The stopgap funding and budget measure, approved by a 240-186 House vote, will go next to President Donald Trump. The bill was expected to pass, but vote counts remained unclear Friday morning. Paul took advantage of Senate rules to delay a vote on the budget bill until early Friday morning, after the midnight shutdown deadline.
But Paul refused to yield and allow an early vote, forcing a shutdown while highlighting his policy priorities about excessive government spending. The budget agreement will set spending for programs for the next two years - if they stick to it. Trump has vowed to end the so-called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, by March 5. "Now we have Republicans hand in hand with Democrats offering us trillion-dollar deficits".
"There's no secret plan here to try to push this in any direction, and the Senate's going to work its will", McConnell said. But it's not clear if there are enough votes in the House to do so, as liberals are unhappy about the bill not addressing immigration and conservatives oppose the increased spending.After the vote succeeded, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell kept his word to move to open an immigration debate next week. "To me, it looked like he was clueless", said Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill.
Republicans in Congress have always talked a good game about cutting government spending and being fiscally responsible, but they sure have a knack for never following through and only making things worse.

And while they were not at their best, Klopp was left to reflect on a Liverpool performance that improved throughout. Mary's after his £75m January move to Anfield. "I just did my thing". " Roberto Firmino was not bothered too much".
The bill was later passed in the House despite opposition from both Republican and Democratic members.
President Trump had already said he'd sign the bipartisan pact. House Speaker Paul Ryan said he supports the bill and says we are risking the military with not having the funding.
He said he hoped his stand would teach conservatives "to not accept just anything because it comes from a GOP Congress".
In the House, many Democrats remain dubious because the bill does not offer relief to Dreamers, undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, who were protected from deportation by Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which Trump rescinded previous year.
Rite Aid Corporation (RAD)
Rite Aid Corporation (RAD ) has demonstrated a 20-day simple moving average (SMA) of -5.95%, and a 50-day SMA of 2.08%. If we take a long term observation, shares have been trading at a distance of 17.44% from the 200-day moving average.
They got nowhere. Neither did No. 2 Senate GOP leader John Cornyn of Texas, who at 10 p.m. EST tried and failed to get Paul's consent for votes before 1 a.m. Cornyn said Paul's objections were "wasting everybody's time" and said the Kentuckian would "effectively shut down the federal government for no real reason". The most promising outcome may be a narrow bill extending DACA protections for a year or so and providing some border security money for Trump. This bill is a BIG VICTORY for our Military, but much waste in order to get Democrat votes.
There was far less drama in the Senate, where the measure sailed through by a 71-28 tally once Paul's protest ran its course. The budget deal approved by Congress matters a lot to the Pentagon, and for domestic programs for opioids, health centers and research funding.
The proposal contains USA $165,000 million in additional defense spending and U.S. $131,000 million in spending on internal issues such as health, infrastructure or against the opioid crisis, according to Reuters.
"I don't know why we're burning time here", he groused. There also is no offset reduction for almost $90 billion in new disaster aid for USA states and territories ravaged by hurricanes or wildfires past year.
