Both MO Senators critical of Trump's "shutdown" demand, but to differing degrees

Government-wide spending bill headed for a House vote

The measure, however, withholds $2.5 billion of war-related funding until Mr. Trump submits his comprehensive plan to defeat ISIS to Congress, according to a summary prepared by Democrats.

But hours earlier, he decried rules in the Senate that make it more hard to pass legislation and appeared to call for a government shutdown when lawmakers negotiate a new budget deal in the fall. The first dictates funding for the federal government for the rest of 2017, while the second is Trump's "America First" wish list for the 2018 budget.

"It is a win for Democrats and a loss for conservatives", said tea party Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va.

But Republican leaders and the president himself also praised the stop-gap measure as a major accomplishment and a sign of his masterful negotiating with Democrats.

The House approved the legislation on Wednesday.

"It is good that the defense needs in this measure do not appear to be tied to any other issue", Thornberry said. "Our Republican team had its own victory - under the radar", Trump said.

Including Upton, The Associated Press has counted 21 GOP lawmakers opposing the Republican bill, one shy of the 22 needed to kill it, assuming all Democrats vote no.

"In the last 100 years, or the last 50 years, or the last 10 years, we (Republicans) have been in the minority more than we've been in the majority" said Blunt.

Brian Harman Wins Wells Fargo Championship With Clutch Long Range Putt
Harman came to the 18th tee tied for the lead and knowing that he needed a birdie on the par-5 to win the title. When Daly tapped in the winning putt, he pumped his fist.

White House officials and House leaders continued their hunt for the 216 votes they'd need to send one of Trump's and the GOP's top campaign priorities to the Senate, where its fate is uncertain.

What also didn't happen was the inclusion of some of the president's funding priorities he thundered about in the week leading up to last Friday's initial deadline for funding the government.

"We will pass this bill", House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., confidently predicted after a day of wrangling votes and personal arm-twisting by President Donald Trump. Of the 309 representatives that voted for the bill, 177 were Democrats and only 132 were Republicans. "The breaking of that parity requirement shows that we're now back to fixing defense, and we're not going to allow it to be held hostage for more bloated domestic spending".

Previous government shutdowns have cost the USA economy tens of billions of dollars and seen government services grind to a halt as thousands of non-essential personnel are temporarily laid off. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) using what he said is the "multiple choice" approach.

Shuster provided no specifics on what steps Congress would take to fix airline service.

United CEO Oscar Munoz apologized for the April 9 incident in which passenger David Dao was smashed in the face as he was removed from a flight. A successful outcome would be the culmination of seven years' worth of promises by Republicans to undo Obama's signature legislative achievement, but could also expose House Republicans to political blowback by endorsing a bill that boots millions off the insurance rolls. Democrats countered that the GOP effort risked a repeat of the 2008 meltdown that had the economy near collapse. Ted Cruz of Texas, who said in a statement that he was voting no because the bill is "perpetuating Democrats' big government programs".

Even so, Thursday's margin could be razor-thin, much like when "Obamacare" itself cleared the House in 2010 on a party-line vote of 219-212. It clamped down on banking practices and expanded consumer protections to restrain reckless conduct by financial firms and prevent a repeat of the 2008 meltdown.
