Senate Republicans Block Bill to Avoid Shutdown


What Happened:

  • On Monday, Senate Republicans blocked a bill that would avoid a government shutdown on Friday and raise the debt ceiling. The bill failed 48-50 votes.

  • The proposal would have funded the government into December and lifted the debt ceiling past next year's midterm elections.

  • Now Congressional leaders and Senate Democrats are scrambling to put together a short-term spending bill that will garner bi-partisan support and avoid the upcoming shutdown.

  • Several Democratic leaders feel confident that they can put together the new bill in time to avoid a shutdown on Friday.
