Senate Democrats who have long-fought Republican attempts to shut down the government over budget disputes are now threatening to do exactly that.
Democrats said they will block any attempts to include President Trump’s proposed border wall – or other far-right agenda items – in the $1 trillion spending package expected to be announced this week. And, they said, they are not opposed to shutting down the government if Republicans insist on including it.
The warning letter, written by Senate Minority Leader
Chuck Schumer and other top Senate Democrats, was addressed to Majority
Leader Mitch McConnell. It warned against funding the U.S.-Mexico
border wall and other “poison pills” that could be hidden in the budget
plan—such as defunding Planned Parenthood, rolling back environmental
regulations and allocating additional funding to the Pentagon.
