its statement on Twitter, wants it to be known as "SchumerShutdown".

"You can hear the crickets chirping in the hallway", Connolly said on Saturday evening.

Democrats are behind in money and have no leader or celebrity, save Barack Obama, to help rake in funds.

The Daily Caller News Foundation is working hard to balance out the biased American media.

"It's ironic that they get paid - meaning Congress - and the rest of the government doesn't", said Dawn Gaither, 57, a Washington teacher.

The White House later said in a statement that Trump supported keeping the government funded, but the incident illustrated the uphill battle Republicans leaders faced during a day full of whipping votes.

Democrats have accused the President of pandering to his populist base while Mr Trump has accused them of being "far more concerned with illegal immigrants than they are with our great military or safety at our dangerous southern Border".

But Trump, himself, has suggested he should be on the hook for the impasse.

"The President's behavior is inimical to compromise, which is required to get things done in government".

"We're just in a holding pattern".

Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response will stop activities related to medical countermeasures against chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and emerging threats, the Hospital Preparedness Program, and will not fully staff the National Disaster Medical System.
