House votes to avert government shutdown, path in Senate unclear

21 Enero 2018

It is a familiar sentiment for presidents stuck in crises with Congress. During the 2013 shutdown, President Barack Obama predicted the confrontation would "break the fever" driving Republican opposition - ultimately to no avail.

In further embarrassment for Mr Trump on the anniversary of his inauguration, hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets of US cities to march against the president and his policies.

If you thought 2017 was full of political turmoil with an unorthodox president who isn't really a Republican feuding with factions in the House and Senate that seem like several GOP parties, wait until Democrats get control of congressional committees with the power of subpoenas, investigations and even possible impeachment.

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".

"This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators".

Until Congress can unify, the government shutdown will continue.

The GOP has only a one-vote Senate margin.

"We're just in a holding pattern". Trump's initial premise that politicians just needed to be prodded more to make a deal was always flawed.

Short told reporters Saturday that "it's like a 2-year-old temper tantrum".

"The President supports the continuing resolution introduced in the House", Shah said.

Republicans tried to sweeten the deal, offering Democrats a long-term extension of the Children's Health Insurance Program, or CHIP, as well as the delay of some unpopular health-care taxes. "This whole thing is set up to push a narrative they can use in the midterms". We have assets to do that and it absolutely should be done.

The Daily Caller News Foundation is working hard to balance out the biased American media. Instead, they traded accusations of responsibility for the shutdown.

It's meant to protect undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children from deportation.

The timetable to reaching a deal could be tomorrow or months for now.

Senate Minority Leader (D-N.Y.) urged Republicans to hold the vote now, so Democrats could demonstrate that Republicans didn't have the votes and lawmakers from both sides could work toward a different solution. And if Republicans can't close debate, government funding will lapse at midnight Friday. Simply put- this is an amnesty shutdown. "The true, unacceptable silliness that we go through must stop". They fell ten votes short. But now he's faulting Democrats for seeking to use the very kind of leverage now that he failed to exploit back then. Chuck Schumer said Saturday that there needs to be a big deal on a range of topics - including not just immigration, but also domestic spending levels - for the government to reopen.

White House officials insisted there was no urgency to fix DACA, which expires March 5.

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.

Later Saturday, he tweeted again about the "unprecedented success for our Country, in so many ways, since the Election".
