WASHINGTON — The House passed legislation Tuesday that would fund the government through Dec. 3 and extend the debt limit until after the 2022 elections. House Republican leaders pressured their members to oppose the bill. Pelosi said the debt limit "is about paying bills already incurred." After all, they control the White House, the House of Representatives and the Senate," he said. Democrats, however, noted that there was bipartisan support for raising the debt limit during the Trump administration.

That would have the effect of letting Republicans avoid voting for a debt limit increase ahead of next year's congressional elections. After the House vote, McConnell and fellow Republican Senator Richard Shelby said they had introduced a bill to fund current government operations through Dec. 3, but without raising the debt limit. Democrats have resisted doing that so far, saying the vote to raise the debt limit should be a bipartisan one. The Treasury Department will some time in October exhaust its borrowing authority unless the debt limit is raised. Republicans said they would support a temporary spending bill to avert a shutdown if the debt limit extension were stripped out of the bill.

REUTERS/Wolfgang RattayBERLIN, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Legalising cannabis is about the only thing Germany's Free Democrats (FDP) could easily agree with the centre-left Social Democrats and Greens, the FDP leader has said, sounding cool on the possibility of forming a so-called "traffic light" coalition. Lindner, whose party believes in tax cuts and legalising cannabis, said he was unsure what the Social Democrat's chancellor candidate, Olaf Scholz, stood for. Scholz's SPD saw its lead over Merkel's conservatives narrow in a poll published on Tuesday, pointing to a tightening race just five days before the election.

Sometime in October, the Treasury Department will exhaust its borrowing authority unless the debt limit is raised. The bill would suspend the limit on government borrowing through December 2022. The current debt ceiling already has been breached, with debt at $28.78 trillion. Republicans said they would support a temporary spending bill to avert a shutdown if the debt limit extension were stripped out of the bill. Schumer said much of the latest debt is related to spending that Republicans supported during Donald Trump's presidency, including last December's emergency COVID-19 relief bill.

From 2001 through April, about 66,000 Afghan military and police members were killed in Afghanistan, alongside 2,448 U.S. service members. The abrupt U.S. exit from Afghanistan likely forced the Afghan military to fight under unfamiliar conditions, ultimately leading to collapse — and the humanitarian catastrophe we are now witnessing. Our military allies in both countries simply do not know how to fight effectively on more conventional battlefields without U.S. support. If we are willing to maintain huge troop numbers to support our allies in Europe and East Asia, then why not even a small footprint in the Middle East?

Some House Democrats objected to a provision in a stopgap spending bill to provide the additional funding so Israel can replenish its “Iron Dome” missile-defense system. The U.S. company Raytheon produces many Iron Dome components. That could set the stage for another dispute over military aid for Israel. The United States has already provided more than $1.6 billion for Israel to develop and build the Iron Dome system, according to a U.S. Congressional Research Service report last year. Israel said most of the 4,350 rockets fired from Gaza during the conflict were blown out of the sky by Iron Dome interceptors.

Bypassing Republicans would likely require altering or abandoning the Senate's filibuster rule, which requires 60 of the chamber's 100 members to agree on most legislation. "As Senator Manchin said earlier this year regarding congressional action on voting rights, inaction is not an option," Schumer said on the Senate floor. In recent years, the Senate has eliminated the filibuster rule on executive branch nominations, including presidential picks for the U.S. Supreme Court. In June, all 50 Senate Republicans blocked an ambitious voting rights bill. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday slammed the door on the new bill.

WASHINGTON — House Democrats announced Tuesday an additional $28.6 billion in disaster relief and $6.3 billion in Afghan refugee aid has been added to a stopgap spending bill that needs to passed quickly in the coming weeks to avoid a government shutdown. On Monday, Democratic leaders announced plans to attach a debt limit extension to the stopgap funding bill, setting up a showdown with Republican senators. The Treasury Department has said the debt limit will be breached sometime in October if it's not lifted, which could disrupt the U.S. economy. The House bill includes $28.6 billion to address recent disasters, including Hurricane Ida earlier this year and from last year Hurricanes Delta, Zeta and Laura, wildfires, severe droughts and winter storms, according to a release. The continuing resolution would also suspend the debt limit into December 2020, which Senate Republicans are expected to balk over.

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan may need more time to meet its budget target of achieving a primary balance surplus by fiscal 2025, Finance Minister Taro Aso said on Tuesday, while stopping short of abandoning the elusive target. Japan's Finance Minister Taro Aso attends a news conference as a reporter raises his hand for a question at the Finance Ministry in Tokyo December 24, 2015. REUTERS/Issei Kato/FilesSome contenders in the ruling Liberal Democratic Party’s (LDP) leadership race have been cautious about the primary balance goal given uncertainty over the impact of COVID-19 on the economy. “It’s true that we are facing a situation where more time may be needed to achieve the primary balance target,” Aso told reporters after a cabinet meeting. Japan has pushed back the primary balance target several times in the past due to rounds of heavy fiscal stimulus it has rolled out to weather economic downturns.

TORONTO — Canadians gave Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party a victory in Monday’s parliamentary elections, but his gamble to win a majority of seats failed. Trudeau didn’t win enough seats to avoid having to rely on help from other parties to pass legislation. A Conservative win would have represented a rebuke of Trudeau against a politician with a fraction of his name recognition. O’Toole advertised himself a year ago as a “true-blue Conservative.” He became Conservative Party leader with a pledge to “take back Canada,” but immediately started working to push the party toward the political center. Adrian Archambault, a 53-year-old Vancouver resident, voted Liberal and said he didn’t mind the election was held during a pandemic.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The fundraising arm of the Democratic Party boosted cash transfers to its Virginia state affiliate in August as the party seeks to hold on to the state’s governorship in a closely fought Nov. 2 election. REUTERS/Evelyn HocksteinA campaign finance disclosure filed on Monday showed the Democratic National Committee (DNC) gave nearly $700,000 last month to the Democratic Party of Virginia. That roughly equaled the sum the DNC had transferred to the state party in the prior six months. Former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, is facing Republican businessman Glenn Youngkin in the gubernatorial election. Current Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, a Democrat, cannot seek re-election because of a state rule barring governors from serving consecutive terms.

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau is projected to form a minority government in the current snap election. Trudeau's minority win means he will need to continue working with opposition parties to get enough support to pass laws. The projected minority win means he will need to continue working with the opposition on future national decisions. His Liberal Party was leading with 157 seats out of 338, per Elections Canada at around 12:40 a.m. Ottawa time. Back then, the Liberal party took 184 seats and won a majority government, but subsequently lost their majority in the 2019 election with 157 seats.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell bashed Democrats' $3.5 trillion social spending bill. He called it "an effort to exploit this terrible but temporary pandemic as a Trojan Horse for permanent socialism." Insider's Kimberly Leonard did an in-depth breakdown of what is likely in the social spending bill. Democrats are attempting to pass this bill with slim margins in both the House and the Senate. The Senate Minority Leader has also stated that the GOP will vote against raising the debt limit.

JOHN MACDOUGALL | AFP | Getty ImagesWith just a handful of days until Germans vote in the federal election on Sunday, the latest poll shows the gap narrowing between the top two contenders. While Germany's Social Democratic Party (SPD) remains in front, a new poll by Insa for the German newspaper Bild has found the gap is narrowing. It indicates that the election is too close to call, although German voters have tended to favor stability in past elections meaning that the lead for the SPD could be scuppered when it comes to election day. For example, a "Green-Red-Red" alliance of the Greens with the SPD and far-left Die Linke party, or perhaps a "traffic light" coalition of the SPD, Greens and liberal Free Democratic Party (FDP).

Legal experts see a lack of evidence — and other problems — with a Trump-era special prosecutor's latest case. But while the indictment marked the first overt sign of activity in months from Durham, several legal experts weren't impressed. In interviews, legal experts described Durham's case against Sussmann as unusually — even remarkably — thin. Prosecutors in Durham's office allege that Sussmann was, in fact, representing a technology-industry executive and the Clinton campaign. "Man, the Michael Sussmann indictment seems thin.

Progressive Democrats want the bill to pass, even if it isn’t as large as they would like. They believe, correctly, that a win for Biden is a win for them. Moderate Democrats, however, seem to think that their success depends on their distance from the president and his progressive allies. Moderate and centrist Democrats seem to value a bipartisan process more than they do any particular policy outcome or ideological goal. What is true of both explanations is that they show the extent to which moderate Democrats have made a fetish of bipartisan displays and anti-partisan feeling.

He has called for Democrats to raise the debt ceiling on their own through a special budget process. Republicans supported raising the debt ceiling three times during the Trump administration. Yes, you've seen this movie before: President Joe Biden and McConnell played major parts in it too. Spurred on by the tea-party movement, Republicans sought to use raising the debt ceiling as a political cudgel against the Obama White House in 2011. Anxiety about congressional action over the debt ceiling didn't help matters either.

Supporters of the German Social Democrats (SPD) party, attend at an election campaign rally on August 27, 2021 in Berlin, Germany. What form the next coalition takes will undoubtedly have a big impact on Germany's economy which is Europe's largest and, arguably, its most important. A new coalition will have to be formed after the vote and German economists say certain alliances could have "massive consequences" on the country's economy. Germany's respected Ifo Institute and newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung surveyed 153 economists at German universities, asking them how different coalition formations could affect Germany's economic growth, unemployment, public debt, and income inequality. "Less than one week ahead of the 26 September federal election, the Social Democrats continue to lead in the polls.
