Listen: Senate, Mcconnell And Chuck Schumer discussed on Overnight re-air of day's programming
"Well, it should work the same way for the department of homeland security. Regular order would dictate that the Senate consider the bipartisan DHS appropriations Bill passed out of committee agreed to by both parties here on the floor. In the meantime. Six other bipartisan appropriation bills also agreed to by both parties are being held hostage over this unnecessarily. To any objective. Observer? So if my friend leader McConnell is so concerned about regular order. He bring up the remaining appropriations bills as agreed to for a vote, and he would tell President Trump that the bipartisan conference Bill the bipartisan compromise or CR are the ways to go to avoid a shutdown. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer earlier today on the Senate floor the house today passed by unanimous consent, a two week extension of funding for portions of the government. Not yet funded known as a CR continuing resolution. The current deadline is midnight Friday. The new deadline would be two weeks. After that the Senate is expected to consider that extension later."
