It was said late yesterday night (Tuesday 1-16-18) that theGOP’s plan to help a government shutdown from happening is not getting enoughsupport from the Republican Party, due to arguments like building a wall or havinga bill to keep federal agencies open to keep money for the military to continueadding too.
GOP- only in house votes are not enough, they need additionalsupport from the Republican Party and they plan to meet with Republicans to discussthe issue in hopes that they will come to agreeing terms. As of right now thereis not enough time to approve a new deal by this upcoming Friday 1-19-18, withprotecting any young immigrants that America has, so the GOP is focusing onkeeping the government open. With neither parties agreeing on all issues, theydo both hope that when Senate is up for auction that they don’t have to dealwith a shutting down election year. Republican leaders are trying to getCongress to allow a short-term spending bill before this upcoming Saturday1-20-18. If Republicans can’t get Congress to pass the bill then federalagencies will immediately shut their doors on the idea. House Republican leaderstried to convince the Conservatives to join them by promising to repeal someunpopular taxes to help in the prevention of a shutdown.
They even tried tothrow in better health care plans and delays of less liked taxes on somemedical devices. Then with Trump continuous trying to use billions of U.S. taxdollars to build a border wall, that in and of itself has added complicationsto the White House. Republicans are expected to discuss possible changes.
Democratsare not intending to vote and keep government open if they don’t have a plan toprotect young immigrants. These immigrants are called Dreamers. So even ifRepublican’s decide to comply they would still need a certain amount ofDemocratic votes needed to still pass the bill.
