McConnell blocks House bills to reopen government

January 10, 2019

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Thursday blocked two House-passed funding bill that would reopen the federal government.

Sens. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) and Ben Cardin (D-Md.), surrounded by roughly two dozen of their Senate Democratic colleagues, tried to get consent to bring up a bill that would fund the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through Feb. 8, as well as a separate package that would fund the remaining appropriations bills through Sept. 30.

But McConnell objected, arguing they would be "show votes" and saying that he and Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) made an "explicit commitment" to avoid such votes.

"The last thing we need to do right now is trade pointless-absolutely pointless-show votes back and forth across the aisle," McConnell said.

Under Senate rules any senator can try to force a vote or pass a bill, but any one senator can block them.

The attempt by Democrats to pass the House bills comes as the partial government shutdown, which is impacting roughly a quarter of the federal government and is in its 20th day, is poised to break a record this weekend as the longest shutdown ever.

Talks between congressional leadership and President Trump appear to have derailed, with Trump walking out of a White House meeting on Wednesday.

McConnell has pledged that he will not bring up a bill that Trump doesn't support.

A lot of those politicians are filthy rich, dealing with key information that is worth a mint. So, yeah; they just pretend on certain positions while enriching themselves in the background.

It’s because McConnell’s constituency is heavy trump base.

At this point there’s no way you can put this shutdown on dems they’ve tried so many times to reopen the government, even partial reopening reserving border security for a later debate...

The fact that he’s blocking these proposals is damn near insane.

He knows if any of these proposals go through and Trump vetoes it, it’ll get override by votes because they have enough to do so.

Dems should keep sending proposals because the noose is gonna tighten soon. People’s lives are at stake and McConnel being a hoe and not even showing his face in public anymore during the shutdown.

When will the Senate check the president?

Not sure they have enough votes to override a veto. Dems are still scrambling to get enough Republican votes for a simple majority.

Damn near every time I watch a vid on YouTube the ad for impeach the president.com. I believe it’s up to congress to impeach his a*s right? I can’t believe this hasn’t happened yet.

5 billion for border security is all it takes. Dems should just pass that along. It’s not much money on the grand scheme of a budget. They’re holding onto “but you said..” . I think they are losing politically on this. They looked really weak on that response to trumps addresss this week. Even when they are on the correct side of the argument here, IMO.

I say they approve the funding, let it move forward and move on to the next battle. What’s happening now is not a win for blue team. To be clear I want dems to win, I just don’t think this is helping the case.

Right, but he's not even doing his job. He should be trying to re-open the government first and foremost. Second, he should really come out and say, "there's no actual crisis at the border that merits a wall being built." This crisis lie is ridiculous.

It’s crazy how they can keep a portion of their employer shut down and still get paid their six figures.

Yet people are out here about to lose their house, car, food on the table.

Such a fu*ked up system.
