    As bipartisan negotiations on a sprawling year-end package to fund the government remain mired in gridlock, Democrats have a new negotiation plan: publicly releasing their own partisan proposal on Monday. Democratic appropriators want that plan, which they’ve been drafting behind the scenes while bipartisan negotiations flounder, to come up for a vote in the House and Senate next week, according to a Senate Democratic aide, despite its certain failure in the upper chamber. Both sides are refusing to budge in…

    Senate conservatives plot their second act after taking on McConnell
    The Senate GOP’s upstarts aren’t done yet. About a half-dozen Republican senators, most of whom publicly opposed Mitch McConnell as their leader last month, are getting more organized in a bid to exert their leverage in the chamber. They’re pushing their colleagues for a formal legislative agenda and to extract more concessions from Democrats, according to multiple senators and aides. These GOP senators have been quietly meeting on a regular basis to strategize future battles worth picking within McConnell’s ranks,…

    McCarthy or bust? House GOP stuck in ‘burning building’ over speaker’s gavel
    Like many big families and the cast of “Seinfeld,” House Republicans are airing their grievances this holiday season. Simmering frustrations over the slow-burning conservative campaign to derail Kevin McCarthy‘s speakership bid boiled over during a closed-door House GOP conference meeting on Tuesday, with Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) and other allies of the minority leader standing up to advocate on his behalf, according to three people in the room. The pro-McCarthy camp is privately at odds over…

    Police officers who responded to the Jan. 6 Capitol attack and some of their family members pointedly declined to shake the hands of Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy as they accepted Congressional Gold Medals on Tuesday. Officers shook hands with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer as they accepted the medals, but quickly moved past the House and Senate Republican leaders — despite McConnell outstretching his hand. All senior congressional leaders were participating in the event to…

    Lawmakers labor to break impasses stalling massive spending bill
    Top lawmakers are still grasping for the deal they need to tee up a sprawling year-end spending package as potential pitfalls for the bill pile up, nearly guaranteeing that Congress will be working until Christmas or later to fund the government. Democrats and Republicans leading the negotiations are still tens of billions of dollars apart on a total amount for domestic programs, preventing lawmakers from cementing an agreement on the overall funding levels necessary to smooth out the finer points.…

    GOP senators tune out House conservatives’ impeachment calls
    House conservatives want their party to go big on impeachment next year. Across the Capitol, Senate Republicans on their would-be jury are not ready to convict. While House GOP leaders feel intense pressure from their Donald Trump-aligned base and colleagues to impeach President Joe Biden or a top member of his Cabinet, many of the party’s senators want nothing to do with it. In fact, some Republican senators are openly signaling that even if impeachment managed to squeak through the…

    The No. 2 Senate Republican is distancing himself from Donald Trump after the former president’s call to suspend the Constitution — though there’s no sign it will lead any new GOP lawmaker to actively oppose Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign. In his latest of an ongoing series of calls to be reinstated as president, Trump on Saturday falsely cited “massive fraud” in his 2020 loss to President Joe Biden before calling for a “termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even…

    Jeffries and Schumer begin their Dem buddy act
    The most important thing Chuck Schumer and Hakeem Jeffries have in common isn’t their New York City borough. It’s their shared leadership style: Neither top-down nor reflexively ideological, they move easily among progressives and centrists alike. The similarities pretty much end there. Jeffries, raised in working-class Crown Heights, leaned into his low-key persona to build the alliances he needed to slide into Nancy Pelosi’s job when it opened last week. Schumer is the preternaturally gregarious son of an exterminator with…

    Longtime Arizona GOP Rep. Jim Kolbe dies at 80
    PHOENIX — Jim Kolbe, a Republican congressman who represented a heavily Democratic region of Arizona for more than two decades and was a proponent of gay rights, has died. He was 80. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said in a statement that Kolbe died Saturday. Ducey ordered flags lowered until sunset Sunday. Kolbe served in the Arizona Legislature before being elected in 1984 to Congress, where he often was at odds with other Republicans over his support for free trade and…

    ‘A deranged Anti-semite’: GOP outraged at Ye’s latest horror show
    Republicans reacted with outrage over Ye’s virulently antisemitic comments to right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones Thursday — the latest in a string of episodes involving the rapper that have forced elected Republicans to scurry for distance. Ye appeared on Jones’ “InfoWars” show with Nick Fuentes — the known racist and antisemite who joined Ye at Mar-a-Lago last week to dine with former President Donald Trump — and made a host of antisemitic comments with his face covered by a black…

    Friends to the left of him, critics to the right: McCarthy’s stuck in the chase
    House Republicans are playing high-stakes tug of war with Kevin McCarthy’s speakership dreams. And now both sides are digging in their heels. On the GOP leader’s right, conservatives are meeting with House rules officials to strategize ahead of a planned floor challenge to McCarthy during the speakership vote on Jan. 3. Meanwhile, centrist Republicans are making threats of their own to colleagues who’d bulldoze McCarthy — including that they’ll work with Democrats to recruit a GOP speaker candidate more to…

    Dems’ rail-strike challenge: Save the economy and your ties to unions
    House progressives forced Democratic leaders to boost paid leave for railroad workers before agreeing to avert a potentially disastrous strike. They may end up with little more than a symbolic win. The compromise arranged between Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s leadership team and an emboldened left hinged on a seemingly elegant solution to avoid a rail strike: House members voted on both the base labor agreement and a separate bill adding seven days of paid sick leave to it. When the two-part…

    Congress is considering whether to seat a delegate from the Cherokee Nation for the first time — a proposal nearly 200 years in the making. The non-voting delegate would be Kimberly Teehee, a former Obama administration adviser on Native American issues, who was appointed to the position in 2019. Non-voting members of Congress have no say on the final passage of bills, but they can speak on the House floor and introduce legislation. In 1835, the Cherokee Nation signed the…

    How Jeffries made his ascension to House Dem leader ‘look easy’
    The strategy behind Hakeem Jeffries’ yearslong ascent to House Democratic leader, as his top allies see it, focused on making the outcome feel inevitable. And in the end, it did. The New York Democrat culminated a remarkably frictionless climb of the party ladder on Wednesday, securing every vote and avoiding a single challenger. He became the highest-ranking Black congressional leader in U.S. history just 12 days after formally declaring his run. “He makes it look easy, what is difficult. That’s…

    The GOP’s same-sex marriage evolution: A slow, choppy tidal shift
    Thom Tillis has helped ink plenty of bipartisan deals over the past two years. His advocacy for protecting same-sex marriage rights still surprised some of his fellow senators. “When people first saw me get involved, they were scratching their heads,” the North Carolina Republican said in an interview just before the marriage bill passed the Senate on Tuesday. The second-term Tillis saw the opportunity to put his own mark on an issue central to LGBTQ rights just a few weeks…

    Conservatives sharpen their knives as McCarthy works to peel off skeptics
    “Knives Out” isn’t just playing on screen this week: Conservatives are digging in against Kevin McCarthy before the conclusion of a closed-door fight over consolidating the House GOP leader’s power. As House Republicans keep debating their rules for next year’s majority, the Freedom Caucus — home to several members seeking to derail McCarthy’s speakership bid — is pushing for institutional changes that they argue will restore power to rank-and-file members. Before that debate Wednesday, McCarthy allies likely will move to…
