-to-reopen-government-for-second-time


Senate Republicans blocked a House-passed package to reopen the federal government for a second time in as many weeks on Tuesday.

Democratic Sens. Chris Van Hollen (Md.) and Ben Cardin (Md.) asked for consent to take up a package of bills that would reopen the federal government.

One bill would fund the Department of Homeland Security through Feb. 8, while the other would fund the rest of the impacted departments and agencies through Sept. 30, the end of the fiscal year.

Under Senate rules, any senator can ask for consent to vote on or pass a bill, but any senator can object. McConnell blocked the two bills, saying the Senate wouldn't "participate in something that doesn't lead to an outcome."

McConnell for weeks has said he would not bring legislation to the floor on the shutdown unless there was a deal between President Trump and Democrats on border security, the issue that has triggered the shutdown. McConnell has described other votes as "show votes."

"The solution to this is a negotiation between the one person in the country who can sign something into law, the president of the United States, and our Democratic colleagues," McConnell said Tuesday.

Roughly a quarter of the government has been shut down since Dec. 22 over an entrenched fight on funding for Trump’s proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border wall.

The Senate passed a stopgap bill late last year by a voice vote, but it was rejected by the White House because it didn’t include extra border money.

Trump is demanding more than $5 billion for his signature wall. Democratic leadership has pointed to $1.3 billion as their cap and argued that it must go to fencing.

House Democrats passed their package to fully reopen the government earlier this month and have begun passing individual appropriations bills as they try to ratchet up pressure on Republicans to break with the president and support the legislation. But those bills are expected to go nowhere in the GOP-led Senate.

McConnell sought to drive a wedge between Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Democrats earlier Tuesday, characterizing the newly minted House leader as making border security “take a back seat to the political whims of the far left.”

“Here in the Senate my Democratic colleagues have an important choice to make. They could stand with common sense border experts, with federal workers and with their own past voting records, by the way, or they could continue to remain passive spectators complaining from the sidelines, as the Speaker refuses to negotiate with the White House,” McConnell said from the Senate floor.

Talks between Trump and congressional leadership are at a standstill after the president walked out of a White House meeting last week when Pelosi told him that Democrats would not consider border wall funding even if he fully reopened the government.

Democrats are trying to build pressure on McConnell to break with Trump and move legislation, something Senate GOP leadership say the careful Republican leader will not do.

Though several senators are publicly picking their own ideas, Sen. John Thune (S.D.), the No. 2 Senate Republican, said on Tuesday that hasn’t resulted in much pressure from within the caucus for McConnell to change his strategy.

“Our members are, you know, they’re going to make their positions known, nobody will be shy about that,” Thune told reporters. “But in the end, having a vote in the Senate I think has to be on something that not only can pass here but that can be signed into law by the president.”

But Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) urged McConnell to get involved in the talks on Tuesday, touting his previous role as a deal-maker who could resolve sticky political stalemates.

“There's only one person who can help America break through this gridlock: Leader McConnell. For the past month Leader McConnell has been content to hide behind the president, essentially giving him a veto over what comes to the floor of the Senate,” Schumer said.

He added that if McConnell brought up the House bills to fully reopen the government he believed they would receive a “significant,” “veto-proof” majority. McConnell has said the House bills cannot pass the Senate.

Cardin also appealed to McConnell after the GOP senator blocked his request on Tuesday, describing the Senate as “missing in action.”

“We’re a co-equal branch of government. Let us speak about opening government. There are members on both sides who understand that we can debate border security and we can reach agreements, but you can’t do that with a partial government shutdown,” Cardin said.

Several GOP senators have backed either taking up the House bills or passing a continuing resolution (CR) to reopen most or all of the government while Democratic leadership and Trump continue to fight over border security.

A group of Senate Republicans, led by Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.), were negotiating last week on a plan to reopen most of the government in exchange for the Senate taking up Trump's border request, including an additional $7 billion sent in a request earlier this month. To help win over Democrats, there were talks about a deal on “Dreamers,” immigrants who came to the country illegally as children.

But those talks derailed, senators said, because of intransigence by Trump and Pelosi. A bipartisan group, involving many of the same senators, also met on Monday night to discuss a similar framework but made little progress toward breaking the shutdown stalemate.

Trump on Monday wasn’t interested in the idea of temporarily reopening the government. But Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), who took part in both talks, said Tuesday that he hoped the president changed his mind.

“We ought to take the president’s request, immediately consider it … add to it whatever we need to do to get a result, send it to him, sign it and in the meantime open the government up,” Alexander told WREC, a Tennessee radio station.

Alexander acknowledged that the idea of reopening the government for roughly three weeks wouldn’t gain traction without Trump’s support, adding, “I’m hoping the president changes his mind. This is the way you get a result.”

Meanwhile, I've seen on social media that people are looking to place blame on Congress and insist that they NOT receive their pay while the Shutdown is on.
One problem, that pesky Constitution.

"Article I, Section 6 of the U.S. Constitution allows the lawmakers to still get paid their salaries, despite the federal government being shut down due to their inability to reach an agreement."


And, as I have said in the past, you can't pick and choose which of the Articles in the Constitution should be adhered to. The entire document is of great importance.

So, what to do, what to do!?

Do other developed countries have government shutdowns?

Government shutdowns are uniquely American. When the government shuts down in other developed countries like Australia, politicians such as McConnell are the ones who feel the brunt of a shutdown. For instance, the Australian parliament risks being dissolved if government isn’t funded, which, in theory, makes it less likely to happen.

“We cannot find another democracy that shuts itself down,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told reporters this week. Referencing parliament dissolving itself in Australia, Hoyer quipped that it “would not be a bad alternative” [for McConnell to dissolve.]

Other developed nations also have a lower threshold for passing budgets — a budget typically needs a simple majority rather than the higher percentage required in the US Senate. Simple 50% majorities help prevent this kind of gridlock.

Before 1976 the government never shut down. Since then it has shut down 21 times because that year the "modern" budgeting process for the federal government went into effect. Government agencies operated on a shoestring budget during shutdowns but didn’t actually cease to function until after 1980, when then-Attorney General Benjamin Civiletti issued legal opinions finding that in order for the federal government to not violate the 1884 Antideficiency Act, agencies truly had to shut down.

I'll connect the dots for you: 6ixStringJack, don’t think of yourself as not a Republican just because you once had a problem with Bush. Bush was a nincompoop; even Republicans had a problem with him. 6ix, you fit perfectly into the rightward shift of conservatives. You are a Republican, despite you believing that you are in a special category, a very unique individual. You are not.

6ix, look at yourself: just today you have bitched about SJW's and a razor ad that violated your delicate sensibilities. Then you get all puffed up about Trump being attacked, you doing exactly what he does whenever it gets mentioned that he acts strange around Putin: "I never worked for Russia and I am insulted that you ask that question". You and Trump and Republicans in general share the same dermatological condition: thin skin. And you bitch about how high your taxes are -- that is pure Republican. 6ix, you are just a run-of-the-mill Republican. JFK won't know what the hell to do with you other than tell you to vote for Nixon and Barry Goldwater. Those are your kind of people. Stop imagining that you are anything other than an ordinary Republican.

Since the start of the new Congress, the Democratic-led House has voted four times on measures that would re-open all or some of the federal government. The number of votes in the Republican-led Senate, at least so far, is zero – and that’s not because of filibusters, but rather, because Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell hasn’t brought any bills related to the shutdown to the floor.

6ixStringJack, do you know the word “shill”? A shill, also called a stooge, helps a person (Trump) or organization (the GOP) by attacking its enemies without disclosing that the shill has a close relationship with the person or organization.

6IxStringJack, you wrote this:

Here's the thing Jackie my boy. McConnell is trying to force the Donald to own up to the Shutdown after embarassing him last month by NOT signing the agreement Trump said he would sign.

Thanks, of course, should go to Coulter and Limbaugh, those two geniuses.

Pelosi is in favor of not holding Trump's State of Union address in Congress. In 1801, Thomas Jefferson discontinued the practice of delivering the address in person, regarding it as too monarchical (similar to the Speech from the Throne). Instead, the address was written and then sent to Congress to be read by a clerk until 1913 when Woodrow Wilson re-established the practice despite some initial controversy.

Pelosi expanded on her security concerns in remarks to reporters: “We would have the president of the United States, the vice president of the United States, the entire Congress of the United States, the House and Senate, the Supreme Court, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Cabinet of the United States, and the diplomatic corps all in the same room. This requires hundreds of people working on the logistics and security of it. Most of those people are either furloughed or victims of president’s shutdown.”

The GOP scoffed: "Why do we need security? Trump is loved."

Why Won’t Mitch McConnell Just End Trump’s Shutdown? He’s Up for Re-Election in 2020.
https://theintercept.com/2019/01/15/mitch-mcconnell-government-shutdow
n-reelection
/

McConnell’s major problem is that, in Kentucky, he is not popular, with just a 38 percent approval rating, well below Trump’s 55 percent approval in Kentucky. McConnell hopes Trump's 55% will increase his 38%, getting him reelected. But McConnell will have to woo Kentucky's Trump voters by doing exactly whatever Trump wants.

All McConnell would have to do to open the government would be to put the same bill that the Senate already passed back on the floor.

Yet McConnell has been adamant that he would not put anything up for a vote in the Senate that the president wouldn’t sign, making numerous speeches on the Senate floor on the subject. He has steered clear of negotiations to end the shutdown, now in its fourth week.

The blame is upon the voters of Kentucky. Trump is more popular with them than McConnell is, 55% vs 38%. If McConnell does not go along with whatever Trump wants, McConnell will lose his primary election to a challenger Republican who pledges his fealty to Trump. Until McConnell does what Paul Ryan did, declare he is not running again, McConnell will be Trump's hound instead of a man. Ryan was too proud to tolerate Trump's stupidity that Mitch has to.

No, he's a redneck from Indiana.



Finally. Somebody gets the area right.

I spent the first 20 years of my life within 15 miles of Chicago. The next 5 literally less than a mile from Chicago, then the next 6 just south of Milwaukee before moving to NWI.

There's more than corn in Indiana. There's more than rednecks too.



At least you've figured out that not everybody who disagrees with you is Russian. Next you have to work on the fact that not every white person who doesn't live in one of your dystopian metropolis cities is a redneck.


If you want to know about rednecks in Indiana, ask Wishy about her neighbors down south in Nilbog, IN.

You do as much justice to the word "evidens" here as reaverfan does to Nazi.

It's happening fast and furious now. Has been since the first Monday after the election. I heard reporting this morning about trump giving a biased political speech to some military yesterday. They sat on their hands when Trump was expecting applause.

The press is full of bad news and Trump is at the center of all of it. People are burning out on it and want change. I predict that very shortly 60% minimum are going to say enough.

The more criminals involved, and the more crimes committed, the longer it takes.

The bogus Benghazi investigation took 2 1/2 years, and no wrongdoing was found.

We've got guilty pleas and way more indictments pending. Most of the evidence is still sealed.

And congress has yet to subpoena Trump's taxes. That should be a treat.
