McConnell accuses Democrats of throwing 'partisan tantrum' over shutdown

McConnell accuses Democrats of throwing 'partisan tantrum' over shutdown

The motion failed on a vote of 57-43. "We're going to have to put Mitch McConnell on a milk carton soon because nobody has seen the Senate majority leader".

But Democrats were split over the addition of Republican Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Doug Jones of Alabama, and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona.

Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown, a Democrat, live-tweeted the president's speech, echoed Schumer's characterization of the shutdown as a effect of a presidential "temper tantrum" and punctuated each message with #FactsMatter.

While formal negotiations to reopen the federal government haven't gone anywhere so far as we can tell, the president clearly thinks his latest gambit - a prime-time speech on border issues before his own trip to the border to dramatize the phantom specter of an immigration "crisis" - will move this thing along.

Sens. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) expressed opposition to the bill due to the partial government shutdown that has lasted 17 days as U.S. President Donald Trump has refused to sign a spending bill that does not include funding for a border wall with Mexico.

Earlier on January 8, Sen. "A significant # of Senate Democrats now support #BDS & Dem leaders want to avoid a floor vote that reveals that".

Rubio also charged Sen. "You don't solve a shutdown with a shutdown".

Representative Rashida Tlaib fired back at critics like Marco Rubio who claimed she was accusing Jews of "dual loyalty" in a tweet about his proposed new anti-BDS law. "There's an opportunity for every American to see who wants government open, and our responsibility is not to do what the president of the United States tells us to do". Let's get our priorities right'.

One of the main goals of establishing a state with Jewish sovereignty was to create a place for Jewish refugees to go in times of persecution, and to have a country to protect them. In fact, it's a foreign policy that contains as its chief measure a law that would give governments on the state and local level in America the "legal authority to boycott any US companies which themselves are participating in a boycott against Israel". "Maybe a refresher on our U.S. Constitution is in order, then get back to opening up our government instead of taking our rights away", Rashida Tlaib, one of the first Muslim women to be elected to Congress, said in a tweet.

A growing coalition of Senate Democrats - hailing primarily from states that have a large population of federal workers, as well as the contingent of senators eyeing presidential bids in 2020 - say the chamber should not vote on anything else until the shutdown ends.

It states it would 'increase protections for state and local governments in the United States that decide to divest from, prohibit investment in, and restrict contracting with companies knowingly engaged in commerce-related or investment-related BDS activity targeting Israel, ' according to Senate Republicans.

At the moment, the bill has the necessary 60 votes because of the seven Democratic co-sponsors and the support of minority "leader" Chuck Schumer.

At least 26 states have passed resolutions against doing business with pro-BDS institutions, while supporters of BDS have argued that such sanctions violate the First Amendment rights of government contractors.
