Senate votes to reopen government, passes budget deal

Congressional leaders scramble for votes on budget deal Congressional leaders scramble for votes on budget deal

The House voted 240-186 in favor of the bill around 5:30 a.m. ET, successfully ending the five-and-a-half hour shutdown.

President Donald Trump signed a spending bill Friday morning to keep the government operating after some brief uncertainty about when he would do so.

The government shut down at midnight on Thursday after Kentucky senator Rand Paul blocked plans for a quick senate vote, blaming his fellow Republicans for being "complicit" in the looming return of trillion-dollar budget deficits. And that was before Paul, a Republican, made public his dissatisfaction with the deal - which would raise government spending, avert a government shutdown and lift the debt ceiling.

Congress achieved an ambitious two-year budget agreement Friday, but in doing so, reignited ideological factions on deficit spending and immigration that are likely to flare as lawmakers turn to these issues next, ahead of a daunting midterm election season.

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 US but that Trump would end March 5.

"Now we have Republicans hand in hand with Democrats offering us trillion-dollar deficits", he said. No. 3 House GOP leader Steve Scalise of Louisiana says Republicans still disagree about "how to handle this number of people that Barack Obama encouraged to come in here illegally".

The Senate passed the measure 71-28. We love and need our Military and gave them everything - and more.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she would oppose the deal because it does not include protections for the Dreamers, young undocumented migrants brought to the U.S. as children.

"My commitment to working together on an immigration measure that we can make law is a honest commitment".

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., urged Congress to avoid a "second needless shutdown in a matter of weeks - entirely needless".

Federal funding for government services expired at midnight local time when the Senate missed a voting deadline. Some House Democrats, including Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, plan to vote no on the bill because it doesn't include a permanent solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration program. He wanted the Senate to vote on his amendment to stick to 2011 budget caps, but was denied, and called the package "a bipartisan looting of the treasury".

In the House, many Democrats remain dubious because the bill does not offer relief to Dreamers, undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, who were protected from deportation by Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which Trump rescinded previous year. John Thune, a member of the GOP leadership, said. The most promising outcome may be a narrow bill extending DACA protections for a year or so and providing some border security money for Trump.

"We will solve this DACA problem", Ryan said just before the vote.

About $160 billion would go to the Pentagon and about $128 billion to non-defense programs.

Still, some GOP activists anxious that the deal reinforces the notion that congressional Republicans are not delivering on their promises to slash spending and reduce the size of government. "I would argue that it's time to vote".

The Senate had already approved the bipartisan spending legislation that will extend funding to the government through March 23 and boost disaster aid funding by around $90 billion for Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico that were battered by hurricanes a year ago.
