Multiple published reports say the Democratic-led Senate is expected to vote Wednesday on legislation that could avoid a partial government shutdown by funding the federal government after Thursday.
Republican senators have blocked a House-pass bill that would prevent a shutdown but also increase the limits of the federal orrow, providing a measure that would put pressure on Democrats to deal with only one shutdown.
Top House Democrats are advising that just such a thing is going on, with majority leader Stanley Hoyer saying Tuesday that leaders in his chamber were “talking to the Senate about that.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, has repeatedly argued that Democratic lawmakers should go it alone to lift the limit through a process known as budget reconciliation, as they work to pass a পরিকল্পনা 3.5 trillion spending plan without GOP. Voting Democrats have maintained that the increase should be through an ideal process, and Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California has been told it is providing a “Trump credit card.”
