Senate moves immediately to cloture vote
If McConnell doesn't follow through, "he will have breached the trust" of Democrats and Republicans, Schumer says. Unspoken: there's another chance to shut the government down on Feb. 8.
Our short national nightmare is over.
Schumer confirms on the floor there is a deal: Democrats will vote to end the shutdown in exchange for a debate/vote by Feb. 8.
Will be interesting to hear from Democrats why they believe McConnell, and how the House figures into a DACA vote deal. But basically, the deal allows Republicans to say "We didn't vote on immigration" and Democrats to say "We won a promise to vote on immigration."
