Senate Budget Deal Provides $6 Billion To Fight Opioid, Mental Health Crisis

Senate Budget Deal Provides $6 Billion To Fight Opioid, Mental Health Crisis Senate Budget Deal Provides $6 Billion To Fight Opioid, Mental Health Crisis

"If you vote no, you're voting against fixing the military", Rep. William "Mac" Thornberry, R-Tx., chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, said Wednesday. So, Democrats are being blamed, not merely for not making up the nine votes needed to get to 60 but for not overcoming the four-vote deficit their own Republican colleagues have caused. "Give us a vote", she said.

This comes after CHIP received a six-year funding extension last month following a three-day shutdown.

The Office of Management and Budget says it is now preparing for a lapse in appropriations. "I urge every Senator to review this legislation and join in voting to advance it", McConnell said.

Florida Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo, also a member of the Problem Solvers, told CNN he'd be "uncomfortable" supporting the budget deal without that commitment - and that willingness to work on the issue is not enough.

Trump appeared to lose patience over a Congress still deadlocked on immigration. He said it will start with essentially a blank slate and both Democrats and Republicans will be able to offer amendments for a vote.

Lawmakers are facing a midnight deadline. It's expected to pass in the Senate but may face stiffer opposition in the House.

Paul brushed off pleas from Senate leaders. "Without a commitment from Speaker Ryan comparable to the commitment from Leader McConnell, this package does not have my support".

BUT this time there's a key difference: Senate leaders from both sides of the aisle say they might have a budget agreement on their hands.

Like the House-passed short-term bill, the Senate measure would fund the government through March 23 while lawmakers fill in the details on longer-term spending. GOP leaders pitched the plan to rank-and-file Republicans Monday evening at a closed-door meeting.

In fact, Spanish publication Marca believe that Los Blancos are still his dream move despite the success he has had in Germany. I think this is good for football, that there are these new teams. "We want to become Bundesliga champions; we are not yet".


If the bill passes, borrowing is likely to dwarf the trillion-per-year amount estimated by the Treasury a few days ago.

Hours before the bill was passed, president Trump said he would love to see the government shutdown if congress does not reach an agreement on an immigration deal.

The deal also spends more on other administration priorities, including infrastructure and the opioid drug epidemic.

Since the sequester, there have been two bipartisan deals to raise the caps - the first in 2013, and the second in 2015. On Tuesday he held a roundtable discussion with lawmakers and law enforcement officials where he lamented that "killers" were coming across the border and living illegally in the United States.

Non-defense spending would rise by $63 billion this year and $68 billion next year.

It was drafted by Republican leadership to win the support of the conservative Freedom Caucus and defense hawks who are squeamish about supporting a fifth stop-gap funding bill.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer looks on as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi speaks at a news conference about the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, U.S., December 20, 2017.

The White House backs the Senate deal.

Senate leaders have agreed on a two-year budget plan, but it's facing tough resistance in the House.
