Friday ends the deadline for finding a solution to finance US federal agencies, and negotiations between Congress and the White House are feverish, with the aim of avoiding a new blackout in the federal government. This can be achieved if the parties involved reach compromise on the spending bill of $ 1.3 trillion.
According to sources from the US government and the Republicans in Congress, the new spending bill is difficult to include forecasts for financing the insurance market that supports Obamacare’s implementation. A White House official, as Politico says and republishes the AMP, described this issue as “one of the burdens” to reach an agreement, despite the effort made by President Trab to be included in the bill.
Donald Trub has asked the Republican leaders over the weekend to include a provision that will protect young illegal immigrants known as “Dreamers” or Dreamers from the possibility of deportation for 2.5 years. This move from Trab was in exchange for a possible support by the Democrats for approving a $ 25 billion financial grant for the construction of the border with Mexico. Democrats, however, appeared to be negative in support of the above provision for funding the wall, and the Republicans are ready to withdraw it.
On the other hand, Democratic votes are needed to pass the bill on spending. Also, the proposal to fund a $ 900 million giant transport infrastructure between New York and New York (Gateway Project) is unlikely to materialize, given President Trab’s threat of veto. The Conservative Republicans’ proposals to stop Planned Parenthood, as well as the reduction in funding received by so-called “shelter towns” protecting illegal migrants, have also been withdrawn.
Negotiators in Congress reject proposals to fund programs that remain pending for a long time to avoid the third cessation of the federal government within a quarter. Negotiations take place under the pressure of time, as only four days remain, until the end of the active funding period, to meet the federal government’s operational needs.
The pressure of time in the House of Representatives is intense, as the bill must be passed by tomorrow in order to avoid a possible delay or vote in the Senate. On the basis of the current numerical correlation, it is enough for a single Republican senator to vote to put an end to the federal government. This was demonstrated last month when Republican Senator Radu Pol’s negative attitude from Kentucky was enough to cause the federal government to shut down for several hours.
