House GOP delays work on funding bill amid conservative demands

December 5, 2017

ryanpaul_102617cf_leadHouse Republicans are delaying consideration of a stopgap spending bill to keep the government funded past Friday amid growing divisions over their year-end strategy.

The House Rules Committee had planned to meet later Tuesday afternoon to prepare a short-term bill to fund the government through Dec. 22.

But the panel reversed course and announced it will instead meet on Wednesday afternoon. That would indicate a Thursday vote on the spending measure, bringing lawmakers closer to the Friday deadline.

House Republicans met for over an hour on Tuesday morning to discuss the path forward on the  government funding bill as the conservative House Freedom Caucus pushed to extend the deadline in the bill to Dec. 30.

    I wish someone would have the guts to start a filibuster just for the hell of it. For once, these lazy $ politicians can know what it means to work beyond the 2 or 3 hours.

    Seems the SOB’s in Congress should be required to work 50 forty hour weeks like the rest of us that do in order to pay for the bills Congress accumulates for us. Call it the “Congressional Work Hour Recovery Act”. Pay them by the hour that they actually productive.
