Democratic-Led Filibuster Stops Vote on Funding

On Fox News' 'The Ingraham Angle,' Oklahoma Sen. Tom Lankford rips Dems for making new demands at 11th hour

 Republicans failed Friday night to break a Democratic-led filibuster blocking a vote to keep the federal government open.

That means President Donald Trump will face his first partial shutdown. Nonessential government workers will be furloughed, and government offices will close if the shutdown drags into next week.

Appearing on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” just before the failed procedural vote, Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) ripped his Democratic colleagues for making new 11th-hour demands. He said Trump and congressional leaders of both parties earlier in the week worked out a process by which they would negotiate a short-term bill.  :snip:
