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.

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.
