With Shutdown Just Hours Away, Senate Leaders Are Reportedly Close To A Deal

February 7, 2018

The federal government is less than two days away from a shutdown. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are reportedly close to a budget deal, but not everyone is excited about it. The deal would extend budget limits for defense and domestic spending, but does not include a solution to DACA, which many Democrats have said will need to be a part of any long-term budget deal.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is one of the Democrats who have said a budget deal must be tied to a solution on immigration. Despite her stance, Jack Holmes, Associate Editor at Esquire, says he doesn't believe the government will shut down at all.
