Fed Gov shutdown in 3 weeks ?

"Welcome to the club, Sen. Chuck Schumer. Three weeks ahead of the next government funding deadline, the senator from New York is raising the alarm, with good cause.

"I'm increasingly worried that President Trump will want to shut down the government again because of impeachment," Schumer told reporters Tuesday. "He always likes to create diversions. I hope and pray he won’t want to cause another government shutdown because it might be a diversion away from impeachment." Trump isn't paying much attention to the fact that he's supposed to be helping run a government at the moment, being somewhat preoccupied with "NO Quid Pro Quo." (There was quid pro quo.)
There will be a familiar fight among the House and the Senate and the White House, the kind that Trump loves. The border wall: It's his happy place, his refuge, and the one idea he's been able to hold in his head since 2015. Once again, he's not going to get it through appropriations, not with a Democratic House. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell knows that, but that doesn't mean he's not going to try to help Trump, for now anyway....."
I would say that the House of Representatives are the ones not paying attention to running the government at the present time. All they can think about is trying to overturn the 2016 presidential election with impeachment.
I dream of an America where a chicken can cross the road without having it's motives questioned.
Both Houses are working on a deal.  Different committees deal with different areas of government, some focus on crime (impeachment), others on finance, etc. etc.

Dear Leader is the one threatening to shut the government down.
