Coons on budget deal: 'We got what we wanted'

The House easily passed a bill funding the federal government through the end of the fiscal year on Wednesday

US President Donald Trump came to office promising that he would produce so much winning that Americans would be sick of it.

Democrats say House Republicans up for re-election next year will face a backlash from voters over the bill.

Republicans did secure $6 billion in new defense money in the underlying spending bill but those increases were matched by an equal hike in domestic spending.

Democrats argued they have always been willing to approve extra defense money from the war fund, pointing to a 2015 budget agreement that included almost $58 billion in defense funds and $15 billion for nondefense spending. Sen. The Department of Homeland Security got $1.522 billion in additional spending. The total DHS number by the time we're finished will be north of $42 billion - the largest funding levels for border security in the last 10 years is what we'll have at the end of this process. "So we have more money now for the border than we've gotten in 10 years".

"Today we're here announcing that with this addition that we brought to the president, and sold him on in over an hour meeting in here with him, that we're both yesses on the bill", Long told reporters at the White House. But Trump and the administration have put on a full-court press to push back on the idea that they did not get what they wanted. "We appropriate and authorize", Flake said. Ted Cruz of Texas, who said in a statement that he was voting no because the bill is "perpetuating Democrats' big government programs". Democrats said Mr Trump would shoulder the blame for any shutdown now.

"What didn't the Democrats get?"

Timothy Naftali, a presidential historian at New York University, said Trump's threat of a shutdown was "totally, totally, totally" unprecedented.

"What the Democrats are telling you about that is false".

The resulting deal, reached late Sunday night, includes a $15 billion boost in funding for the military. Why are the Democrats saying that? "They forgot. In their notes, they forgot to tell you that". It is not meant to leave people with pre-existing conditions unprotected, and it takes some care to avoid doing that.

"It's not quite a done deed yet, but it addresses many of my concerns", Upton said of the new proposal. The point of that provision is to give people an incentive to buy coverage when they're healthy and remain continuously insured without an individual mandate.

Tyson Fury has delivered the ultimate insult to Anthony Joshua
So far, three firm favorites have come up - Klitschko, World Boxing Council (WBC) champion Deontay Wilder and Kubrat Pulev . As part of his Instagram story, Joshua also showed off his wide selection of caps as well as him working in the gym.

"They don't hide the good things, they only hide the bad things", he said.

It also came at the start of a week in which the House is considering a possible vote on a health care overhaul that would repeal and replace Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act.

Clearly enraged by the Democrats celebrating what they see as a victory, Trump likely urged Mulvaney to spin the situation in his favor.

"They're walking around trying to make it look like they pulled one over fast on the President", he said.

"I think that Democrats cleaned our clock", Sen.

"This bill is far from flawless, but it's better than how we are spending our money today, better than how we were spending our money a year ago", Republican Senator Roy Blunt said on the Senate floor.

The spending bill requires 60 votes to pass the Senate, meaning Republicans needed Democratic support for its passage.

According to Senate rules, 60 lawmakers need to agree before most bills can move to a final vote.

"We have to have at least eight Democrats support this in the Senate, which is why we've been working with Democrats from the very beginning".

He has made little legislative progress in any of these areas, and he is on the verge of being dealt another stinging defeat as House Republicans splinter on a health care bill for the second time in recent weeks.
