Pelosi says Democrats won't back short-term funding bill in Thursday vote
08 December, 2017, 02:44
Republican House conservatives and defense hawks are pushing for a separate bill to address defense spending because it would allow them to circumvent having to make a deal with Democrats on raising spending caps. They have yet to say what they will do.
On Thursday, leaders from both parties will meet with President Trump at the White House.
Pelosi also told reporters Thursday that lawmakers "will not leave here" without a deal to help immigrants who came to the USA illegally as children and are enrolled in the Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which Trump ended three months ago. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said at a press conference on Thursday that it is one of the party's priorities.
With one day to spare before a looming government shutdown, Congress passed a short-term funding measure Thursday, sending the bill to President Donald Trump's desk and providing legislators with two additional weeks to negotiate a longer-term solution.
A government shutdown would commence after Friday at midnight if Congress doesn't pass a spending bill by then.
"I want to see Senate action, and I think they owe it to the House to show us those next steps".
In a later meeting with reporters, Pelosi offered a list of reasons - including defense spending - for not supporting the CR deal.
The House has voted to avert a partial government shutdown that could have come Friday night. But GOP leaders needed those conservatives to support the measure in the House because Democrats broadly refused to vote for it. It praised Pelosi and Schumer for choosing to "put their responsibility to the American people above partisanship" and said Trump was anticipating productive talks between "leaders who put their differences aside".
Creek Fire: Firefighters steadily increase containment Tuesday's warnings are scheduled to expire at 6 p.m., but forecasters say Santa Ana winds could persist into Friday or Saturday.

McConnell, R-Ky., said he was hoping that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Democrats "will continue to work with us in good faith to pass this short-term funding bill and maintain the critical functions of the federal government". Conservatives had threatened to oppose the legislation.
House Freedom Caucus leaders emerged from a closed-door meeting with Speaker Paul Ryan Wednesday morning - their second in two days - saying no deal has been reached.
He also said Ryan promised he'd fight in coming weeks to pass a full-year budget for the military and leave fights with Democrats over domestic spending for later.
"Until we get those assurances, we are just kicking a can down the road", said Republican Representative Andy Biggs, a member of the Freedom Caucus.
"If a shutdown happens as the president seemed to be rooting for earlier in his tweet this year, it will fall on his shoulders", he said on the Senate floor Thursday.
Walker said Ryan also committed to seek to include disaster relief spending in the December 22 spending bill, as well as an effort to cut $190 billion in entitlement spending over 10 years through "some kind of work requirement for capable-bodied adults with no dependents". Conservatives say setting the deadline before Christmas, when lawmakers want to go home, gives Democrats more leverage to get higher spending into the legislation.
Many on both sides have decided a headline-grabbing federal closure would be a political blunder, at least for now.
