Bipartisan Gov't Funding Bill 'Opposite Of What I Campaigned For'

Trump tweets DACA 'probably dead'

With an immigration deal off the table, and with Republicans not having enough votes to avoid a shutdown without Democratic help, Republicans are now trying to lure Dems to support a short-term funding measure in exchange for long-term funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program, which Congress inexplicably declined to renew previous year. Instead of a blockbuster immigration deal, the lasting result of the meeting turned out instead to be Trump's infamous dismissal of certain nations of origin as "shithole" countries. Democrats continue to say that any deal must restore the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program's protections for undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children. Once the bill was through the House on a party-line vote, it would "jam" Senate Democrats because (c) it included a six-year CHIP authorization, which it would look bad for Democrats to kill, and (d) it would put vulnerable Democratic senators in a position of going along or shutting down the government in a fit of pique over the failure of Republicans to grant an immigration "amnesty".

"I'm looking for something that President Trump supports and he's not yet indicated what measure he's willing to sign", McConnell told reporters Wednesday.

There was only one problem with Ryan's strategy: Instead of removing the potential for House conservative mischief, it encouraged them to demand more.

"We're working on it". But now, with a shutdown looming over a confrontation over the DACA program for immigrants granted some leeway to work in the country because they were brought here as kids, Republicans won't be able to pass the blame.

Zidane and Real Madrid under fire after defeat
Real Madrid's embarrassing home La Liga defeat by Villarreal dominates Sunday's sporting headlines in the Spanish press. He said: "Sixteen points is very far away and now isn't the time to think about anything other than the next game".

"In its current form I'm probably a no", Representative Michelle Lujan Grisham, a Democrat, said in an interview.

Although the CHIP funding was included as an incentive for Democrats, Ryan probably will have to rely exclusively on Republican votes to get the bill through the House.

Republicans who control Congress are expected to try to push another stopgap funding bill and get it to President Donald Trump's desk before Friday's midnight deadline.

Senate Democrats in the past have decried the idea of government shutdowns, but they have suggested a willingness this week to vote against a spending bill and potentially force a shutdown if "Dreamers" don't get legal protections. A bill would need 60 votes and, currently, there are 51 Republicans and 49 members of the Democratic caucus, which includes two independents. Most likely, they will vote on another short-term stopgap spending bill that will leave major policy disputes unresolved, continuing to punt issues further down field.

He said the bipartisan bill proposed by Durbin and Graham is a "fair, down the middle compromise" that includes all of the issues Trump wanted to be addressed in a bipartisan agreement.

Republicans on Wednesday night are scrambling to secure enough votes to get a continued resolution passed that will keep the government open, averting the first federal shutdown since 2013 - but if they're unsuccessful, many GOPers plan to blame their colleagues across the aisle.

According to highlights of the draft legislation obtained by The Arizona Republic, the compromise deal calls for a shift away from the nation's longstanding family-based immigration system by eliminating the Diversity Visa Lottery program, which now uses a random lottery system to pick immigrants from countries with low rates of immigration to the U.S. But it was not yet clear whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would schedule it for a floor debate and vote. Sanders argued Democrats should be blamed if the government shuts down. The deal has faced resistance from lawmakers unsure of what Trump will support and immigration hardliners who want more concessions from Democrats. Until then, it has been communicated, sources tell CNN, that weighing in with a definitive yes-or-no answer on how they'd vote on a government funding bill isn't helpful or productive.

Sens. Thom Tillis, R-North Carolina, and James Lankford, R-Oklahoma, said in a joint statement Wednesday evening they would oppose the bill because it "falls short" on border security reforms. Deadlines force hard decisions only when legislators really believe there's no other chance to act.
