Schumer will oppose any 'out of the mainstream' Supreme Court pick

Schumer: Trump's Inaugural Crowd Booing Me Doesn't Speak Too Kindly of Them Donald Trump inauguration: Booing speaks poorly of those in crowd, says Democrat Chuck Schumer

Several Democrats, meanwhile, blocked Trump's nominee for Central Intelligence Agency director from swift confirmation despite overwhelming support, pushing for a more thorough debate. But even if the bill fails - as some experts expect - it may still prove important for reestablishing party values.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Sunday harshly criticized President Donald Trump's supporters who booed his comments about inclusiveness moments before Trump was inaugurated. The investment would be spread over a 10-year period and create more than 15 million jobs, he said. Then-President Barack Obama championed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, which contained a substantial infrastructure component, to speed economic recovery following the Great Recession. "Infrastructure investment is at the top of the list".

The Senate Democrat has threatened to keep the seat open if Trump refuses to name a "mainstream" nominee. He campaigned on a promise of bigger and better infrastructure. In his inaugural address, he reiterated that commitment.

"And the size of the package will be determined by the fiscal space we create in our spring budget, which means we don't know the answer to that question yet", Ryan said. Joe Manchin, a conservative Democrat from West Virginia - a state Trump won by 40 percentage points - has shown a willingness to vote for some of Trump's controversial Cabinet appointments. Could infrastructure become a bipartisan issue, bridging the divides in the new Congress? Chuck Grassley, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Sen.

Tottenham salvages draw at Manchester City after Lloris blunders
They were at the top of the table in September and now they are not even sure whether they can end the season in the top four. Of course, City still went on to win the majority of those fixtures, but it didn't make for particularly easy viewing.

Trump is attempting to ease some of Republicans' concerns by pushing their favored strategy to put private companies in charge of transportation projects instead of the federal government.

Infrastructure was raised at a meeting Monday between Trump and lawmakers from both parties. After being drafted in to harangue the press with a series of falsehoods over the inauguration's crowd size, Trump's press secretary Sean Spicer doubled down on the president's fraudulent claims at the White House press briefing on Tuesday, telling reporters the president "does believe that".

Tillerson's nomination now heads to the full Senate, but it did not come without pushback from the very committee it was confirmed by. "Are they all going to be paid for?"

Republicans had hoped to push through Pompeo and others Friday, but were able to confirm only two: James N. Mattis for defense secretary and John F. Kelly to lead Homeland Security. As I've noted before, it would be a mistake for Democrats to withhold cooperation unconditionally. "Finally, we propose ensuring additional funding is available to help upgrade our nation's aging 9-1-1 system and other critical infrastructure technology". Democrats, he said, will be most effective if they single out what really matters for them, like preventing Republicans from repealing the Affordable Care Act, and ignore the noise, like Trump's weird obsession with how many people attend his events.
