House votes to avert federal shutdown, Senate chances dim

"So we will see sometime today whether or not they have the votes for that (in the Senate)".

On CBS' Face the Nation, John Dickerson asked Ryan, "Are Democrats complicit?"

"This eye-popping number is a testament to Speaker Ryan, House Republicans, and the agenda that they led the fight on in 2017", said Kevin Seifert, executive director of Team Ryan, in a statement.

As a shutdown loomed, the White House said Friday that President Donald Trump would not leave for a planned weekend in Florida unless a funding bill passes.

Thus, the strategy was created to produce either a win with virtually no GOP concessions, or a government shutdown that could pretty cleanly be blamed on Democrats.

Yet if Ryan caves to Meadows's demand for a vote on what is essentially Trump's immigration policy, he may be sabotaging any chance of a bipartisan immigration deal, which has to happen before the spending crisis is finally resolved (i.e., when the final stopgap bill expires next month).

Intel urges halt to installing its Meltdown/Spectre patches
Instead, these partners should "focus efforts on testing early versions of the updated solution so we can accelerate its release". The company is advising people to stay far away from its patch after users complained that it caused their machines to reboot.

"It is a shakedown strategy that Senate Democrats have been talked into by their base". The bill would have funded the federal government until February 16. Republicans were all but daring Democrats to scuttle the bill and force a shutdown because of immigration, which they said would hurt Democratic senators seeking re-election in 10 states that Trump carried in 2016.

Republicans have said the immigration debate-the deadline to address the DACA recipients isn't until March-should be separate, and Ryan said congressional Republicans are working with Democrats on that debate. Ryan accused Democrats of holding the government "hostage", and slammed them for refusing to budge, saying it would negatively impact both the military and children dependent on the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

"If there's a government shutdown - and let's hope there's not - it'd be the Democrats shutting it down", said Sen. This shutdown is the first time that federal operations have ceased when one party controls the Senate, House, and the White House.

Congress must act by midnight Friday or the government will begin immediately locking its doors.

Democrats want a deal to protect around 700,000 immigrants from deportation who arrived in the U.S.as children and have stayed here illegally.

A government shutdown went into effect in the early hours of Saturday morning after a federal spending bill failed to pass. "In another month, we'll be right back here, at this moment, with the same web of problems at our feet, in no better position to solve them".
