As Hill leaders try to pin shutdown on Trump or Schumer, bipartisan Senate group aims to reach compromise


Congressional Democrats and Republicans on Sunday again publically blamed each other’s party for the government running out of money and closing — respectively calling the situation the “Trump Shutdown” or the “Schumer Shutdown.” And, they urged the other side to end the political stalemate, as a bipartisan group of roughly 18 senators huddled to craft a compromise spending plan to present to their respective leadership teams in the hopes of reopening the government.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said it was time again for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to meet and discuss the latest terms. “I feel like now would be a good time for them to talk.”
