Quick Glance: White House prepares for government shutdown as House Republicans lack a viable plan
  • Speaker Kevin McCarthy announces that the House will start voting on the latest plan next week.

  • The White House is preparing to direct federal agencies to get ready for a shutdown after House Republicans left without a realistic plan to fund the government and avoid disruptive consequences.

  • A federal shutdown after September 30 appears likely unless Speaker Kevin McCarthy can convince his rebellious, right-wing faction to approve a temporary funding measure to prevent closures during ongoing talks.

  • The standoff with House Republicans over government funding jeopardizes various activities, including military and law enforcement personnel pay, food safety and aid programs, air travel, and passport processing, potentially causing havoc in the US economy.

Quick Glance: Five Indicators of Republican Electoral Setbacks
  • Republicans have faced multiple electoral and legal defeats, raising concerns about their ability to regain the White House.

  • A recent Harvard-Harris survey showed that Trump would have the support of 44 percent of Americans in a presidential election matchup against Biden, compared to just 40 percent for the incumbent. However, the GOP's national improvement has not translated into success at the state level, where the party suffered losses in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Florida.

  • In August, Ohio voters rejected a Republican attempt to make it harder to protect abortion rights in the state constitution.

  • In July, a court in New York ordered lawmakers to redraw electoral boundaries, which is expected to give Democrats an advantage in several more seats.

  • However, UAW President Shawn Fain stated that the union will never endorse Trump.
