Trump calls for 'good shutdown' to fix mess in Senate

Trump calls for 'good shutdown' to fix mess in Senate

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said there had been no "constructive engagement" from the White House on the spending plan to stave off a government shutdown. The plan fails to fund numerous things Trump promised while on the campaign trail previous year - most notably, it omits funding for Trump's "big, handsome wall" that would divide the US from Mexico. Each was rejected, however, with Trump signaling last month that the wall issue could be addressed in the next round of spending bills.

Negotiators on the bill say it looks pretty much like the measure would have looked like if it had been ironed out previous year under Obama - save for Trump's add-ons for the Pentagon and the border. Hopefully, Republicans in Congress will do for the next budget what they did for this one: "ignore President Trump's demands, work with Democrats, and get it done", Sen.

The one thing most aren't doing is committing themselves to supporting a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare that's a top priority for the Trump administration but is particularly unpopular in California The reluctance of California Republicans who fear losing re-election over the bill is a serious problem for national GOP leaders - who are desperate for a win and can only afford to lose 23 votes from among their 238 members in the U.S. House.

House Republicans worked to undo former President Barack Obama's law overhauling the nation's financial rules, arguing that it is undermining economic growth. "We've got a long ways to go between now and September", he told reporters. "No longer are the needs of our military going to be held hostage for increases in domestic spending".

"I'm personally thrilled there's $860 million in new money in fighting opioid addiction". The funds would also not be included in calculating the starting point for future negotiations over defense spending. And he tried to explain that the spending bill had to be a compromise due to the threat of a filibuster from Democrats in the Senate.

The resulting deal, reached late Sunday night, includes a $15 billion boost in funding for the military. Patty Murray (D., Wash.) said.

"Moving forward parity isn't an issue", Murray said. However, the chances of passing the measure appeared to be on the rocks as multiple high-profile lawmakers said they remained unsold over concerns the changes would lead to higher costs for people with preexisting conditions. Nonetheless, McCain said that he was pleased that GOP negotiators got some military spending increases. "I'm upset about a lot of provisions".

Why Macron Won The French Presidential Race
Capturing the presidency is a remarkable achievement for Macron, who built his En Marche! movement in just the past one year. The final count from the interior ministry put his total at 66.1 per cent of the vote against Ms Le Pen's 33.9 per cent.

"At the end of the day, that's who we think won in this discussion and this negotiation - not the Democrats, not the Republicans, but the American people", Mulvaney said.

White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney criticized Democrats for claiming victory in a way that "doesn't bode very well for future discussions".

Clearly enraged by the Democrats celebrating what they see as a victory, Trump likely urged Mulvaney to spin the situation in his favor.

Vice President Mike Pence said the administration "couldn't be more pleased" and called the agreement it a "budget deal that's a bipartisan win for the American people".

"Make no mistake, we are beginning to build the wall", the president said.

Democrats say House Republicans up for re-election next year will face a backlash from voters over the bill. Asked to explain Trump's advocacy for a shutdown, Mulvaney said, "Right now I'm not anxious about September, I'm anxious about this deal that's in front of us".

Not all Republicans were happy with the deal. Sen. Here's Republican Senator from South Carolina Lindsey Graham on CNN. "I know this budget reflects Democrat Party thinking", said Limbaugh, who rattled off the measure's continued funding of sanctuary cities, the Environmental Protection Agency and Planned Parenthood as examples.
