    US HOUSE OF REPS OKAYS TWO WEEK BUDGET EXTENSION 12-7-2017

    I guess the powers that be decided shutting down the US government would be a bad idea.

    Update (5 pm ET): Despite a laundry list of demands from Democrats and Republicans who appeared ready to cut off government funds, a majority of the House has voted to approve a two-week extension of government spending, a major legislative achievement that will allow Republicans to focus on their top priority: Passing comprehensive tax reform.

    The measure to the Senate, which must act on it by Friday. Measures included in the bill would also direct more money to states that are running out of federal funds under the Children’s Health Insurance Program

    In an announcement that brings the federal government to the verge of a weekend shutdown, Nancy Pelosi said Democrats won’t support a Republican bill for a two-week funding extension because almost none of their demands have been met.

    Speaker Paul Ryan, appearing at the same podium just minutes after Pelosi left it, said he’s optimistic the Republicans can win the GOP support to pass their CR on Thursday, the Hill reported. “I feel good where we are,” Ryan said. “It’s kind of basic governing.”

    According to Bloomberg, the bill is a “waste of time” that doesn’t include funding for combating the opioid crisis, among other priorities like enshrining DACA provisions into law, something Pelosi has said must happen before the end of the year.
