  • They predict Trump and Republicans will oppose

The Democrats who control the House of Representatives want to avoid a government strike and that is why they unveiled a temporary funding bill on Monday, which would ensure that federal agencies are fully operational until December.

The measure would prevent a partial government shutdown once the current annual budget expires at the end of this September.

The temporary funds bill comes as negotiations on financial aid for victims of the pandemic failed.

Also, amid the political drama following the death of the Supreme Court judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which has sparked a deep confirmation dispute in the Senate at election time.

The temporary funding measure is likely to meet opposition from Republicans and President Donald Trump, who were rejected a stipulation under which the government would retain authority to distribute bailout funds from the Department of Agriculture.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy pelosi, had informally noted that the proposal would be drafted in such a way as to allow Trump to continue providing the aid to farmers. Otherwise it would be postponed, but he changed his mind after complaints from other Democrats.

The legislation, called a continuity resolution in Washington’s parlance, would guarantee the operations of all federal agencies at their current funding levels through Dec. 11.

This would keep the government afloat after the presidential elections and a possible restructuring of the balance of power in Washington.

A few hours ago Nancy Pelosi, through her official Twitter account, commented on the change in the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC,for its acronym in English), when pointing to the number of cases and deaths from COVID-19 in the United States and condemned the Trump administration as failed, in the face of the crisis caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic.

Meanwhile President Trump on his account Twitter he retweeted a post from Missouri Senator Josh Hawley about the nomination to the US Supreme Court, accusing Democrats of encouraging rioters and looters, as well as seeking to “burn” the Constitution.

This is due to whether the result of the nomination of President Donald Trump and subsequent ratification by the Senate, on the vacant position in the Supreme Court is occupied by a conservative judge.

For months now, legislators in Congress have not been able to agree on a middle ground that allows the citizens of the United States to receive the long-awaited and longed-for second stimulus check, which will relieve them of the economic crisis due to the coronavirus pandemic.

With negotiations stalled once again, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to criticize Democratic leaders, accusing them of being “ruthless” and calling on Republicans to find a way to deliver “much higher numbers” to the American people.

A few days ago Trump tweeted: “Democrats are ‘ruthless.’ They don’t want to give STIMULUS PAYMENTS to people who desperately need the money, and whose fault it was NOT that the plague came from China. Go for much higher numbers Republicans, it all comes back to the US anyway (one way or another!) “.

In August, the president said in an interview after another hiatus in negotiations: “It’s the fault [de los demócratas]. They want $ 3.5 billion for something that will be fraudulent; basically, it’s election money. “

But asking Republicans to raise the figure to reach an agreement and be able to pay the second round of checks is unusual.

Especially since it seems like a show of support for Pelosi!

It is true that the president has asked on several occasions that the second check be paid to the population, but his administration has not been able to make that happen.

This is due to ongoing disagreements between the White House and Congress, as well as disagreements and bargaining failures between Democratic and Republican legislators.
