RE: Senate Moves Mikulski Bill

As an update to my update of progress on the border bill, late breaking Wednesday is the news House Republicans can not get 218 votes to back the supplemental appropriation bill, even in its pared-down state. The new tactic will be to require the House to vote on a bill to rein in DACA if the supplemental bill passes. The hope is this will entice enough conservatives to get on the bus for the border supplemental. There’s still some opposition, notably the usual suspects, Steve King and Mo Brooks. The vote is scheduled for tomorrow, and that’s also the last scheduled day in session. We shall see.
