Federal government to reopen after House passes budget deal

Federal government to reopen after House passes budget deal

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has said that President Donald Trump's support is a must for any immigration reform bill to proceed and that the lower chamber will address DACA separately from appropriations.

He begins the statement with, "This is no way to run a country".

And liberal stalwarts including top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi were also in revolt because the deal does nothing to protect immigrants known as "Dreamers", who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, from deportation.

The agreement also includes disaster relief for areas still coping with hurricane and wildfire cleanup efforts and additional funding for opioid treatment, each a priority for Democrats. Rand Paul, R-Ky., delayed the vote on the bipartisan measure to rail against his fellow Republicans for acquiescing to more spending than they ever did under President Obama.

Pairing the Pentagon's budget with only temporary money for the rest of the government wouldn't go anywhere in the Senate, vowed Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, who said it "would be barreling head first into a dead-end".

Democrats cancelled a retreat due to urgent nature of the bill, which does not contain any amendment to United States immigration law, the major issue that ultimately led to a shutdown last month, as a result of lawmakers failing to reach an agreement. This Bill is a BIG VICTORY for our Military, but much waste in order to get Dem votes.

The debt ceiling will be raised by the appropriate amount until March 2019.

Voting in the House is now underway.

House Intel Republicans plan to wall off aides from Democratic staffers - literally
The dramatic fight over the release of these memos is the latest evidence of climbing tension within the House intel committee. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes insisted on releasing it without these reviews.

The full Senate is expected to vote on the deal Wednesday afternoon.

"Now we have Republicans hand in hand with Democrats offering us trillion-dollar deficits", he said.

However, McConnell said he anticipates Congress will pass one last another short-term bill by Thursday that will be needed to provide enough time to write and prepare the legislation to accommodate the new agreement.

The House has approved a shortened measure funding the government crossing the deadline of Thursday and averted another partial shutdown in just a few weeks, because the negotiation continued for the two-year deal.

The reason for that was a nine-hour, on-again, off-again Senate floor speech by Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul, who objected to deficit spending in the bill. Pelosi wants the same assurance from Ryan. "But the amusing thing is you know so often in the media we hear 'we want you to work together.' They are are working together but working together to spend a ton of money".

The proposal also represents a sharp change in tone for Republicans who under President Barack Obama railed strongly for fiscal austerity and warned about a ballooning national debt, and are now in effect removing barriers to spending previously put in place in part by leaders from their own party.

Some lawmakers, including Flake, have suggested they may have to fall back on a temporary DACA extension with modest border security measures if lawmakers can not agree on a broader immigration reform bill.

Democrats want to extend the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which lets the immigrants temporarily live and work in the US but that Trump would end March 5.
