Indiana's 8th District Congressman Larry Bucshon (R) joined us Friday live on the phone to discuss the issue.
Here's what you need to know about government shutdowns. But after being in government for 33 years, and watching from the outside since 2011, I have to say I agree with the president on this one.
The National Parks, which fall under the Department of the Interior, often serve as a symbol of the government's closure, as "Park Closed" signs are placed at entrances and gates are locked shut.
What Government Services Will Continue?Walden said in a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives Thursday, before the House voted to pass the bill. You have to have 60 votes in the Senate.
The ellipses were meant to lead to Trump, who earlier in the day tried to pin the blame on the Democratic donkey, tweeting that "we need more Republican victories in 2018" - a recognition that the Democrats can block major moves in the Senate because Republicans are nine votes short of the 60 necessary to advance legislation under Senate rules.
A group of senators from both parties managed to cobble together a bipartisan bill, but negotiations broke down after Trump and immigration hardliners in his administration started demanding more draconian measures, like billions of dollars in funding to build a wall along the southern border. During a short-term federal government shutdown, rail service would not be interrupted.
States would continue to receive payments for the Children's Health Insurance Program. IN is not one of those. The Republican-controlled House passed two spending bills with amendments aimed at crippling the law: one that would have repealed the medical device tax, and another that would have delayed the implementation of the ACA by a year. If it goes on for several weeks or longer, it will likely affect all of us, at least to some degree. The first deadlock occurred in November after Clinton vetoed spending legislation passed by the Republican-controlled Congress. Funding elapsed for five days and about 800,000 employees were furloughed. Democrats laid fault with Republicans, who control both chambers of Congress and the White House and have struggled with building internal consensus. What does that say about the state of the Republican Party? From there, Huffman unleashes about 770 words of venom directed at Trump and Congressional Republicans, saying he's "disgusted and dismayed". College students attending Cabrillo, UC Santa Cruz and other universities with federal grants, loans or work-study jobs would be affected. On the other hand, unlike military personnel, they'll find themselves with a lot of free time on their hands, so if you own a bar or a miniature golf course or something like that near a federal government office, you may find business is up. "We need more Republican victories in 2018!" That's who is holding it up.
This is part of the Democrats strategy to force President Trump and the Republicans to negotiate with them on illegal immigrants who are facing deportation.
Can I go to a national park? Most New Yorkers have no idea that there's even a National Archives office here. Do Social Security checks get issued and does the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention keep tracking the flu?
CHIP covers children whose families make too much money to qualify for Medicaid, but still struggle to afford health insurance. It depends on the administration.
National parks and museums could be in limbo, meaning Mount Rainier vacations may be derailed.
Other than that, the impact at UNL would mostly be rescheduled meetings and late pay for some projects, said Steve Goddard, interim vice chancellor for research.
Can I get a gun permit? "Maybe. But it gives you an order of magnitude of what's happening day to day". Then-President George H.W. Bush, after a compromise with the Democrats in the Congress, had increased tax rates despite promising not to during his 1989 campaign, leading to a revolt in the House.
Prince George's County executive Rushern Baker III, D, said he will take steps similar to what he did during the last shutdown, such as placing the Department of Housing on high alert to identify households that may not be able to pay their mortgages or rent. We're going to be here.
"I hope it doesn't happen", Nancy Crampton told PIX11 News.
