Congress returns, aiming to avert government shutdown, pass ObamaCare overhaul

April 24, 2017

Congress returns to Washington this week to take on the now-familiar task of passing an 11th-hour spending bill to avert a government shutdown, with President Trump’s promised border wall emerging this time as the big sticking point between Democrats and Republicans.

Trump tweeted several times about the issue Sunday, with one tweet saying Democrats don’t want budget money paying for the wall “despite the fact it will stop drugs and very bad MS-13 gang members.”

The deadline to avert a shutdown is Saturday, Trump’s 100th day in office, which has increased pressure on the GOP-controlled Congress to also pass an ObamaCare repeal and replacement plan after failing to do so in March.

In exchange for funding Trump’s planned wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, congressional Democrats want any ObamaCare overhaul bill to continue to include subsides for health insurance companies that helped low-income people afford health policies.

    Ryan is such a worthless piece of crap. Getting rid of that lying closet liberal would be a good start at getting some change going. Ryan is a traitor to the conservatives as are so many in the repub party these days.

      I agree with you 100% about Ryan. He was mentored by the biggest Rino ever, John Boehner. Ryan should be removed as Speaker and from Congress altogether. Go back to working at Daddy’s business where you can’t hurt the rest of the citizenry with your liberal agenda.

    The Dems, want a so called shut down so they can blame the Rep. and mainly Trump!

      Not completely!

      Democrats know exactly what they are doing.

      ☭Traitors have an agenda that transcends patriotism, the rule of law and national security.

        Apparently they do, they’ve fought every single thing Trump has tried to do and they will continue too!

    A government shutdown, eh? Baloney. This claim is another fraud from our Federal Tyranny. They never shut down anything that matters, and the things they shut down for a day or two for show are a joke. Here’s a good idea: Shut down the Federal Tyranny for a year or two, send all the House and Senate crooks home without a salary, and keep the Oval Office open solely because the president is Commander in Chief. Maybe leave the House Senate home for 2-3 years while the Commander in Chief closes entire unconstitutional agencies—close down them all. Now that’s a government shutdown.

      You are correct about that. 85% of government spending is on automatic pilot. This is just more hollow propaganda from the Left trying to gin up the liberals to make a stink as per usual. Terminate the paychecks to Congress until they do their jobs the way the “we the people” desire, or resign.
