Mitch McConnell has called for a vote to end the government shutdown at 1 a.m. on Monday, per the Washington Post. His plan would keep the government open through February 8, and is not likely to include concessions Democrats are seeking on immigration.

Little tangible progress was made on Saturday, as both sides exchanged blame and the White House insisted the shutdown would be short and painless, compared to the 2013 shutdown under Barack Obama.

The Trump angle

President Trump intended to be at a Mar a Lago bash tonight to celebrate the one year anniversary of his inauguration as president. He has steered clear of the back-and-forth on Capitol Hill, but did send a series of tweets blaming the shutdown on Democrats:

Per Politico, he has been "expressing annoyance to aides" that he had to miss the Mar a Lago party. The White House released a photograph of him in the Oval Office, noting that he was working during the shutdown.

Schumer's position

He's blaming Trump, and claiming they were close to reaching a deal until the president moved the goal posts.

Republican leadership
  • Paul Ryan: “We do some crazy things in Washington, but this is utter madness. Senate Democrats shut down this government, and now Senate Democrats need to open this government back up.”
  • Mitch McConnell: “Here we are. Day 1 of the Senate Democrats’ government shutdown. We did everything we could to stop them.”
Inside the administration
  • OMB Director Mick Mulvaney said aspects of government, like the National Parks, would continue to function as normal, despite shutting down in 2013 under Obama: “The Obama administration weaponized the shutdown in 2013. The only conclusion I can draw is they did so for political purposes. So it will look different this time around.”
  • Legislative Director Marc Short said Republicans won't negotiate on immigration until the government re-opens.
The moderates
  • Per the NY Times: "A bipartisan group of about 18 lawmakers, calling themselves the Common Sense Coalition, met Saturday afternoon in the office of Senator Susan Collins... in an effort to find a way forward. Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat of West Virginia, said the group hoped to present a proposal to Senate leaders either later Saturday or Sunday.
  • Lindsey Graham: "A government shutdown never ends well for Republicans, and it seldom ends well for the party in power... we'll get the lion’s share of the blame."
The end game

Per the Times: "The likeliest route for lawmakers to reopen the government is to agree on a stopgap spending measure that stretches longer than the few days that Senate Democrats want, but shorter than the four weeks that the House approved on Thursday."

Grocery delivery company Instacart has raised $100 million in new funding, on top of the $225 million it announced last month, the company tells Axios. This brings its valuation to $13.8 billion.

Why it matters: This funding comes at what could be an inflection point for Instacart, as customers it acquired during coronavirus lockdowns decide whether they want to continue with the service or resume in-person grocery shopping.

Markets swell as the economy shrinks

The economy is sputtering, but the markets are thriving — a highly unusual event that shows how the coronavirus has thrown all bets off.

Why it matters: The disconnect adds to the wealth gap. The richest 10% of households — who own 84% of stocks — are getting richer, while millions of out-of-work Americans cross their fingers that pandemic unemployment benefits will be extended.
