With the longest stop of the US ending on Friday, the legislators turn their attention to another dramatic political goal: to make sure that such episodes will never happen.
In a report with reporters and columnists on Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) became the highest official yet to formally embrace legislation that would effectively prevent the closure of the government. And she told her that she could even advance a proposal in the near future.
"[Former Rep. Dale Kildee (D-MI)] I had a ticket that I hope we could bring forward, "explained Pelosi." And what invoice said that if you do not want any invoice invoice, I'm not talking about the omnibus or minibus "-group revenue tickets- "Any legal appropriations that do not match it in due time, you will automatically go to CR" – a resolution to keep the current spending levels – "until you do. "
Is Pelosi the only figure to accept such a concept, the possibilities that in fact materialization in law would be slim. And they're fine. But after the recently completed unemployment over border financing, most republicans joined the choir in search of legislation, which prevented stops from everywhere.
Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), the Senate's president, presented a statement on Friday, which included this clear demand for the government bill that the Congress now has to reach in three weeks, when the current agreement ends: "The final package It would also have to end government stops once for everyone. "
And in the Congress halls following the announcement of a resolution to the current operation, long-term Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN), who retires from an office, said "government stops should be in budget negotiations, which chemical weapons are actually war. … completely outside limits. "
So many veterans legislators feel so strongly about banning government stops to speak, in part, to the increasing damage caused by these stops. Since 1976, the government has undergone 22 empty funds, ten of which resulted in federal workers. But three longest of these forests occurred since 1995: including a 16-day road in 2013 and the last one ended 35 days.
But as with many in federal politics today, while legislators generally have the idea that government stops should never be allowed to occur, they disagree with the means of arriving. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) in a statement released on Friday, said the Congress must pursue a "new bipartisan rule" guaranteeing no stopping to take place again. Others, unlike, want formal laws. But there is no agreement on the legislation they want.
Senator Rob Portman (R-OH), along with many Senate Republicans, introduced the Final Government Changing Act, under which current levels of expenditure would only last if no agreement had been reached on new government legislation. But under its bill, this level of expenditure would reduce one percent if the disagreement lasted 120 days and another percentage every 90 days later. Unsatisfied with the speed in the automatic sliced slices of this bill, the Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced one of his own, causing the expenses to reduce even more quickly.
The Pelosi concept supported, in contrast, would not include these automatic reductions. It would be spending levels as it is.
And then it is the "Action of" Stop Stupidity (Ignited Transferring Unnecessary Pain and Inflicting Damages in the Next Years) "The constantly inspired bill was introduced this week by Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA). It takes the alert- things-level approach and tons offer. Instead of a failure by legislators to reach an agreement, the current financial levels of the government will continue automatically – except those money to pay members of the legislative branch and the office of the president.
"We must never do this again," Warner offered on Friday. "And if we can not agree to promote an item, people who have to pay the price, there are not the 800,000 federal workers or the contractors, but the only organizations that have to be completely eliminated, are the congress and office of the president.
