US Senate leaders reach $300 billion federal spending deal

US Senate leaders reach $300 billion federal spending deal

Meanwhile, President Trump said Tuesday afternoon at a White House roundtable on MS-13 gang violence, "I'd love to see a shutdown if we don't see this taken care of".

Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi has already said that she can not and will not support any deal that doesn't include legal protections for Dreamers - unless Speaker of the House Paul Ryan commits to a similar promise as the one McConell made in order to end the government shutdown in January.

"If we have to shut it down because the Democrats don't want safety ... then shut it down", Mr. Trump said.

The House on Tuesday voted to advance a bill that would keep the government funded through March 23 while also funding the Department of Defense for the rest of the fiscal year and extending some key Medicare programs.

That deal would eliminate strict budget caps, set in 2011 to reduce the federal deficit, and would allow Congress to spend about $200 billion more in the current fiscal year and in fiscal year 2019.

The deal also provides nearly $90bn for disaster relief efforts in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, which have been hard-hit by hurricanes in the past year.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told the stories of "Dreamers" on the House floor for hours on Wednesday.

The deal - negotiated by congressional leaders and released late Wednesday night - must still clear several procedural hurdles in the Senate.

Alongside his own announcement, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reiterated his pledge to hold a vote on legislation to protect almost 700,000 unauthorized immigrants ahead of DACA's March 5 expiration deadline in a process he said would be "fair to all sides".

"The budget deal doesn't have everything Democrats want".

On the other hand, the Senate might respond with a long-awaited spending pact to give whopping increases to the Pentagon and domestic programs. Instead, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., went with a deal that would reap tens of billions of dollars for other priorities - including combatting opioids - while hoping to solve the immigration impasse later.

In September, U.S. President Donald Trump ordered the phase out of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

"The Republican Party seems to be the party of big government in this day and age", said Brooks, though he added he doesn't think there's enough opposition to sink it. Ryan could potentially have to rely on half of the House Democrats voting for the plan in order for it to pass.

Funding the Children's Health Insurance Program for a decade: Congress reauthorized CHIP for six years as part of a stopgap government funding bill they passed last month.

The Trump administration is preparing for the second federal government shutdown in as many months. Lawmakers need to work out a spending measure before Thursday to avoid a government shutdown.

Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer warned that time was running short.

Does not address "dreamers": While many Democrats had pushed for protections for young undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, the deal does not address those "dreamers".
