If Congress can not pass a funding bill before midnight, the government will shut down for the second time in less than a month.
"We will effectively shut down the federal government for no good reason", said Sen.
The White House's Office of Management and Budget said earlier in the evening it was preparing for a shutdown if the stopgap bill did not win passage on time in Congress.
"I love bipartisanship, as you know", said Sen.
Mulvaney's notice says federal employees should report to work Friday to "undertake orderly shutdown activities".
"Not only will it end this series of. fiscal crises that have gridlocked this body, it will also deliver a large investment in our military and robust funding of middle-class programs", the Senate's top Democrat Chuck Schumer told colleagues.
In evening remarks on the Senate floor that lasted an hour, the senator from Kentucky said the bill would "loot the Treasury". "The outcome of this vote will not be any different after the regular time expires than it would be if we had that vote at 10:30 [p.m.]". "But if they have 170 and we can't put up 40 to support a bipartisan bill coming from the Senate, then we get blamed for a shutdown". Federal funding for most government programs runs out at midnight. Lawmakers are facing a midnight deadline to keep the government open.
Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., a member of that fiscally conservative caucus, told All Things Considered Thursday that he is not confident the House has the votes to pass the spending bill and hopes enough House Republicans will oppose the idea "that we're going to spend away our future". "So if we can negotiate a deal like I think we've gotten that essentially meets every other one of our priorities then I think that's where a lot of the Democrats are".
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, among the most prominent hawks in Congress, mocked Paul on Twitter for the call to withdraw from Afghanistan, saying that would not be a good idea.
Under the bill, the Pentagon would get an additional $80 billion in fiscal year 2018 and $85 billion in fiscal year 2019, while domestic spending would grow by $63 billion in fiscal year 2018 and $68 billion the following fiscal year.
IOF Kills Palestinian in Alleged Stabbing Attack
On Wednesday morning, a Palestinian man was shot dead by a settler over stabbing claims in Karmei Tzur settlement near Hebron. The identity of the dead man did not match that of the suspect given by Israeli authorities as the stabber.
"We support funding our troops, but growing the size of government by 13 percent is not what the voters sent us here to do", the group said on Twitter.
In an appeal to Democrats to vote for the bill, Ryan said during a news conference that he would bring an immigration bill to the House floor after spending measures are enacted.
The deal was announced Wednesday as a bipartisan breakthrough that could free Congress from an endless cycle of spending fights.
Some other veteran Democrats - some of whom said holding the budget deal hostage to action on Dreamer immigrants had already proven to be a failed strategy - appeared more likely to support the agreement than junior progressives elected in recent years.
The deal also spends more on other administration priorities, including infrastructure and the opioid drug epidemic.
The White House backed the deal - despite President Donald Trump's outburst a day earlier that he'd welcome a government shutdown if Democrats didn't accept his immigration-limiting proposals.
But frustrations were clear in both sides of the Capitol, where just hours earlier leaders had been optimistic that the budget deal was a sign they had left behind some of their chronic dysfunction.
The bipartisan compromise would provide the Pentagon and domestic programs with an extra $300 billion over the next two years. Legislation to increase the debt ceiling is always a headache, especially for House GOP leaders whose rank and file have in the past used the votes to register objection to deficit spending.
In the House on Wednesday, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., gave an eight-hour speech pushing for protections for DREAMers. But many appeared resolved to hold the line against any deal that did not address the party's immigration concerns.
Approval of the measure in the Senate seemed assured - eventually - but the situation in the House remained dicey.
