US Congress averts US government shutdown for now

US Congress averts US government shutdown for now

The president signed the two-week spending measure in private at the White House after the House and Senate acted to prevent a government shutdown this weekend.

These "Dreamer" immigrants are viewed sympathetically by the public and most lawmakers but face deportation in a few months because Trump reversed administrative protections provided to them by former President Barack Obama. Privately, congressional aides said little progress had been made.

As part of those negotiations the House and Senate are leaning toward agreeing to include a repeal of the individual mandate, which would be the last straw for the ACA.

"We had a productive conversation on a wide variety of issues".

A joint statement from the Democratic leaders in the House and Senate - Nancy Pelosi of California and and Chuck Schumer of NY - said it was a "productive conversation on a wide variety of issues". The funding reprieve comes as the White House and congressional leaders are negotiating a longer-term agreement, building off a Thursday meeting involving Trump and congressional leaders. "Nothing specific has been agreed to, but discussions continue", said Capitol Hill's top Democrats, Sen.

The bill was moved to conference Monday with a supporting vote from Faso, who said it was better to get another opportunity to amend the bill than to just take on the Senate's version as part of the reconciliation process through which the bill was passed.

"I want to avoid a headline that says President Trump's administration just passes the highest spending levels in US history", Meadows told reporters.

GOP leaders said they agreed with the need to address immigration, including the nearly 1 million immigrants given protections by Obama, many of whom have only known America as their home. The Senate followed up by approving the bill 81-14.

Pelosi and Schumer have both said that they are willing to make a deal for protections for DREAMers that includes border security funds sought by Republicans, but not funding for a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border that the White House continues to call for.

Negotiations are sure to be challenging.

"The White House is supportive, but also I think that we recognize the ability of Congress to self-regulate", he said. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi staked out a hard line on Thursday and insisted that any year-end deal would include help for immigrants brought to the US illegally as children. But GOP leaders needed those conservatives to support the measure in the House because Democrats broadly refused to vote for it.

The conservative House Freedom Caucus is pushing Ryan to try to force Democrats to accept higher military funding without any increase in domestic funding.

The House is scheduled to vote Thursday on a bill that would fund the government through December 22 while lawmakers negotiate a longer spending bill.

Short said the administration planned to outline its priorities for welfare reform next year. "There will be zero support on numbers that are too high, regardless of anybody's position on that".

"The House passed all 12 appropriations bills prior to the start of the October 1 fiscal year; the Senate passed none of these bills primarily because Democrats in the Senate refused to cooperate", Faso said.

There's also a fight over Republicans' desire to increase defense spending without commensurate increases in domestic spending.

President Donald Trump's meeting with congressional leaders has relocated from the Oval Office to the White House Situation Room for a briefing on military readiness. He blamed Democrats, saying they want "illegal immigrants pouring into our country, bringing with them crime, tremendous amounts of crime". That widely popular program provides medical care to more than 8 million children. That stopgap measure could be combined with other legislation, including measures shoring up Obamacare insurance markets and extending a children's health insurance program.

The remark whetted the interest of some Republicans who see a slight upward bump in the proposed corporate tax rate as capturing needed federal revenue that would help solve other problems with the legislation, according to lobbyists.
