¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Why no one knows anything as the government nears a shutdown

While the House of Representatives passed a short-term spending bill to fund the government until February 16th late on Thursday, Republicans did not have enough support in the Senate to endorse the proposal.

Despite this progress, the bill faces an extremely tough road to pass the Senate before the government is set to shut down on Friday at midnight. "It is risky, it is reckless and it is wrong", he told reporters.

Schumer is expected to meet with Trump shortly.

"We discussed all of the major outstanding issues. The discussions will continue", Schumer said.

In a Friday morning tweet, Trump acknowledged that Democratic votes are needed to approve the measure; but, he suggested Democrats' demands for immigration protection could derail chances for the bill's passage, leading to a shutdown. The Republicans were pointing fingers at Democratic demands on DACA, protection for immigrants brought here illegally as children.

Given temporary legal status under a programme started by former President Barack Obama, these "Dreamers", as they are called, were brought into the USA, largely from Mexico and Central America, as children. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.). "This bill lets expire.so many things important for the health of the American people, not only community health centers, not only Medicare extenders, [but also] the Special Diabetes Program, teaching health centers, the National Health Service Corps, and safety-net hospitals".

In September, President Trump ordered an end to the Obama administration program that shielded young undocumented immigrants who were brought to the US illegally as children.

Senate rejection would leave the pathway ahead uncertain with only one guarantee: finger-pointing by both parties, which began as that chamber debated the measure. Now that we're 13 hours away from a government shutdown that Democrats would initiate and Democrats would own, the craziness of this seems to be dawning on my friend, the Democratic leader ... "We don't want the government to shut down and we feel it's the obligation of the majority to work with us to make sure that does not happen". They also noted that Trump rejected a proposed bipartisan deal among a handful of senators that would have resolved the conflict over how to protect hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation. In the Senate, they will need a supermajority of 60 votes to pass a spending bill to keep the government open, meaning they need Democratic votes. It went back into effect at the beginning of this year, although the IRS said this week that it will not enforce any penalties for late payments of the medtech levy.

Asked whether there is openness to a short-term funding measure, the official reiterated that that the White House still wants a two-year bill, but added, "we're open to keeping the government open".

"We've got a perfectly good one on the floor we can vote on this afternoon", Cornyn said. "We need to get his resolved, we need to get to agreement". "This is exactly what they're doing and it's completely unnecessary to hold the government hostage for something that's completely unrelated". "We should take those two issues up in sequence".

Democrats in the Senate have served notice they will filibuster a four-week, government-wide funding bill that cleared the House Thursday evening.

Meanwhile, some Republican senators have said they already intend to vote against it because they believe the short-term funding will harm the military. Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia has indicated that he was leaning in favour of the stopgap measure. Sen.
