Moments ago, Mitch McConnell shared a proposal regarding the shutdown. This is it:
The CR goes until February 8 instead of four weeks.
If, by February 8, a deal has not been reached on DACA then McConnell will move DACA to the front burner.
In that case, any senator can propose a bill that will be voted on.
It is not linked to the new CR that will be required on February 8.
There is no 1 a.m. vote it will now be held at noon tomorrow.
This gives Schumer a face-saving way to climb down. It doesn’t guarantee the House will go along with the bill or that the White House will.
If the Democrats take this, it is a surrender in all but name.
