Failure by US Senate to agree on new budget forces govt shutdown

21 January 2018, 12:13 | Brenda Erickson

Why the US government shut down and what it means

Congress Likely Racing Toward a Government Shutdown

He had previously warned the President to "heed his own words", quoting Trump saying a shutdown would be "a tremendously negative mark on the President of the United States". "Dems want a Shutdown in order to help diminish the great success of the Tax Cuts, and what they are doing for our booming economy".

The federal government shut down at the stroke of midnight after a last-ditch vote on a House-passed short-term federal spending plan fell well short in the Senate.

However, the Democrats conditioned their support for the funding bill, on that Trump and the Republicans agree to regularise almost 800,000 undocumented youth known as "dreamers".

Democrats, who are seeking to capitalize on any Republican failings during a mid-term election year, may also be faulted after they wouldn't budge on demands to protect from deportation some 700,000 "Dreamers" who came to the country illegally as children.

WhatsApp testing 'demote' feature for group chat admins
We say so as it is common for us to mute large groups that will result in skipping important conversations and messages. If you're the group admin, you - and only you, if you're the only admin - will be allowed to send any messages.

That would leave scores of federal agencies across the country unable to continue operating, and hundreds of thousands of "non-essential" federal workers would be put on temporary unpaid leave.

But essential services will still run.

Even with that majority, the government shutdown was somewhat expected. We are not going to weaponize it.

As almost all Democrats and some Republicans opposed the measure, the government shut down at midnight. "We all know what the problem is, it's complete disarray on the Republican side", said Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer. But in each of these cases people will not be paid, Mulvaney said. The Office of Management and Budget estimated that roughly 850,000 employees were furloughed per day at the peak of the shutdown. The previous shutdown before that was for 21 days that ended on January 6, 1996.

Steve Bannon subpoenaed to special counsel in Russian Federation probed
Mark Warner (D-VA), the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, also wants to hear what Bannon has to say. But Trump accused Bannon of having "lost his mind" when news of his comments to Wolff surfaced earlier this month .

Donald Trump has blamed Democrats for the failure of budget talks that have forced the USA government to shut down.

"Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer has persuaded his caucus to shut down the government over a totally false pretext". In recent weeks Dreamers and pro-immigration activists have been holding protests and sit-ins in Washington to pressure U.S. Democrats on including the protections in the spending bill.

He was forced to cancel his weekend trip to Florida where he was planning to celebrate his year as president at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

Minutes before the 12 a.m. deadline, the White House released a statement labeling the impasse the "Schumer Shutdown" and laying the blame on Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, who failed to reach a last-minute agreement during a meeting with President Trump yesterday afternoon.
