Oppose Senate bill S.1

Marco Rubio: Rashida Tlaib's Dual Loyality Suggestion 'anti-Semitic'

Ultimately, the issue is not the shutdown, but an insecure Democratic leadership seemingly unable to control a growing minority of anti-Semites among its ranks who refuse to acknowledge the critical importance of Israel to American interests.

Leaving aside these two representatives' real views, which I oppose, it's unsafe for democracy if officials blatantly lie to their constituents about issues that can change votes.

On Monday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY told fellow Democrats he would vote to block debate on the measure until McConnell agrees to take up House-passed bills to reopen the closed government departments. The move is meant to call out Republican tactics to move forward on Trump's border wall between the United States and Mexico. Some 800,000 federal workers are about to miss their first paycheck, and money for programs including food stamps and federal housing assistance is at risk of drying up after funding for a quarter of the government ran out December 22.

The White House has rejected House Democrats' approach, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has insisted repeatedly that he will not bring up any bill in the Senate that does not have Trump's support.

"The administration is committed to working with the Congress to reopen agencies affected b lapsed appropriations, but any effort to do so must address the security and humanitarian crisis on our Southwest border and should restore funding for all agencies affected by the lapse", a statement of administration policy declared.

Senate Passes Bill to Pay Federal Employees After Shutdown
The House also passed a bill by a bipartisan vote of 411-7 that would provide back pay to federal workers once the shutdown ends. Lawmakers tried to reassure federal employees that Congress was aware of the financial hardship they are enduring.

On Twitter, Rubio said he would try for another vote to move forward with the bill later this week. But as of Tuesday, Republicans said they still expect most Republicans to vote against Democratic bills this week aimed at funding the government without Trump's border wall.

The ACLU opposes the Combating BDS Act on the grounds that it "sends a message to Americans who engage on issues of global importance that if they dare to disagree with their government, they will be penalized and placed in a lesser class with fewer opportunities".

Among the Democratic senators who have endorsed Van Hollen's strategy include his fellow Maryland Sen.

That point, which other Republicans have also employed in their arguments for the president's proposed wall, referred to the Secure Fence Act of 2006.

"We won't be opening until it's solved", Trump said during a Rose Garden press conference Friday.

Harrington named European Ryder Cup captain
It was confirmed on Tuesday that Harrington, 47, would lead Europe's bid to retain the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin next year.

The bill at first had widespread support, but Democrats are split over Florida Republican Sen.

"In no way did the President's speech last night make a persuasive or even a new case for an exorbitantly expensive border wall, a wall that the President guaranteed would be paid by Mexico", Schumer said on the Senate floor Wednesday. "Unfortunately, President Trump keeps rejecting the bipartisan House-passed bills".

"The problem right now is that there are those who feel very passionately that we should not do anything unless the government is open", Menendez told Al Jazeera.

McConnell went on to say partisan tantrums are no way to govern, and claimed Democrats should seek treatment for their allergies to border security.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., agreed that reopening the government is the main priority but added that the bill itself is an affront to the First Amendment.

Bolton reassures Israel about Trump's Syria plan
