Congress struggles to reach agreement on a spending bill as shutdown deadline approaches, reactions, and analyses from the “Special Report” All-Star panel.

Allows a partial government shutdown over the border-wall-financing would be argued to be a serious mistake, real clear politics associate editor A. B. Stoddard on Fox News “Special Report” All Star Panel Thursday.

The Congress is facing a Friday-at-midnight deadline for a spending package, but the parties are at odds after the house passed a measure with $ 5.7 billion for a border wall – something Senate Democrats that they have no support.

Stoddard, along with Washington Examiner chief political correspondent Byron York and the Washington Free Beacon editor in chief Matthew Continetti, weighed in on the budget battle on Fox News on Thursday evening.

When asked about the logistics of how the Congress could have a budget to pass by both chambers, that the limit to the funding, Stoddard offered a gloomy forecast — for Vice President, Pence said, are senators, they could go “home”, after the chamber on Wednesday approved an earlier stopgap, not the wall financing.

“A Congressman who is close to leadership, and know what’s going on, told me, … that you don’t know what’s going on, they were not sure they would have the votes, and they were in the hope that, even if it failed, the President would come to his senses. It was not a Senate plan, it was a ‘President Trump comes to his senses” plan,” Stoddard said. “I think that the nation’s fourth-graders know, this is no way to run a lemonade. This is totally irresponsible. The markets are rattling on the prospect of a shutdown, turn on Ann Coulter tweets.”

Coulter was among the conservatives, called for Trump to fight for the border-wall-financing.

Stoddard claims that prominent house Republicans such as Rep. meadows in addition, R-N. C., and Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, are also Trump called on to fight – guilty of “political malpractice.”

York noted that there were a lot of stories that was the trump card of “caving” in the midst of the outcry of prominent conservatives like Rush Limbaugh and Coulter. He also told the panel that house Republicans concerned “by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer were not to say” predict that Trump the votes in the house for a budget that the funding for the border wall.

House Republicans Thursday night proved they had the votes.

In the meantime, Continetti told the panel that the Democrats in Congress seemed to be “more encouraged,” in this budget battle since the heated exchange of words last week in the White house between Trump, Pelosi, and Schumer.

“The President Trump in a very precarious political position, because on the one hand, both the shutdown and the wall are unpopular with the public-but when it comes to his conservative base, if Trump fails to secure money for the wall, and during this, perhaps his last opportunity, that means that the base could rebel,” Continetti said.
