New vote looms in USA as Republicans revive struggling healthcare bill
07 May, 2017, 17:00
The Senate has delivered to President Donald Trump the first significant legislation of his presidency, a bipartisan $1.1 trillion spending bill to keep the government running through September.
Democrats' gleeful declarations that they outsmarted Republicans in a battle over a spending bill that avoided a government shutdown drew the ire of the president. And we know that a large part of their base, especially their left-wing base, wanted a shutdown and certainly didn't want them to cut a deal with us.
He said that legislation needs 60 votes in the Senate because of the filibuster and suggested that it would be necessary to elect more Republicans or "change the rules".
Also attending the White House meeting were the current Energy and Commerce chairman, Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., and Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, who heads a health subcommittee.
Negotiators on the bill say it looks pretty much like the measure would have looked like if it had been ironed out past year under Obama - save for Trump's add-ons for the Pentagon and the border.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., praised the bill as well, saying it "acts on President Trump's commitment to rebuild our military for the 21st century and bolster our nation's border security to protect our homeland". He cited Republican gains, including a historic increase in border security - including more detention beds and facilities - along with more immigration agents. "I think they will go back and check their papers", Trump reiterated of Democrats. The leaders - Democrat, Republican, House and Senate - work well together.

"We got rid of all of the foolish things, like the wall, the Mexican wall, the effort to repeal Planned Parenthood, we got rid of all of that, " said Sen. The vote passed with just one vote to spare.
While members of the conservative Freedom Caucus in the House of Representatives say they will oppose the compromise, there appears to be bipartisan support for a plan that eschews Trump's draconian cuts for dozens of departments and his unworkable budget proposal.
The sweeping, 1,665-page bill also increases spending for NASA, medical research, and the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies.
"I think you're going to see conservatives have some real concerns with this legislation", Rep. Jim Jordan of OH said on CNN's "New Day", citing domestic spending obtained by Democrats and other issues.
Some of Trump's sensitivity might be a tacit acknowledgment that if there was a shutdown, Republicans would likely be blamed given they control Congress and the White House.
