Democrats, for their part, placed the blame on Republicans, pointing to the fact that they are the majority in both the House and Senate to avoid accusations of simply being obstructionists.
"They shut down the government over a completely unrelated issue and the bill that they're opposing is a bill that they support", Ryan said Sunday, addressing Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) which was at the center of debate in the Senate before the government shut down. "A number of states are going to run out of money for children's health insurance", said Ryan. The leader of the hard-right group, Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., said Ryan promised future votes on extra defense spending and on a conservative, restrictive immigration bill, though a source familiar with the discussion said Ryan didn't guarantee an immigration vote.
Thus, the strategy was created to produce either a win with virtually no GOP concessions, or a government shutdown that could pretty cleanly be blamed on Democrats.
Ryan said Trump was leaving "room for negotiation". House Speaker Paul Ryan immediately summoned reporters to try to pin the blame on top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer of NY. The House's bill that the Senate voted down-44 Democrats and four Republicans voted against it-funded the government through February 16. "There is no good reason for Senate Democrats to keep willfully forcing a shutdown on this country". Trump ended DACA in 2017, but set a deadline by which the Congress could revive the Obama-era program by March 5.

Trump tweeted on January 2 the announcements were due on January 8 before he postponed them until Wednesday January 17. They're not on Trump's public schedule for Wednesday .
That news would come as a surprise to Ryan himself, whose own government website still contains a "frequently asked questions" page on the 2013 shutdown, one of which is "Will members of the military be paid?" Also imaginable: lawmakers working over the weekend with a shutdown underway - watched by a public that has demonstrated it has abhorred such standoffs in the past. Trump's historically poor popularity and a string of Democratic special election victories have fueled that party's hopes of capturing control of the House and perhaps the Senate.
Congress must act by midnight Friday or the government will begin immediately locking its doors. "Stop holding our troops and children's health insurance hostage".
In the event of a shutdown, food inspections and other vital services would continue, as would Social Security, other federal benefit programs and most military operations. The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked.
A shutdown would be the first since 2013, when tea party Republicans - in a strategy not unlike the one Schumer is employing now - sought to use a must-pass funding bill to try to force then-President Barack into delaying implementation of his marquee health care law.
