US Home passes measure to fund authorities and finish…

Though the impact would initially be spotty - since most agencies would be closed until Monday - the story would be certain to dominate weekend news coverage, and each party would be gambling the public would blame the other. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) offered a bill to keep the government open through Monday. But it's also a move that the Democrats should have seen coming, and should have had a better plan for addressing. He added that "negotiating with this White House is like negotiating with Jell-O".

Only six Democrats broke rank to vote in favor of the stopgap measure's continued CHIP funding.

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) was among those who voted today to reopen the government and vowed to continue working toward a long-term, bipartisan compromise on a number of key OH priorities. It's incredibly important that we find a fix for DACA recipients as they are so important to our communities and to our future. Rand Paul, both Republicans. "It is now time for the Senate to follow suit and act responsibly to avert a government shutdown", Lance said.

The U.S. Senate on Monday approved by an 81-to-18 vote a measure to fund the federal government through February 8, sending the bill to the House of Representatives. "They implored us to extend CHIP to 9 million children across the country who rely upon it", but after it was included in the continuing resolution, "the answer, so far, is 'Forget about it".

One of the bill's "no" votes, U.S. Sen. "I hope they set aside this ideological course and work to reopen the government and solve these pressing problems".

After this vote, the minority indicated they were willing to come to the table and asked that House leadership delay putting up for a floor vote the bill that had passed out of Committee. President Trump has been rooting for a shutdown and now he's got it. Both Republicans and Democrats want it to happen. This gives Democrats the power to force a shutdown. Almost 700,000 of them could lose relief from deportation because Trump previous year, and the rate of people losing protections each day will skyrocket in March if Congress doesn't act.

Other shutdowns occurred in 1995 and 1996.

"Bipartisan, bicameral negotiations have been underway for months". Democrats would have helped it easily evade a filibuster in the Senate.

After three days of closure, the Senate voted Monday to re-open the federal government for three weeks, pushing off sticky immigration issues until next month. As a result, if kids were to lose their CHIP coverage and go onto the individual exchanges instead, the federal premium subsidies would cost more than their CHIP coverage.
