Support for Mrs. Pelosi's bold confrontation of the president was even stronger on the other side of the Capitol, as House Democrats have rallied behind the new speaker in her showdown with Mr. Trump. Johnson told Mills that if the congressman from Arkansas didn't let the bottled-up Medicare bill come to a vote in the full House, Johnson would start shutting down military bases in Mills' home state.

Some were puzzled by Mr. Trump's claim that rank-and-file Democrats looking to make a shutdown deal are being held back by party leaders. Travel plans are compromised by shuttered federal parks and airport delays.
If he blinks first and ends the shutdown and Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe bombshell report lands the same day or next, nobody's going to be talking about the shutdown so might as well keep the shutdown story alive.
"It is an atrocity what is happening to ordinary workers", he said. The sick-out rate was 7.7 percent on Sunday.
Pelosi has been at the Capitol working with new members to pass legislation.
