Clock Ticks As Govt Set To Run Out Of Money Again
(Washington, DC) — The government runs out of money late Thursday and fears are growing about another shutdown. In a Capitol briefing today, GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan touted a six-week funding extension with a full year of funding for the military. Ryan accused Democrats of holding the military hostage over the unrelated issue of immigration. Democrats want longterm protections for Dreamers, young immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children. There was a three-day shutdown last month that was resolved when Senate Democrats ended a filibuster over immigration.
