Who to blame for shutdown? What does it matter?

Who to blame for shutdown? What does it matter?

It remains the case that the government would be fully open for business if Democrats had not voted against a bill - a bill, again, which has nothing of substance they oppose - to get leverage for the policy they favor. He said he would support a continuing resolution to keep the government funded for a few days, but that a longer term one - like the one in the House-passed proposal - he would have a hard time supporting.

Given that, the most likely outcome at this point is a government shutdown - the first time that will have happened since 2013. "The discussions will continue", Schumer told reporters after the meeting, also attended by each man's chief of staff - John Kelly for Trump and Mike Lynch for Schumer. Their reason for opposing a government funding bill that fully funds the health care program for 9 million American children? The bill needed 60 votes in the 100-member Senate but fell short, with only 50 supporting it.

The White House's decision to hold a press briefing - featuring Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney - on Friday also suggests it has pivoted toward positioning for a likely shutdown.

While the majority of Americans say that passing a bill to protect "Dreamers" is not as important as funding the federal government, the program is still overwhelmingly supported. Meanwhile, Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, of conservative-leaning West Virginia, said on Wednesday he would be a yes vote.

The federal government will run out of money and shut down at midnight.

"I mean you just have a President that is not leading and not getting people into a room and not shouting, and cajoling, and laughing, and having a good time, and having a bad time", he said.

House Republicans passed the spending bill out of their chamber Thursday night, but the bill's future in the Senate is precarious with more than a dozen Democrats already having announced they'd vote against it. That includes more than 1.3 million people on active duty in the military who would be required to work but would not be paid until funding is renewed or handled with separate legislation.

Only six Democrats broke rank to vote in favor of the stopgap measure's continued CHIP funding.

Schumer said that if Democrats voted to approve it, "there will be no incentive to negotiate, and we'll be right back here in a month with the same problems at our feet", The New York Times reported. "That's what we do, we run the government, and we will run the government if a bill passes, we will run the government if a bill doesn't pass".

But Senator Chuck Schumer admitted that a "good number of disagreements" remain between his party and Trump's Republicans, as the clock ticked towards a midnight deadline.

They were given temporary legal status under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program started by former President Barack Obama.
