How a Government Shutdown Can Affect You!

How a Government Shutdown Can Affect You!

The Senate is bracing for a potential shutdown.

With a shutdown looming Saturday if the Senate fails to approve a temporary government funding bill, those divergent preferences pose a problem for Republicans in November's midterm elections.

A growing number of lawmakers said they opposed the deal - not over immigration, but because they are exhausted of passing stopgap measures - and demanded that negotiations continue on a longer-term spending bill.

"President Trump wants to shut down the government over his cynical and misbegotten 'big handsome wall, ' which will be paid for by United States taxpayers, NOT Mexico", Leahy said. Joe Manchin said earlier this week.

"The leader is looking to deflect blame but it just won't work".

The Senate majority leader then singled out Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) for previously saying in 2013 that it would be "governmental chaos" for the government to shut down over the immigration issue.

Republicans were demanding that a separate budget bill financing government for the rest of this year include big boosts for the military, and they accused Democrats of imperiling Pentagon funding.

Negotiations with the White House on a bipartisan compromise on DACA blew up last week after Trump reportedly referred to African nations and Haiti as "shithole countries".

In a tweet late Thursday, Independent Sen.

Democrats only saw one thing - Air Force One leaving town. Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican, said he was also frustrated citing the handling of DACA.

"Passing a short term continuing resolution ensures that both sides remain at the table and can quickly reach a deal that funds our military, our domestic priorities like the fight against opioids, protects Dreamers, funds health care and aid for those harmed by recent disasters", Schumer said.

"I can't see voting yes on cloture", Flake told reporters.

The group's leader, Representative Mark Meadows, said on Thursday there was not yet enough support among conservatives for the short-term funding measure. "There are lots of issues to deal with, and all of these important issues, this resolution kicks the can down the road and gives us no reason to believe it will be any different than the first, second, third, or fourth continuing resolution".

The Republican-controlled House approved funding through February 16 on a mostly partisan vote of 230-197, sending the stopgap bill to the Senate for consideration as President Donald Trump pushed hard for a measure to sign before Friday's deadline. Democrats were insisting on equally large increases for domestic programs for opioid treatment and veterans - efforts that many in the GOP also back.

No matter the configuration of the government - whether the Democrats hold the White House or the Republicans do, or whether one party controls all levers of power as the GOP numerically does today - these politics of shutdown never change.

Because the bill deals with spending, it will require 60 Senate votes to pass.

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) complained that Republicans had "squandered" three previous short-term extensions.

While the Senate voted to open debate late on January 18, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) declined a Democratic proposal for a quick vote in order to give the House time to work on a two-day funding bill on Friday to buy time for further negotiations.
