US Government shutsdown as senate fails to agree on new budget

US Government shutsdown as senate fails to agree on new budget

A measure has passed the House, but there are roadblocks in the Republican-controlled Senate, where 60 votes are needed, there isn't enough Democratic support and some GOP senators are voting no. Mr Trump phoned the NY senator to invite him to the White House to try to reach some sort of accord.

Congress overnight failed to reach an agreement on a temporary spending bill to keep the federal government from running out of money.

The last USA shutdown lasted for 16 days in October 2013, with around 800,000 workers granted leave. "We all know what the problem is, it's complete disarray on the Republican side", said Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer. White House legislative affairs director Marc Short emphasized the White House will not negotiate on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) during a shutdown.

While he didn't mention any kind of boycott the Swiss veteran said players must present a united front to force the increase. Both players slouched over in the shade between points, earning warnings about time delays from the chair umpire.

While former Democratic Leader of the House Nancy Pelosi said: "We remind you that Donald Trump, not too long ago, mentioned: "our country needs a good shutdown". Five Democrats crossed the aisle to back the measure, while four key Republicans opposed it.

Their legal status, which these young people were granted by former U.S. president Barack Obama, expires on March 5, the date from which their deportations could begin.

The last United States shutdown was in 2013 during the Barrack Obama administration.

Bitcoin price plummets to 11900 USD per BTC
The growth may not be as huge as the one of 2017 but more people in 2018 will have knowledge about Bitcoin that there was in 2017. Other major cryptocoins including Ethereum , Ripple , Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin , and more are riding the same wave of uncertainty.

The result of the government shutdown is that many government employees will now go without pay until this is resolved, with some being sent home from their posts, and other "essential" employees still expected to work. "Tonight, they put politics above our national security, military families, vulnerable children, and our country's ability to serve all Americans", she said in a statement.

Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX) said earlier Friday evening he wasn't sure if Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Schumer were talking about a potential deal.

Trump repeatedly attacked Democrats ahead of the shutdown, ignoring the fact that some members of his own party planned to vote against the continuing resolution for various reasons.

The Navy's investigation of the two collisions found that in addition to bad judgment, the crews were not adequately prepared. The four include the commanding officer, two lieutenants and one lieutenant junior grade, the Navy said.

The White House gave Congress a March 5 deadline to pass a "fix" for DACA, making it an easy bargaining chip for Democrats hoping to get some sort of codification in exchange for the government spending bill.
