House approves short-term spending bill, Senate Democrats vow to block it

House approves short-term spending bill, Senate Democrats vow to block it

If Congress and President Trump can not agree on a short term spending bill by Friday at midnight, many federal institutions will be furloughed. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., are not expected to attend.

"Could happen", Trump said, according to a press pool report.

Republicans passed a continuing resolution Thursday evening to fund the government, but the measure is stalled in the Senate, with lawmakers deeply divided on how to move forward with the spending legislation. Overnight, the house passing a plan to temporarily keep the government up and running.

A deal is just what Congress needs to come up with and fast otherwise the government will run out of money. "Republicans have the presidency, the Senate and the House".

The House of Representatives is due to vote on the spending measure on Thursday afternoon. Trump invited Schumer during that call.

A measure has passed the House, but there are roadblocks in the Republican-controlled Senate, where 60 votes are needed, there isn't enough Democratic support and some GOP senators are voting no.

Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says "The republicans both in the Senate the House and the White House can't get their act together". Republican leaders had hoped to win some Democratic votes for the overall spending package with inclusion of the insurance to offset any Republican votes they could lose.

In that case, it's nearly to be expected Morata would argue to the point of a second yellow to defend his honor. He's showing that in every game I make this decision, like against Everton and Bournemouth .

Cassidy said that compromise with moderate Democrats will be hard as long as their priorities are illegal immigration over CHIP and keeping the government open.

Many Democrats pinned their frustration with the House-passed CR on the fact that the bill did nothing to protect hundreds of thousands of recipients of DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which expires on March 5.

Smith said sarcastically. "I mean, never in the history of - at least modern history of the country - has there been a government shutdown when a single party is in charge of Washington". However, it does not contain a solution for the so-called "dreamers", the undocumented immigrants brought to the USA as small children.

The last time a #government shutdown took place was back in 2013 when the likes of Republican Sen.

"Whether there is a government shutdown or not is entirely up to them". "We have a big immigration problem, see what's happening!"

Before the House even voted Thursday night, President Donald Trump was already putting the blame on Democrats.
