Day 1024

1/ With eight days until a government shutdown, House Republicans canceled votes on two spending bills and adjourned for Veterans’ Day. Republicans have only approved seven of the 12 full-year spending measures individually, which were due Oct. 1. Speaker Mike Johnson, however, has been forced to cancel votes on three of the five remaining spending bills in the past two weeks after facing the same internal Republican divisions that led to the ousting of Kevin McCarthy as speaker. Biden, meanwhile, told reporters: “I wish the House would just get to work. The idea we’re playing games with a shutdown at this moment is just bizarre.” (Politico / NBC News / Axios / Bloomberg / Punchbowl)
