Senate fails to reach deal, extending shutdown for third day


ㅤ”A flurry of activity on Capitol Hill had stoked hopes that a deal to end the shutdown might be reached before furloughs for hundreds of thousands of government workers kick in on Monday.
ㅤInstead, the Senate is now set to vote at noon on Monday to end debate on a measure that would fund the government through Feb. 8.
ㅤIt’s not clear there will be 60 votes to end debate, however, given opposition from Senate Democrats to the measure. Sixty votes are needed on the procedural vote.”
