Republicans Seek Support for Stopgap Government Funding Measure

"If the Democrats won the election, the stock market would have gone down 50 percent from where it was", Trump said.

A shutdown of the federal government is not the end of the world; the country has been through such drama before. Regardless, there is no reason why that bill has to get done before the budget.

Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-Queens), chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said Republicans wrote their spending plan without Democrats, and if they want Democratic votes, the measure must be "reflective of Democratic values". They insist the talks are going well, while offering no details.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, told reporters he met with Durbin, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer on Wednesday, and that the group plans to meet again on Thursday to hammer out details of the immigration proposal.

Republicans can not fund the government on their own and one of the long talked-about solutions to getting Democrats on board had been to come up with a plan to protect the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the program that protects those who entered the undocumented minors.

Ryan will have to win over key skeptics to get the temporary spending bill passed, particularly if Democrats unanimously oppose a measure with no agreement to protect the "Dreamers". Whether such a stop-gap funding bill could pass is unclear; opposition to a short-term deal is bubbling up from conservatives and liberals alike.

Patty Schachtner's victory Tuesday over state Rep. Adam Jarchow marks the 34th legislative seat that has flipped from Republican to Democrat nationwide since President Donald Trump took office a year ago, according to the national Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee, signaling backlash against Trump could fuel a Democratic wave in November.

Political observers and activists involved in the District 10 Senate race said a myriad of issues helped St. Croix County Medical Examiner Patty Schachtner's defeat Rep. Adam Jarchow, R-Balsam Lake, in Tuesday's special election to replace former Sen.

Frustrations over the immigration deadlock boiled over in NY, where three people were arrested protesting immigration policy, and in Washington, where police said 82 people were arrested in a Senate office building during a sit-in urging protection of immigrants.

Republicans headed into the new year hoping to spend much of 2018 touting the passage of Trump's signature tax bill.

CNN's Gloria Borger and Jim Acosta reported this week that Trump is convinced that despite the furor over his attack on African nations, his language will play well with his most loyal supporters. They say lawmakers have until March - when Trump ordered the program to expire - to find a compromise.

Trump rejected the deal, declaring it "outlandish" and a "setback" in a series of tweets on Friday morning. "As soon as we figure out what he is for, then I would be convinced that we were not just spinning our wheels going to this issue on the floor but actually dealing with a bill that has a chance to become law and therefore solve the problem". The programme now protects roughly 700,000 people, mostly Hispanic young adults, from deportation and provides them work permits.

Republicans have enough votes to push a measure through the House if they stay largely united.

CHIP is a federal-state matching program that serves almost nine million children whose families would otherwise not be able to afford insurance. States have been limping along on unused funds and prior short-term fixes.

Lawmakers agree on the need for a long-term reauthorization of CHIP, but they disagree over how to cover the $14.5 billion annual cost. He added that the temporary proposal falls short on issues such as confronting the opioid epidemic or providing funding for community health centers. It ran out September 30, and lawmakers have been arguing ever since about how to pay for a reauthorization that both parties say they want.

It pays for health care for 9 million children from low-income families, and authorization for it expired October 1.
