1 big thing: Shutdown on ice
Democrats have agreed to end the shutdown in exchange for a six-year extension of CHIP and a promise that they'll get a DACA vote within the next few weeks.
The bottom line, from Axios' Caitlin Owens: No one knows what the White House wants on immigration. So while Democrats may be taking the short-term sting from an angry base, the bigger fight comes in three weeks.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer today on the Senate floor:
- "Today, we drink seltzer."
- "Since our meeting in the Oval Office on Friday, the president and I have not spoken."
- "The great deal-making president sat on the sidelines."
- "Trump turned away from not one, but two, bipartisan compromises."
- "We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating..."
- "The Republican majority now has 17 days to prevent the Dreamers from being deported."
How it's playing:
- The headlines: "Democrats get rolled" (Politico); "Shutdown Shut Down" (HuffPost); "They're Back" (Drudge, linking to a Washington Times headline of "Dems give up on shutdown fight")
- "Stocks closed higher on Monday, erasing slight losses from earlier in the session, as U.S. lawmakers reached a deal that would resume government operations." (CNBC)
- Sarah Sanders to reporters: Trump is "pleased that Democrats in Congress have come to their senses... what the president did clearly worked."
- Kristen Gillibrand: "I want to see the government re-open as much as anyone, but this bill fails to fix the moral issue we must solve."
- Elizabeth Warren: "We don't need new promises. We need new laws."
- 18 senators voted against the deal. (Full list)
