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.

The House passed a measure to keep the government funded for another two months and prevent a debt default. But it does little to resolve the standoff between Democrats and Republicans as the US veers into a potential government shutdown. But the measure is poised to tank in the Senate, as Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has warned many times. The measure stands no chance in the Senate as Republicans are lining up behind McConnell's pledge to torpedo the measure. "Democrats have the authority and the votes to raise the debt limit themselves," Brian Riedl, a budget expert at the right-leaning Manhattan Institute, said in an interview.

Marketmind: Some relief - but how long will it last?

Relief is at hand for markets on Wednesday, after China's Evergrande said it would make a domestic bond coupon payment. And with the U.S. Federal Reserve set to conclude its two-day meeting later on Wednesday, perhaps this week's market excitement is not over yet. For the Fed, weaker-than-anticipated jobs numbers have already dampened expectations it will announce an imminent start to tapering bond-buying stimulus. It might however clear the way for tapering later this year and show in updated projections whether higher-than-expected inflation or a resurgent coronavirus pandemic is weighing more on the economic outlook. - European earnings: Playtech, IG Group- U.S. earnings: NikeReuters Graphics Reuters GraphicsReporting by Dhara Ranasinghe; editing by Sujata RaoOur Standards: The Thomson Reuters Trust Principles.

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.

WASHINGTON — A long-delayed bill to provide financial support to U.S. government personnel believed to be suffering from Havana Syndrome is headed to President Joe Biden’s desk after the House passed it Tuesday. NBC News reported that diplomats affected by Havana Syndrome voiced frustration over continuing challenges in getting medical care and benefits in a tense hourlong conversation with Secretary of State Antony Blinken this month. The first incidents of the syndrome “medically confirmed” by the U.S. government were in Havana in 2016 and 2017. Many U.S. workers thought to be suffering from Havana Syndrome reported hearing a loud sound and feeling pressure in their heads. For years, those who have come forward reporting potential Havana Syndrome have complained about immense bureaucratic hurdles to getting proper medical care.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Divisions between progressives and moderates are bedeviling U.S. Democrats as they struggle to advance President Joe Biden’s agenda, with the fate of the $3.5 trillion social spending legislation they hope to pass hanging in the balance. “If the Senate can’t do 3.5, we’ve got to see what they can do,” Hoyer said. “I will not vote for a reconciliation package lower than 3.5. trillion,” Representative Jamaal Bowman declared outside the Capitol. Moderates like Manchin, who represents heavily Republican West Virginia, say they will not vote for $3.5 trillion in social spending. Another House progressive, Representative Rashida Tlaib, said she was “absolutely” worried about the social spending package being cut back too much.

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.

REUTERS/Joshua RobertsWASHINGTON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - President Joe Biden's administration will continue to argue that the U.S. debt limit is not a partisan issue and push Republicans and Democrats to vote to raise it, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Tuesday. "We will continue to make the case that it should be" raised, Psaki told reporters on board Air Force One. "It is not a partisan issue to want to protect the full faith and credit of the United States, and... we will continue to press for bipartisan support for moving forward." Republicans have refused to vote to increase the debt limit, citing Democrats' spending plans on infrastructure and social programs.

In Tennessee, the patients first in line for the monoclonal antibody Covid-19 treatment are likely to be the ones who landed in the emergency room because they did not get vaccinated. Extraordinary demand coupled with the federal government’s need to cap shipments of these scarce drugs has forced Tennessee health officials to recommend limiting the treatment to unvaccinated patients with the worst cases of Covid-19. Tennessee, which is following the guidance of the National Institutes of Health, appears to be the first state to recommend limiting monoclonal antibody treatment to Covid-19 patients who are unvaccinated or vaccinated but immunocompromised. And all but Florida have below average Covid-19 vaccination rates. DeSantis, in particular, has touted expensive monoclonal antibody treatments (about $2,100 a dose) but has refused to mandate the far-cheaper vaccines (between $10 and $20 a dose) or proven safety measures like wearing masks.

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.

REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Democrats introduced legislation on Tuesday seeking to pull back powers from the presidency, part of an effort by lawmakers to rein in the White House after what Democrats saw as overreach during the administration of former Republican President Donald Trump. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Representative Adam Schiff planned to introduced the bill at a news conference. During his presidency, Trump fired a series of inspectors general - watchdogs tasked with fighting corruption at federal agencies. Democrats hold only a slim majority of House seats, and House Republicans stand firmly behind Trump. Aides to House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

WASHINGTON — House Democrats plan to press forward with legislation aimed at preventing abuses of presidential power, strengthening Congress’ ability to enforce subpoenas and boosting protections for whistleblowers in what supporters of the measures say is largely a response to Donald Trump's actions as president. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will highlight the Protecting Our Democracy Act during a press conference alongside its chief sponsor, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. It would also ensure that incoming presidents have access to resources for the transition period following an election and would require the disclosure of contacts between the White House and Justice Department. Democrats introduced the measure in previous Congresses. If the measure advances in the House, Democrats would need at least 10 Republicans in the Senate to support the package for it to advance to a final vote.

As Texas’ abortion ban was set to take effect Sept. 1, the state’s largest antiabortion group implored residents to bring lawsuits against violators of the law. Since then, Texas abortion opponents have charted a more cautious course. Antiabortion activists haven’t sued the physician who last weekend said publicly that he was defying the Republican-led Texas Heartbeat Act, also known as SB 8, saying they have little incentive to make a test case out of his actions. The doctor, Alan Braid, practices in San Antonio and said he performed an abortion this month that exceeded the new restrictions.

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.

Jesse Benton worked as a campaign staffer for former Rep. Ron Paul, as well as Sens. In 2016, he was convicted of campaign finance crimes related to his role on the Ron Paul campaign. In an unsealed indictment, dated September 9, prosecutors allege Jesse Benton "conspired to illegally funnel thousands of dollars of foreign money from a Russian foreign national" into the campaign. In October 2016, Benton received a $100,000 wire transfer from the unnamed Russian national, the indictment states, promising him that he would get to "meet a celebrity" at a fundraiser in Philadelphia on September 22, 2016. The Russian national attended the fundraiser, according to the indictment, his travel to the United States facilitated by an alleged co-conspirator, Roy Douglas Wead, a conservative author.

Storm clouds roll in over the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, U.S., September 1, 2021. read moreMississippi's lawyers said in papers filed with the court in July that the Roe v. Wade ruling and the 1992 decision were both "egregiously wrong" and should be overturned. It has been a long-standing aim of religious conservatives to overturn Roe v. Wade. The Mississippi law, enacted in 2018, would ban abortion much earlier than that. The Supreme Court in 2016 and 2020 struck down restrictive abortion laws in Texas and Louisiana, but new justices appointed by Republican former President Donald Trump have moved the court further rightward.

Migrants take shelter along the Del Rio International Bridge at sunset as they await to be processed after crossing the Rio Grande river into the U.S. from Ciudad Acuna in Del Rio, Texas, U.S. September 19, 2021. Now, with some 16,000 migrants sheltering in precarious conditions under the International Bridge connecting Del Rio and Mexico's Ciudad Acuña, the resentment is getting worse. On Friday night, a local lawyer published a Facebook post saying that local school district buses were transferring migrants, mostly Haitians, to processing facilities. The local school district superintendent issued a statement explaining that only two buses, neither currently in use to transport students, had been deployed. A small group protested on Saturday, with one woman waving a sign that said "BIDEN BORDER CRISIS."

Biden will make his first appearance at the United Nations since taking office as president in January. We believe in the United Nations and its value," he said Monday evening before a meeting with U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. Biden's message will be "ending the war in Afghanistan closed a chapter focused on war and opens a chapter focused on ... purposeful, effective, intensive American diplomacy," a senior White House official said. Biden will also up the U.S. commitments on climate change and COVID-19 vaccine donations, the official said, without providing specifics. Biden is to convene a virtual COVID-19 summit from the White House on Wednesday on the margins of the United Nations meeting.

Lindsey Graham was reportedly unimpressed with Rudy Giuliani's voter-fraud arguments. He described them as "third grade", according to a new book, 'Peril', by Woodward and Costa. At the meeting, Giuliani discussed the election fraud evidence which he claimed could secure Trump a second term. "Give me some names," Graham reportedly said. I've tried to be helpful," said Graham on the Senate floor, distancing himself from the campaign to overturn the election.

Yes, you've seen this movie before: President Joe Biden and McConnell played major parts in it too.

Anxiety about congressional action over the debt ceiling didn't help matters either.
