House GOP Leader: Government Shutdown Would Be 'stupid'

He said McCaskill can speak on party issues because she knows firsthand what voters of opposing ideology want. "He's been advocating for $5 billion to everybody, not just Republicans".

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday lambasted President Donald Trump's demands in the latest government-shutdown fight, arguing they don't logically make sense.

Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Colo., was among 16 Democrats who had signed a letter demanding new leadership but who ultimately helped negotiate the deal with Pelosi. We will support and vote for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House in the 116th Congress.

Democrats have alleged Trump is violating the U.S. Constitution's emoluments clause, which bars presidents from receiving gifts of value from foreign governments. Among the elections Rice cited was a Georgia seat that Republican Karen Handel won after linking her opponent, Democrat Jon Ossoff, to Pelosi.

Twenty-four lawmakers missed the vote on the farm bill Wednesday, including 17 Republicans.

On Wednesday night, with Pelosi agreeing to a four-year term limit, Foster and several others said they'd back the 78-year-old California lawmaker for the chamber's top spot. Bill Shuster (R-Pa.) and Tom Rooney (R-Fla.).

An NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll released earlier this month found 57 percent of the country wants Trump to "compromise on the border wall to prevent gridlock", while 36 percent say he should not compromise on the wall "even if it means a government shutdown". The appropriators' package could include the $5 billion for the wall, plus emergency disaster aid for wildfires in the West and other natural disasters. "He said, 'That's news, go tell the press".

But more than anything, he said he's grateful that his "decency, sincerity, and kind soul will stay with us forever". The late president's eulogists - son included - noted Bush's tendency to tangle his words and show his goofy side.

He said that the Democrats have always been supportive of "walls and fences" on the US-Mexico border but now when he wants to build a wall they refuse. Each party would have gotten something that matters a lot to it - the legal status for the Democrats, the wall funding for the Republicans - while doing no damage to any of its important policy interests.

Funding expires for a number of key government agencies on December 21 at midnight. Trump's approval rating has remained remarkably steady, in the high 30s and low 40s - much less than Clinton, but much higher than Nixon.

Sen. Chuck Schumer replied with a tweet of his own: "Mr. President: If you say Mexico is going to pay for the wall (which I don't believe), then I guess we don't have to!"

One of the most mind-numbingly absurd spin games that President Donald Trump and his allies like to play on immigration is to pretend that Democrats are the only ones standing in the way of realizing his Great Border Wall fantasy.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer doubled down on his commitment not to provide additional funding for the border wall while he spoke on the Senate floor on Thursday. He noted that the GOP controls the House, Senate and the White House; Democrats will take power in the House in January.

Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, in a meeting last week at the White House, suggested keeping funding at its current level, $1.3 billion, for improved fencing. The House and Senate used to pass annual appropriation bills, and the president signed them into law.
