The move by Democrats is a big threat as Republican leaders know they will likely need Democratic votes to pass the short-term resolution. If Congress fails to pass the stop gap measure, the government will shut down Friday at midnight. Democrats in the House are united on their threat. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosis (D-Calif.) criticized Republican leaders for mixing apples and oranges by trying to push the health care bill and continuing resolution through the chamber back-to-back. I assume they have the votes to pass their extension, Pelosi said, warning that they shouldnt rely on her to corral Democrats to support the short-term spending bill. The stopgap continuing resolution would keep the government open for one week as Democrats and Republicans wrap up negotiations on a larger spending bill.

In particular he fails to appreciate that one of the principal characteristics of a settler-colonial society is the intra-class alliance that is formed between the settler bourgeoisie and the settler working class. That is what makes Israel such a stable and reliable state for US imperialism today. There are, of course, times when the settler bourgeoisie and the settler working class come to blows. This was true of the seamen’s strike in Israel in 1951 and the continued militancy of the Ashdod port workers from the 1960s until today. Indeed the Israeli-Jewish working class has often been a very militant one, even though at the same time it has rejected any alliance with the Israeli Arab working class. The major organisation of the Israeli-Jewish working class, Histadrut, was founded on the rejection of any form of unity between the Jewish-Arab working class and it put this into practice with its destruction of the joint Jewish-Arab railworkers union, which had been formed in 1919.

"It's critical that we're guided by a strong sense of resolve, both privately and publicly, both diplomatically and militarily," Harris said in Washington. "All options are on the table. We want to bring Kim Jong-Un to his senses, not to his knees." During a White House luncheon with UN Security Council ambassadors Monday, Trump "was very clear that he will be the president who will deal with" North Korea and that military action remains an option if China fails to rein in Pyongyang, a senior diplomat said. National security adviser H.R. McMaster told the 15 ambassadors that "there would be a military solution even if they don't want to do it," the diplomat said. The message was "ideally we do this peacefully and politically, which means through China. But if that doesn't work, there is another plan, which is through the United States," said the diplomat, who asked not to be named.

As a result, more conservative Republicans are saying they will now back the bill, but it still fails to address one of the biggest concerns raised by moderate Republicans, including the other four members of the New Jersey delegation, which is the rollback of federal funding for Medicaid expansion. MacArthur said he wasnt thinking “about one caucus or another.” “I proposed an amendment as an individual that I thought was a bridge between this difficult balance of giving states more flexibility so they can bring down cost and increase the number of insureds while also providing critical protections for the most vulnerable people among us,” he said. House Speaker Paul Ryan pulled the AHCA last month after it failed to garner enough support.
