Are Donald and Chuck preparing Republicans for one final shutdown indignity?

House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis. center accompanied by his Press Secretary Ash Lee Strong right walks to the Capitol Building from the Capitol Visitor's Center Thursday Jan. 18 2018 in Washington

The passage of the bill and the presidential approval has to be done before midnight Friday otherwise the working of the federal government would come to a standstill. After the meeting, Schumer told reporters that they made some progress but still have "a good number of disagreements".

Now the bill will go to the Senate for approval, where the Democrat lawmakers said they would block the measure. "We do not want a shutdown", Mulvaney said.

Democratic leaders and the White House blamed each other for the failed Senate vote that helped trigger the shutdown on Friday night.

"They appeared committed to sending us home, but it seems they began to worry about someone objecting to [unanimous consent] on a short-term bridge CR", one Republican member told TWS. (What was that about "legislative arson"?) Democrats and the Obama administration rejected this, and almost 800,000 federal employees were out of work without pay for 16 days.

Liberals were in uproar when Trump a year ago ordered the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Daca) programme, which shielded Dreamers from deportation, to end this March.

Democrats have been demanding that Congress act now to protect the young immigrants who are shielded under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which Trump plans to end on March 5.

Almost half of those surveyed (48 percent) said the Republican majority in Congress and President Donald Trump are to blame for the situation devolving into a likely shutdown, according to the poll conducted Monday through Thursday, before the House of Representatives passed a short-term funding plan late Thursday.

The optics of being in Mar-a-Lago during a government shutdown would be bad, the official said, but so far the contingency plan being most discussed is delaying departure until Saturday.

Schumer continued to admonish Trump on the Senate floor: "Tomorrow marks a year to the day President Trump took the oath of office on the Capitol steps".

The U.S. Senate is expected to resume debate Friday morning on a bill to fund the government through mid-February.

Democrats have served notice they will filibuster the bill, seeking to shape a subsequent measure but exposing themselves to charges they are responsible for a looming shutdown.

"The reason we're here right now is our friends on the other side of the aisle say, 'Solve this illegal immigration problem right now or we're going to shut the government down, '" he said.

"They need 60 votes in the United States Senate, they don't have 60 votes and that means you have got to negotiate, they have not negotiated".

What happens when the government shuts down?

Both houses have passed several shorter-term spending bills as efforts continued to reach a bipartisan deal.
