Spending bill win claimed by both sides

House passes $1.1T government spending bill sends to Senate

As he struggles to produce wins, some signs of frustration are starting to appear.

The omnibus spending bill will now head to the president's desk.

Instead, GOP leaders agreed to Democrats demands that the new border-security money comes with strict limitations requiring the Trump administration to use funds only for technology investments and repairs to existing fencing and infrastructure.

President Donald Trump and his aides have sought to paint the deal to fund the government and avoid a shutdown as a win for his fledgling administration, even as he publicly bemoaned the deal and called for a shutdown to fix the "mess" in Congress.

Upton and Long were among four House members who met with Trump at the White House.

"That's just not constructive. Those are the kinds of things that should never happen, and.it's damaging to our credibility", Mr Corker said. "It's damaging to trust here within the (Capitol) building", he said.

Mr Trump marked his 100th day in office last Saturday arguing that he has made major progress in rolling back federal regulations and improving the climate for job creation.

But while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was willing to deploy the so-called "nuclear option" to change Senate rules and allow Trump's Supreme Court nominee to advance with a simple majority vote, he and other Republicans have indicated that they are not inclined to lower the voting threshold to overcome a filibuster for legislation.

Before the White House meeting, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., praised the proposal and said the GOP was getting "extremely close" to finally being able to pass the stalled legislation.

White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said Tuesday that Congress needs to return to the practice of passing one-year appropriations bills and sending them to the White House for approval, not continuing the recent practice of lurching from one stopgap spending bill to the next.

The conference call was marred by technical issues at times, with Mulvaney straining to be heard over orchestra music that mysteriously began playing.

"This forced parity that we lived under the Obama years really constrained our ability to rebuild our military for this century", Ryan told reporters Tuesday. "I'll try to answer it one more time, and clearly we're having a lot of background noise here".

"It is a win for Democrats and a loss for conservatives", said tea party Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va. "We will get it done".

"From my point of view, we pretty well got our clock cleaned", said Sen. The first dictates funding for the federal government for the rest of 2017, while the second is Trump's "America First" wish list for the 2018 budget.

Mr Trump's embrace of such a disruptive event came days after he accused Senate Democrats of seeking that same outcome and obstructing majority Republicans during budget negotiations. Representative Trent Franks, pointing to the compromise spending bill moving to the House and Senate floors this week, said Democrats have a "choke hold" on bills despite being in the minority.

The Senate has passed the $1 trillion spending bill that would keep the government running until September, with a vote of 79-18.

"What we wanted is what we got: a good, balanced bipartisan negotiation where the Senate Republicans and Democrats work together to keep the government functioning". "And we're hopeful that we can see as we go through the 2018 process is more of a Republican-driven process, especially in the House, which would be a little bit more typical".
