LGBT groups place blame on Trump for government shutdown

"The most basic duty of Congress is to fund the federal government, and I voted to keep the government running".

Later in the evening Republican senator Lindsey Graham suggested a shorter-term funding proposal of three weeks rather than four, but this was not supported by Democrats.

Aside from DACA, the Democrats were also seeking increases in domestic spending, a bump in disaster aid for hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico, and a bolstering the government's response to the opioid epidemic. Now efforts have intensified at a bipartisan solution.

But spending bills have always been notoriously hard to pass.

As a congressman in 2013, Mulvaney was among a faction on the hard right that bullied GOP leaders into a shutdown confrontation by insisting on lacing a must-pass spending bill with provisions created to cripple President Barack Obama's signature health care law.

The Speaker then addressed his remarks to federal workers impacted by the shutdown, spanning workers in the Capitol, medical researchers and members of the military.

One year later, the government has, in fact, shut down. It may be especially harmful to our veterans, our seniors, and children's health.

Despite bipartisan negotiations, Republican leaders refused to include those protections, and neither side was willing to back down. "The Congress must also immediately pass legislation to allow the thousands of people, known as DREAMers, who were brought to this country as children to remain legally".

"The courageous men and women who serve, and their families, are profoundly affected by living CR to CR - short-term government funding bills that offer no real reform, and simply kick the can down the road for another month". The White House, however, rejected that agreement on the basis it didn't provide enough funding for border security. The most recent continuing resolution, just like the previous CR, accomplishes none of those goals. That position is a striking role reversal for the conservative former congressman who was one of the architects of the 2013 government shutdown.

The stopgap measure won 50 votes in the Senate, including five Democrats.

It is the first government shutdown in modern history to occur when the same party has control of both Congress and the White House.

"Senate Democrats own the Schumer shutdown". The shutdown of our government is a manufactured crisis that is completely unnecessary and is totally unacceptable. About 860,000 federal workers would face furloughs once normal shutdown procedures are implemented. "This type of political gamesmanship is exactly why people have such distain for Congress".

Democratic and Republican leaders agreed to reopen negotiations on Saturday and said they were committed to getting a quick agreement.

As the blame-game intensified, a Washington Post-ABC poll found that 48 per cent of Americans blamed Mr Trump and the Republican party for the crisis, with only 28 per cent blaming Democrats. The voters in FL-18 were clear. They didn't reach out to us on the continuing resolution. "Republicans need to get back to work and deliver what Americans are demanding".

President Donald Trump followed the statement with in a series of tweets claiming Democrats wanted to give him "a nice present" to mark the one-year anniversary of his inauguration.
