Trump urges Americans to vote Republican to cut deficit

But House Democrats say they still have not gotten satisfactory assurances from Speaker Paul Ryan.

Sen. Rand Paul held up the vote and for a brief period the Senate adjourned in the 11 p.m. hour until 12:01 a.m. Friday, February 9.

That issue will likely be the next major showdown in Congress.

The budget deal, negotiated by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), adds $300 billion in spending for defense and domestic programs and $89 billion in hurricane disaster aid.

He also remarked on how Republicans struggled to wrangle their party for votes, requiring them to compromise with Democrats.

"Part of it depends on the Democrats".

"The result of this bill today is a bipartisan looting of the treasury". "It's going to need bipartisan support". They share our nation with us. "Because the majority of Republicans believe that funding the government is a pretty important thing to do", Tillis said.

Paul finally had to cede the floor under the rules of Senate procedure, and a vote came after midnight, 71-28.

Members of the hard-right House Freedom Caucus said they could not vote for the bill because of its debt and spending increases.

"I ran for office because I was very critical of President Obamas trillion-dollar deficits", Paul said.

"If Minority Leader Pelosi was that serious about it, she would've handled this more directly when she was speaker of the House", Scalise told reporters on Capitol Hill Thursday. Others would work without getting paid at first.

Cornyn pointed out, "It takes unanimous consent to get an amendment". "This is not what the American people sent us here to do", the 30 or so members of the group said on Wednesday. You can make a point all you want.

By Thursday evening, the White House was preparing for a lapse in appropriations. I would like nothing more than to vote.

"I want people to feel uncomfortable", Paul said on the Senate floor. "This is too important for the country not to have a debate about it".

"It appears "General" @RandPaul is at it again".

"Just signed Bill. Our Military will now be stronger than ever before", he tweeted.

The bill is opposed by House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi because Republican House leaders will not guarantee her that they will allow a debate later on about taking steps to protect some 7,00,000 "Dreamer" immigrants from deportation. Paul stepped in on Thursday, adding a new roadblock.

He is pointing to upcoming talks on immigration, writing, "Fortunately, DACA not included in this Bill, negotiations to start now!"

The bill's future remains uncertain in the House, which will need to pass the legislation to reopen the government. "We paid for it", Reed said, referring to the temporary spending bill the house approved earlier this week.

Many Democrats are outraged that the spending deal would give away leverage on immigration issues, as it's not clear if a DACA solution would advance without firmer commitments from GOP leaders. "It is as simple as that". Defense spending and domestic spending get boosts from the plan with $165 billion and $131 billion, respectively.

Paul, a Kentucky Republican, said the overall budget bill that includes the stopgap measure would "loot the Treasury".

For roughly seven to eight hours, early Friday morning beginning at midnight, the federal government once again shut down for the second time in less than four weeks. "But what we can't do in that process of addressing those concerns is to discard I think the ultimate measure of national security, which is economic security".
