USA budget deal to boost military, infrastructure spending

Chuck Schumer Bob Casey

Meadows is bothered by a potential Senate deal that would increase spending caps allowing the size of government to grow by 13% and add to the deficit.

"This spending bill is a debt junkie's dream".

"I ran for office because I was very critical of President Obama's trillion-dollar deficits", the Kentucky senator said. Ryan hasn't scheduled House consideration, infuriating Democrats, but he said Friday, "We will focus on bringing that debate to this floor and finding a solution".

The Washington Post slammed the bipartisan budget deal, saying the plan denies reality.

Still, it represented a bitter defeat for Democrats who followed a risky strategy to use the party's leverage on the budget to address immigration and ended up scalded by last month's three-day government shutdown. "If we have to shut it down because the Democrats don't want safety. let's shut it down".

The spending bill passed by the House Tuesday would also fund the community health centers for two years.

Congressional critics of the wall are offering only a fraction of the funding he is seeking and oppose his plan to end family-based immigration and birthright citizenship.

Trump's tweets came after Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona and Christopher A. Coons of Delaware.

President Donald Trump is making the case on Twitter for electing more Republicans to Congress after signing a $400 billion spending plan.

At a late afternoon meeting, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California made it plain that she wasn't pressuring fellow Democrats to kill the bill, which is packed with money for party priorities like infrastructure, combating opioid abuse and help for college students.

The deal would pump $300 billion more into military and domestic programs.

Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced the spending deal that they had discussed yesterday.

Justin Amash points out that it is the biggest spending increase since 2009.

"This is a bad, bad, bad, bad. deal", Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said.
