UPDATE: Temporary government shutdown has happened.
The clock is ticking and another government shutdown looms in our immediate future. It will take a few minutes to sort out who will own this shutdown? Nancy Pelosi made history with her non-stop talking protest in the House yesterday. Is this her shutdown? Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell came up with this two-year budget scam. Is that why no one trusts it? Are there some Representatives in the House that are not playing political one-upmanship, but actually have our interests at heart?
As Written and Reported By Sean Moran for Breitbart:
The White House advised government agencies on Thursday evening to prepare for a government shutdown as conservatives in Congress revolted against a two-year budget deal crafted by Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell.
White House Office of Management and Budget spokesman John Czwartacki said, “Agencies are now being urged to review and prepare for lapse” in spending after midnight.
The federal government will shut down on Friday if Congress does not pass a spending bill before midnight on Thursday.
The budget deal between Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell will increase defense and domestic spending by roughly $400 billion over the next two years; the Defense Department’s budget will rise by $80 billion and domestic spending will increase by $63 billion in 2018 alone. The budget deal will also raise the debt ceiling for one year.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) staged a coup on Thursday against the two-year budget deal crafted by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). Paul will continue to block consideration of the budget deal until he gets a vote on an amendment to the budget that retains the spending caps created through the Budget Control Act of 2011………
