House approves bill to avert shutdown

Strong fundraising shifts several House races in Dems favor Brendan Hoffman Getty Images

Republican Representative Bill Huizenga of MI said adding defence funding to the spending bill is the only way to get support from 218 Republicans to pass the House without Democratic support.

While Congress would still have to pass another spending measure before that deadline, the agreement announced Wednesday includes a longer-term pact to lift spending caps by roughly $400 billion for Pentagon and domestic programs over two years.

Democrats had been demanding "parity" as part of the deal, meaning that domestic spending gets the same increase the defense spending gets as part of any deal.

The deal would extend the Children's Health Insurance Program for 10 years, four more than the extension Congress just enacted. If you feel like we've been here before, that's because we have: the House has passed its fifth short-term spending bill since October. Yes.

Meanwhile, conservative House Republicans blasted the plan's calls for a almost $300 billion increase in federal spending over the next two years, raising concerns over federal deficits.

On Tuesday, the House voted on a continuing resolution funding the government through March 23.

Representative Luis Gutierrez, an Illinois Democrat, said a budget deal without protection for the young immigrants protected under the soon-to-end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme is unacceptable.

Civil Defense officials reported airstrikes in at least eight cities and towns in the East Ghouta suburbs over the past 48 hours. Eastern Ghouta is the last rebel-held enclave near Damascus, and parts of it have been held virtually for the entire war.

In addition, House Democrats, led by Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., are staging a protest of the budget deal on the House floor Wednesday because there has been no progress on an immigration deal.

"Here we are again, left with this ludicrous approach of funding the U.S. Government month to month", said Rep.

"We've reached a deal neither side loves, but both sides can be proud of", Schumer said.

Democratic Senate Leader Chuck Schumer, while acknowledging that both sides had to make "painful" concessions to strike the deal, called it a "win for the American people" and a "genuine breakthrough". The Senate has already promised that vote. Many other House Democrats are expected to follow suit.

"If we don't get rid of these loopholes where killers are allowed to come into our country and continue to kill ... if we don't change it, let's have a shutdown", Trump said at a White House roundtable on gang violence, according to Politico.

In addition to long-term military funding, the bill would allocate $131 billion to civilian programs, including $20 billion for infrastructure programs such as rural broadband, clean water, and roads.

Democratic Senator Jon Tester said he hoped House Democrats would back the measure.
