Image result for dirty harry reidSenate Democratic Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) says there “are lots of problems” with a Republican proposal to fund the government beyond the end of the month, dampening hopes a deal might be reached this week.

Reid told reporters Wednesday that Republican and Democratic leaders are at loggerheads over the stopgap funding measure, which includes tens of millions of dollars to fight the Zika virus.

Republicans don’t want any of the $80 million slated for Puerto Rico's Zika response to go to Planned Parenthood clinics.

“The CR is not done; it’s a work in progress,” Reid said, referring to the funding continuing resolution. “Zika funding is not done; it’s a work in progress.”

Asked whether the partisan dispute over granting Planned Parenthood access to federal funds remains a sticking point, Reid said, “Planned Parenthood is not gone.”

Senators had expected to vote Wednesday to begin floor debate on the stopgap, but now that’s unlikely. 

Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn (Texas) said the Water Resources Development Act, which was supposed to pass Wednesday, now may not received a final vote until Thursday. He said the vote to begin debating the stopgap will happen after the water bill moves off the floor.

burn it all down and rebuild upon the Constitution and enforce the law ...this horrible night mare must end

Your so right...A night mare!!!!

Agreed.

But Planned Parenthood needs all that money so they can abort all the babies that may have been exposed to the Zika virus!!!!!!!!!!

They have yet to trim the fat off and need lessons from citizens who are trying to live on "nothing", while their retirement is being sent to illegals and our Islamic enemies!

Barry Wind

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
