The US Senate approved a budget deal including a stopgap government funding bill early on Friday, but it was too late to prevent a federal shutdown that was already underway in an embarrassing setback for the Republican-controlled Congress.
The Senate delay meant more time for liberal Democrats and Republican fiscal hawks in the House to whip up votes against the bill in their chamber.
He begins the statement with, "This is no way to run a country". The deal would provide the Defense Department with an additional $80 billion over the cap while the nation's domestic budget would receive a boost of about $60 billion.
But the fate of the overall budget deal remained uncertain Wednesday, with House conservatives expressing concerns about the increased deficit spending and House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., saying the agreement does nothing to protect undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children. The bill would also provide long overdue disaster funding for Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico months after hurricanes devastated homes, infrastructure and coastlines there. Rand Paul (R-KY), who single-handedly blocked action in the Senate before a midnight funding deadline, as he criticized fellow Republicans for backing a two-year budget deal which features nearly $300 billion in spending increases in 2018 and 2019.
Chuck Schumer, D-New York, McConnell tweeted, "I'm happy to announce that our bipartisan, bicameral negotiations on defense spending and other priorities have yielded a significant agreement". That omission largely explains why a quarter of Senate Democrats and two-thirds of House Democrats voted no, and why immigration now because the next battle.
The measure would keep the government running through March 23 and reauthorize funding for community health centers that enjoy widespread bipartisan support. It was the government's second shutdown in three weeks, and most lawmakers were eager to avoid a big show of dysfunction in an election year. "I think it's important that we have this debate", he said.
The Senate agreement on a two-year, almost $400 billion budget deal would provide Pentagon and domestic programs with huge spending increases.
"If you're against president (Barack) Obama's deficits, but you're for the Republican deficits, isn't that the very definition of hypocrisy?" he boomed, adding that he wants his fellow lawmakers "to feel uncomfortable" over the impasse.
The breakdown came largely in the senate, when, after a day of inaction, Republican senator Rand Paul of Kentucky went rogue and stalled a vote in protest over his party's willingness to burst the budget.
"Senator Schumer and I had a good meeting this morning about a caps deal and the other issues we've been discussing for some months now".
