White House to hold briefing on possible govt shutdown
Why the US government shut down and what it means

Trump invited Schumer to the White House as a stopgap bill to fund the federal government through February 16 appeared on the verge of collapse in the Senate, where Democratic votes are needed to pass it.
Republican Senator Mike Rounds, who had earlier said he could not back the bill in current form, on Friday said in a statement that while the measure was "not ideal", he would support it after being assured that other legislation to adequately fund the USA military would be raised soon.
In a nutshell, a partial shutdown would mean that hundreds of thousands of federal workers would be idled, some national parks could close, and certain other services, deemed non-essential, would stop. "It would be a real black mark for the administration if we were in a shutdown on the one-year anniversary of the inauguration".
Partisans traded dueling hashtags on Twitter: #SchumerShutdown vs. #TrumpShutdown. Tim Kaine, D-Va. "At some point it starts to look like the goal is delay, not to get a deal".
The President was scheduled to travel to Florida on Friday evening to spend the weekend at Mar-a-Lago.
"He now wants almost every Democrat in the House of Representatives to break their word and pass a separate funding bill of his own that does not address the illegal immigration issue they said they must have". Democrats and Republicans agree that financing for CHIP should be renewed, but they've clashed over how to pay for it.
While decrying Democrats, it was Trump, a self-styled master dealmaker, who seemed to throw the negotiations into a final crisis and riled Democratic opposition against him.
Democrats have demanded the bill include protections from deportation for 700,000 young undocumented immigrants. So, who should take the blame?
In forcing a showdown over immigration and risking a government shutdown Democrats have embraced a confrontational, rule-breaking strategy they once blasted as irresponsible when practiced by the other party.
The poll's findings could have an impact on whether or not the government will shut down Friday. "Let's fund the government for a full month, so we can actually get something done".
White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah offered an upbeat prediction earlier Thursday that the government would remain open, despite growing signs on Capitol Hill that GOP leaders did not have the votes for a short-term spending bill. "That same fixation has them threatening to filibuster funding for the government".
Trump added: "We are going to fund our military; we're going to have a military like we've never had before because we've just about, just about never needed our military more than now".
The Kentucky Republican says Senate Democrats will "own" the shutdown because they oppose a stopgap spending bill to keep the government open for a month.
Bill Hoagland, a senior vice president at the Bipartisan Policy Center and a former Republican Senate budget staff director, said government shutdowns and continuing resolutions have gone on for decades in Washington, but Friday's shutdown threat was different because it was the first time a shutdown has loomed while a single party has held both Congress and the presidency. Lindsey Graham, a Republican from SC threatened to vote against a short-term spending bill, as did Rand Paul of Kentucky.
So to get through, the bill would need a dozen Democrats, out of 49.
It costs more to shut down the government than to keep it running.
After the vote's passage, Ryan called out Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer ahead of the Senate vote.
"I think we should go home, we've done our job", said Representative Chris Collins, a Republican from NY.
Asked about Meadows' saying he's a no and others in the Freedom Caucus planning to oppose the bill, McCarthy tweaked his GOP colleagues, saying "they want a shutdown?"
Polling suggests Republicans and Trump will catch the lion's share of the blame. Now Democrats are needed if it is to pass in the Senate - but they want illegal immigration and weak borders.
Trump invited the Senate's top Democrat to try to reach a deal to avert a government shutdown. A shutdown would not affect the military or other essential services.
Polls taken after the shutdowns in 1995 and 2013 showed that the presidents won these political battles.
Democrats didn't go into a shutdown posture to come away empty-handed and want at least new negotiations on the leadership level before they even consider any off-ramp.
"Is it possible this could bite some Republicans?".
"So I really think the pressure is on the president", he added.
