Deals could affect aid to Ukraine but could also spell the end of McCarthy’s speakership.
The embattled Speaker finds Republicans turning against him in a fight that could cost him his leadership post.
He needs to concentrate on keeping the nation’s government running but he appears too preoccupied with a stupid agtempt to impeach Biden.
With another threatened government shutdown approaching, can the partisan divides of Congress come up with a solution during the recess in August?
The bi-partisan deal was approved overwhelmingly by the House and Senate.
In rollercoaster mishmash of partisanship that had started and stopped, a Monday morning meeting at the White House may be a last salvage attempt.
“It’s time for Republicans to accept that there is no bipartisan deal to be made solely, solely, on their partisan terms,” Biden said at a news conference. “Now it’s time for the other side to move from their extreme position.”
The optimism of Friday faded overnight as partisanship again takes over the debate on debt limits and possible default.
Even though the two sides remain far apart, President Joe Biden expresses optimism that a deal is till possible before a government shutdown begins.
“I don’t see how we get there at this point. There’s no process set up, there’s no dialogue, there’s no discussion,” says Rep Patrick McHenry, R-SC. “I’m worried.” A little late for that.
