Bipartisan DACA deal falls through, shutdown looming

The plan indicates House Speaker Paul Ryan and his team are trying to push through a plan to finance government operations through February 19 without having to count on support from Democrats in the House.

Republicans were also discussing delaying three Affordable Healthcare Act taxes: two-year delays of a medical device and a "Cadillac" tax for high-end insurance plans and a one-year delay in 2019 of another health insurance tax. Cory Booker (D., N.J.), Kamala Harris (D., Calif.), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.)-are taking hardline stances on a spending deal, insisting on voting down any government-funding bill that does not protect so-called "Dreamers", immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children, from deportation.

"It is extremely hard to convince our caucus members to vote for another short-term funding mechanism", House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows told CNN Monday afternoon.

Both Republicans and Democrats want to lift those caps - GOP leaders want a big boost for defense; Democrats say any defense increase should be paired with an equal hike for domestic programs.

The negotiating climate has become increasingly poisonous after a sudden halt last week in talks toward a deal to shield the Dreamers - immigrants brought into the country illegally as children - from deportation.

Meadows said that the while his group has not come out with an official position yet, the House Freedom Caucus will meet Tuesday night following a conference-wide GOP meeting.

Trump rescinded the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which provides legal protections to Dreamers, in September and gave Congress six months to find a legal solution.


Republicans are not the only ones who could face political consequences over a potential government shutdown if lawmakers do not strike a deal on spending and immigration by the end of the week. They have been pushing GOP leaders not to advance another CR, and some could threaten to withhold their support for the bill if congressional leaders cannot reach a deal on the spending caps. While there is still plenty of time for the dynamic to shift, more than one source involved with internal discussions pointed to the remarks as having a tangible effect on how senators and their top staffers were moving as this week began - and it was toward the direction of not giving Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell the votes to keep the government open.

Key Democrats and Republicans stop commenting about negotiations.

Terminating work permits for the approximately 33,000 Dreamers in Florida would cost the state's economy $1.5 billion a year, according to FWD.us, an advocacy group founded by technology industry leaders. That's an awfully tough issue for Democrats, in voting against a spending bill, to cede to Republicans. A temperature check of those Republicans will tell us a lot.

But the politicking over who is to blame for a government shutdown is already well underway. "Anyone who says they want to avoid a shutdown shold be asking for a vote on that compromise legislation".

Some Democrats said they won't vote on a spending bill unless some sort of resolution for the program is reached.

In a tweet Tuesday, Trump claimed that "Democrats want to shut down the Government over Amnesty for all and Border Security".

But, both sides acknowledge the politics are a bit trickier this time around.
