Clock Ticks Down to Possible US Government Shutdown

"If not, the failure to reauthorize CHIP and the closure of our federal government will rest exclusively with them". That bill would break spending caps that lawmakers set in 2011, but it would not simultaneously raise those limits for non-defense spending.
Senate Democrats last night promised to stall a vote on the measure because it does not address restoring the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that protects hundreds of thousands of kids from being deported.
Trump touted his accomplishments during a speech in Pennsylvania Thursday afternoon. He says he's struck a deal with House Speaker Paul Ryan that would bolster military spending and allow a future vote on a conservative immigration bill. If anything, it may make Senate passage of the four-week continuing resolution (CR) even more hard. The Senate debated the bill, but ultimately voted to adjourn until Friday at 11 a.m., leaving the Senate only one day before the government shuts down. Right now, a key sticking point between Republicans and Democrats is whether to pass another continuing resolution for a short-term fix or come to a more hard but longer-lasting budget compromise, and whether to include a DACA fix in the spending bill to protect undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children. Democrats are threatening not to back the stopgap funding measure unless a deal is reached to protect so-called Dreamers from deportation - young people who entered the U.S. illegally as children.
"I have to laugh when people say that, 'Oh, we control the House, the Senate, the White House, why can't you get this done?' You know as well as anybody that it takes 60 votes in the Senate to pass an appropriations bill", Mulvaney said in response to a briefing question from CNN's Jim Acosta. House Republicans at first seemed likely to call it quits for the week Friday morning as the odds of a deal on the CR were looking slim, but they changed their tune as the morning progressed. If the Senate fails to reach an agreement over the bill, which the House of Representatives passed on Thursday, federal government agencies will shut down.
"They don't oppose anything in the bill, but they're opposing the bill", Mulvaney said. Even Republican leaders acknowledge that.
"We do not support perpetuating the current budgetary dysfunction that is hurting our country and our commonwealth", Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Dick Durbin (D-ILL) among others, that would provide protections to Dreamers, fund border security, and eliminate an immigration lottery aimed at promoting diversity. "And I think that's obviously problematic".
In a Twitter broadside that rattled Republican nerves, Trump blasted the GOP congressional leadership's decision to attach tens of billions of dollars in funding for a popular children's health program to the spending bill.
But short of those possibilities, or some other last-minute option, Congress still appears to be veering toward a shutdown that should have been entirely preventable.
The Turpin children were often tied up for "weeks or even months at a time", Hestrin told a roomful of reporters on Thursday. Under federal law, cellphones - even those that are no longer operational - must be able to call emergency services.
Viacom fell 5.4 percent after sources told Reuters CBS Corp and the company were not in active merger discussions. Deutsche Bank lost 0.8 per cent after it was accused in a lawsuit of conspiring to rig a Canadian benchmark rate.
That would be an indication the government is open, even if he signs the actual bill at a later time. "I think it's ratcheted up". In September, Mr Trump announced he was ending the programme and allowing Congress until March to come up with a replacement.
