House Republicans Introduce Bill To Pay Employees Who Work During Shutdown

Marco Rubio: Rashida Tlaib's Dual Loyality Suggestion 'anti-Semitic'

Republican congressional leaders have largely backed Trump in his push for the wall.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) failed in his first significant legislative test of 2019, on January 8, coming up three votes short of the 60 needed to take up debate on Middle East policy proposals instead of Democratic bills to end the government shutdown. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., the minority leader.

"After the decision to pull out from #Syria many of my Democratic colleagues called for Congress to take action to address the negative impacts of that decision", he said on Twitter. Some 800,000 federal workers are about to miss their first paycheck, and money for programs including food stamps and federal housing assistance is at risk of drying up after funding for a quarter of the government ran out December 22. A significant # of Senate Democrats now support #BDS & Dem leaders want to avoid a floor vote that reveals that.

House Democrats last week passed legislation that would reopen the government but deny President Donald Trump any of the money he is demanding for a new wall along the U.S. -Mexico border. "Senate Republicans should instead bring to the floor the House-passed bills to reopen the government", the aide said.

"Due to the government shutdown, millions of low-income renters are at risk if the shutdown continues into February, when public housing officials say they don't know if rental assistance payments will be able to continue", he wrote.

Democrats voting for the cloture motion included Sens.

"Our leadership and all of us are having to spend hours dealing with phone calls from constituents and on issues around the shutdown", said Democratic Representative Pramila Jayapal, who sits on the House Judiciary Committee.

Stairs said that their next steps will be to gain a better understanding of the FRBs' environments and what causes them. From the new bursts detected by the Canadian astronomers, one repeated six times - apparently from the same location.

That point, which other Republicans have also employed in their arguments for the president's proposed wall, referred to the Secure Fence Act of 2006. "Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!"

The vote was 240-188, with eight Republicans joining with Democrats to pass the bill.

Trump was asked by reporters at the Capitol if any Republican lawmakers said they wanted him to pursue a different strategy and reopen the government.

"As I said on the night the partial government shutdown began, I do not think shutting down the government is ever the right answer", Gardner said on January 3.

This comes after McConnell said the upper chamber will not participate in "show votes" and will not vote on anything that wouldn't be signed by the president. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md. "This shutdown is squeezing the finances of so many Americans, including thousands of federal workers who live in Virginia".

It states it would 'increase protections for state and local governments in the United States that decide to divest from, prohibit investment in, and restrict contracting with companies knowingly engaged in commerce-related or investment-related BDS activity targeting Israel, ' according to Senate Republicans.

"As this really hits home as this first paycheck is going to be missed, we think Republicans are starting to respond and understand we need a comprehensive immigration reform plan, we need to have the discussion about national security, but not while holding our federal employees hostage", said Rep. Katherine Clark, D-Mass.
