Senator Mitch McConnell Tries To Reason With The Democrats and Calls For A Full Bipartisan Compromise. Did it work?
Since they’ve closed negotiations for the day without a resolve, at least as of right now, the answer is- NO. The ‘Government Shutdown’ enters the first weekday tomorrow morning the actual effects of the shutdown have yet to impact us but that will change tomorrow when ‘non-essential’ government employees go on unpaid furlough until the budget is extended or a compromise is met. President Trump has already stated if they reach an agreement he will sign off on it but the someone just isn’t playing ball, out there. Here is what McConnell is proposing.
As Reported by Susan Cornwell, Ginger Gibson With Reuters– A U.S. government shutdown will enter its third day on Monday as Senate negotiators failed to reach a deal late on Sunday on Democrats’ demand for legislation protecting “Dreamers,” young people brought to the country illegally as children.
The Senate set a vote for 12 p.m. (1700 GMT) on Monday on advancing a measure that would provide temporary government funding through Feb. 8 and allow thousands of federal employees to return to work.
