GOP Senator Blames Trump Aide for Impasse

  • Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney right listens as Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short speaks with reporters in the White House briefing room about a possible government shutdown Friday Jan. 19 2018 in Washington

Any credible deal to resolve the shutdown may depend on Mr Trump yielding ground on measures like deporting people.

"We want to see a commitment to take up immigration", said Senator Tim Kaine, Democrat of Virginia, told The New York Times, "with a belief that we'll get to a good result for Dreamers".

At that time, the Republicans will need 60 votes for the legislation to move forward.

McConnell has long defended the filibuster.

"There is a commitment from Republicans to try to do something about it, but no guarantee that they will".

At least one Republican dissenter indicated on Sunday that he would support the bill. "We've been at this for 50 years", he said.

United States senators are attempting to agree on a bill to fund the government, which is in its second day of shutdown.

Gruden has prior history with Oakland, serving as the head coach for four seasons and compiling a 38-26 record over the span. Former Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin, however, was apparently eager to get back to coaching for the 2018 season.

President Donald Trump kept a low profile Sunday, and has been accused by Democrats of shifting his positions on a DACA deal, reportedly scuppering a last minute agreement under the influence of hard-right adviser Stephen Miller.

"We are no dictatorship subject to the whims of an executive, just as we are not a one-party system where the victor of an election gets to decide everything and the minority nothing", the New York Democrat said minutes after McConnell's address to the chamber. "Numerous Republicans said they were perfectly comfortable waging the shutdown fight on those terms, though Democrats have sought to expand the playing field to other issues such as funding to combat opioid abuse and pension bailouts". Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) on the Senate floor Sunday night. "That's why we're here", Schumer said.

Sanders maintains that government funding legislation must provide legal status for the roughly 700,000 young immigrants brought illegally to the U.S.as children. On Saturday, White House aides said they would not negotiate on immigration until the government re-opened. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) proposed a bill to keep the government open through Monday. USA stocks were mixed in early trading. He says the soldiers and their families "shouldn't have to worry about getting paid".

Over the weekend, Trump encouraged the Senate's Republican leaders to invoke the "nuclear option" - a procedural maneuver to change the chamber's rules to allow passage of a budget by a simple majority of 51 votes to end the shutdown.

While the government shutdown is now on its third day, Monday was the first day that hundreds of thousands of government employees were furloughed and not able to go to work.

CNN listed some of the senators who voted against the bill. He says he's opposed to short-term fiscal bills.

Harris said she did not trust McConnell's commitment to Democrats that in exchange for a deal to end the shutdown the Senate would debate immigration issues, such as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which Trump's administration announced previous year that it meant to terminate. "We can not open the government without Senate Democrats" support".

They're just bad people.' Well, yeah, most Muslims believe that to have sex with men is OK, which I don't like it all. In a following episode he revealed what he felt about gay people: "You know, I don't like gay people".

The shutdown is now in its second day.

Graham said no deal had been reached by the moderate group because Democrats were not yet on board.

Friday's vote fell 50-49, far short of the 60 needed to advance the bill.

Durbin tells ABC's "This Week" that "we have to acknowledge a respect for the minority".

White House budget director Mick Mulvaney is defending himself from charges of hypocrisy in his attacks on Democrats over the government shutdown, given his own role at the center of the last fiscal clash in 2013.

"This is ridiculous, open the government back up and then we'll get back to negotiations", Ryan said on CBS. "If there is a shutdown he won't go", one official said on condition of anonymity.

Schumer, who spoke after McConnell, countered that the majority leader blocked a separate measure to fund the military amid the shutdown.
