So the RightWingNuts get what they wanted?
An annoucment about doing a impeachment hearing!
The US Senate has advanced spending legislation !
Those same WingNuts will NOW try to hold up ANY budget agreement, even if it shuts down the Government……
The Donald Trump choas moves into the Congress……
The Senate will take its first procedural votes Tuesday on a nearly $280 billion government funding package that has broad bipartisan support. Leaders hope the legislation will display a united front amid the spending standoff with House Republicans, as the two chambers snipe over a deal that will keep the government’s lights on past a Sept. 30 deadline.
Congressional leaders agree they’ll need a stopgap bill to accomplish that, but House conservatives are already agitating to make passage of such a funding patch impossible without major concessions that will never reach President Joe Biden’s desk. Still, Republican senators want to see McCarthy pass his version first — and even Democrats acknowledge they’re waiting to see the speaker’s next move.
“We’ve got to let the House give it a college try. If they fail, we’ll have to do something,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C) said Monday night.
Case in point: The House Freedom Caucus plans to hammer home its funding demands with conservative groups outside the Capitol on Tuesday afternoon. McCarthy’s right flank has called for billions of dollars in additional spending cuts and major policy changes, such as GOP reforms at the southern border in exchange for funding the government, or measures that would slash budgets at Biden’s Justice Department and the FBI.
House GOP leaders hope to placate their fractious conference and pass a funding bill for the Pentagon this week. But even if they could manage to pass that legislation, it stands no chance in the Senate — and the White House already threatened on Monday to veto it….
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer offered some unsolicited advice to his counterpart across the Capitol: “Don’t let 30 people way out on the extreme dictate what the House does.”
