United States budget deal to boost military, infrastructure spending

United States budget deal to boost military, infrastructure spending

The House narrowly passed the budget accord in the pre-dawn hours, ending a brief government shutdown and clearing a path for huge spending increases for both the Pentagon and domestic programs.

Paul's call clearly angered Republican leaders - Sen. Rand Paul, refused to allow a speedy vote. John Cornyn called it "grossly irresponsible" - and it exposed a contradiction that may come to haunt Republicans as they try to fire up conservatives in midterm elections. The bill would avert a government shutdown on Friday (as the spending bill in effect will expire tomorrow) and would fund the government for two years. One thing the bill doesn't do is touch immigration. That omission largely explains why a quarter of Senate Democrats and two-thirds of House Democrats voted no, and why immigration now because the next battle. This is a deal where we have a few democrats in the Senate dictate what this President and this Congress does.

When it became apparent that no budget bill could pass the Senate without Democratic support, nor for that matter clear the House, Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky entered into an unholy alliance with Democratic Leader Charles Schumer of NY that has Republican budget hawks screaming bloody murder.

Democrats want to extend the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which lets the immigrants temporarily live and work in the USA but that Trump would end March 5. "If we have to shut it down because the Democrats don't want safety. let's shut it down".
