Pelosi: We're Giving 'Nothing for the Wall'

‘Could be a while’: Trump refuses to budge in shutdown standoff Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez already has plans to defy Pelosi

On Thursday, Pelosi will introduce two bills to fund the shuttered agencies, but she noted that they "contain no new wall funding".

Before the shutdown began on December 22, Trump said during a testy meeting with Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, the Democratic senator for NY, that he would take responsibility for any federal government stoppage.

Democrats seize control of the House on Thursday with fresh voices and new energy as they prepare to take on President Donald Trump, many of them inspired to run because of his presidency.

After two years in which Republicans controlled the White House, Senate and the House of Representatives, Democrats will be the majority in the House. "How many more times can we say no?" They plan to pass legislation to fund the federal departments now shut down. Mr. Trump is unwilling to sign any bill which does not include sufficient funding for a border wall.

If you thought House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) would be ruthless in accomplishing her agenda, you might not be wrong according to her daughter Alexandra.

"We have to wait and see what happens with the Mueller report".

"We must not handcuff our new Democratic majority, so PAYGO is a no go for me", Ryan said. I'm effective politically, as a fundraiser - the best.

In addition, Democrats are eliminating a rarely used rule that allowed any lawmaker to file a motion to force a vote on ousting the speaker. They want to throw punches. "In other words a total nonstarter", McConnell told the Senate, The Hill reported.

Among the first tasks of the 116th Congress will be ending a almost two-week government shutdown that has left one quarter of federal agencies shuttered due to lapsed funding. The historic firsts come from both parties and at least one member will be younger than 30. "I remain ready and willing to work with Democrats to pass a bill that secures our borders, supports the agents and officers on the ground, and keeps America Safe".

Earlier Wednesday, Trump said at a Cabinet meeting that the shutdown will last "as long as it takes", adding that it "could be a long time, or it could be quickly".

Rep. Tim Ryan has often criticized House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, including whether she should be reelected as speaker, but he said Wednesday Democrats are "absolutely" united behind her while she negotiates to end the government shutdown.
