As indicated by CNBC, 4 Republican Senators joined the Democrats endeavors to close the legislature down on Friday night.
As we announced before, we were only one vote far from getting it go in the Senate, however we had a couple of GOP Senators wound us in the back.
The deceivers are as per the following: Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Jeff Flake of Arizona, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah.
Here’s the report from CNBC:
A House-passed stopgap charge that would stay away from an administration shutdown failed out in the Senate late Friday night, leaving Congress arranging hysterically as the midnight due date to support the legislature passed.
The measure bombed in a procedural vote by a 50 to 49 edge. Five Democrats — Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Doug Jones of Alabama and Claire McCaskill of Missouri — had supported it.
Four Republicans — Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Jeff Flake of Arizona, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah — contradicted it.
So did Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for procedural reasons.
As about all Democrats and a few Republicans contradicted the measure that neglected to work its way through Congress on Friday, officials saw government subsidizing slip, in any event briefly. The recommendation that flopped in the Senate would have financed the legislature through Feb. 16 and reauthorized the mainstream Children’s Health Insurance Program for a long time.
As the vote stayed open into early Saturday morning, a few bipartisan representatives seemed to give about a route forward. McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer at that point strolled off the Senate floor together, just to return and proceed with converses with different representatives. Various representatives gathered around Schumer as the clock hit midnight.
To be completely forthright, I’m perplexed by Rand Paul’s vote. I have no clue why in the damnation he would bolster an administration shutdown over unlawful migration. I can trust Lindsey Graham and Jeff Flake pulling poop like this, however Rand? C’mon man.
This shutdown is a DISGRACE, however it’s all on the Democrats. They needed an arrangement for unlawful workers and they just didn’t get it.
