Trump Has Changed His Mind And Doesn't Want A Government Shutdown

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday lambasted President Donald Trump's demands in the latest government-shutdown fight, arguing they don't logically make sense.

MA congressman Seth Moulton says the decision by Rep. Nancy Pelosi to agree to limit her tenure as House speaker to four years will help pave the way for a new class of Democratic leaders.

"I'm sure the White House will resist and so the question is where do we go from there", she said.

The House is taking an extended five-day weekend, returning Wednesday night.

"I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck", Trump said in an exchange with Schumer.

Pelosi seldom mentions the Medicare-for-all proposal embraced by the most liberal wing of her caucus, and she focuses heavily on institutional reforms to Congress and new ethics laws.

Not everyone on the Democratic side is pleased with the turn of events, and Republicans made clear they are more than eager to accommodate Pelosi's rise, employing the kinds of attacks they have for years used against her.

If the two sides do not make a deal by December 21, about one-quarter of the government will be affected, including the departments of Homeland Security, Transportation, Agriculture, State and Justice, as well as national parks.

She said the comet will be below and to the left of the Pleiades, known to astronomers as "the seven sisters". One negative, however, is that we'll have a moon in that part of the sky - that'll make it tougher to see.

As the leading candidate to be the next speaker of the House, Ms. Pelosi said reducing healthcare costs and fixing the country's infrastructure are things the president said he wanted to do during the campaign and is "common ground" with Democrats' priorities. "He wants to protect the American people", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told reporters today. Pelosi lamented again that they were having the debate in public after having come in to the meeting in good faith, and Trump rightly noted, "It's not bad, Nancy". But this time, he said, his support came after considerable thought.

"Illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple", Schumer said. The House votes on its new speaker on January 3. "It's called transparency." So it was Nancy's "good-faith" expectation that Trump would just sit back and take their insults and not discuss the issue that could lead to the dreaded shutdown? He told them he would take a look.

The mood on Capitol Hill has quickly shifted as newly elected members arrive to set up offices on Capitol Hill and dozens of Republicans head for the exits. The House adjourned for six days soon after his remarks.

"I am confident we will have the will and the tools to finally expose Trump's financial history to sunlight", he said.

Based on this report, though, it appears that Republicans may not even be able to get border wall funding through the House of Representatives.

"I'm not for term limits", the No. 2 Democrat, Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md., told reporters.

If House Republicans can muster the votes, it's possible the Senate would then strip out the $5 billion for the wall and send a continuing resolution back to the House with the pared-down $1.6 billion for border security.

"Republicans are driving our nation to the brink of another disastrous government shutdown - at a time of great economic uncertainty and right in the middle of the holiday season", Roybal-Allard said in the Democrats' weekly address. Democrats won enough seats in November's midterm elections to wrest control of the House from the GOP.
