Bette Midler Jokes About Rand Getting Beaten Up

"We will get this solved this DACA problem". The January shutdown ended when Congress agreed on a short-term deal to keep the government running for a few weeks. While the government's ability to spend money was set to expire, there were not any immediate effects.

How long was the government shutdown? . If Congress can not pass a funding bill before midnight, the government will shut down for the second time in less than a month. It passed that chamber with a vote of 240-186, ending the brief government spending lapse. If passed, President Donald Trump is expected to put government workers back on the payroll Friday.

Senator Rand Paul was not happy. Why was he against the deal?

Included in the bill was a roughly $300 billion increase in spending for defense and non-defense programs over the next two years, another $90 billion in disaster-relief funding for places like Texas and Puerto Rico, and extensions to parts of the tax code and programs in Medicare.

"Tonight, you could feel the frustration and embarrassment growing in Congress as we exposed the hypocrisy of Republicans who are joining in an unholy alliance and spending free-for-all with Democrats at the expense of the American people and our party's supposed principles", Paul said afterward. "I'm asking for one amendment".

But the libertarian said "I object" when Senate leaders tried speeding a vote on the measure. "I want them to have to answer people at home who said, 'How come you were against President Obama's deficits and then how come you're for Republican deficits?'"

The deal runs more than 600 pages, but it is still not a long-term solution.

Fiscal conservatives squawked at new spending levels. Sen.

He from the floor noted that Republicans expressed worry and fear over rising deficit under President Barack Obama but none of that under Trump.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi predictably voted against the bipartisan budget agreement, claiming it did little to protect millions of "Dreamers" now residing in the United States.

Republican and Democratic legislative leaders praised the deal.

Trump ordered an end to the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program previous year. Progressive Democrats who have called for a replacement for the expiring Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program were frustrated because the budget deal did not include a DACA fix. On Wednesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) spoke on the floor for eight hours, extolling the virtues of immigrants and demanding a bill to protect those brought into the USA illegally as children.
