USA — Nagbabala si US President Barack Obama sa Wall Street na dapat maalarma ito sa kinakaharap na political crisis na nararanasan ngayon ng bansa.

Ito’y matapos hindi muling nakabuo ng compromise ang Pangulo sa pakikipag-usap nito sa Congressional leaders kagabi na naglalayong wakasan na ang government shutdown.

Naturuan pa rin ang Democrats at Republicans sa may sala kung bakit nararanasan ngayon ng Amerika ang shut down

Sa October 17 ay posibleng maubusan na ng pondo pambayad ng mga bills ang US Government maliban na lang kung muling umutang ang bansa na lalo pang nagpapataas ng debt ceiling ng Amerika. (UNTV News)

Hundreds of car drivers joined an anti-government protest on Wednesday evening in the Armenian capital Yerevan.

Some cars were driving along central city streets with protest banners, others stopped and blocked roads.

Armenia’s political party said later on Wednesday it was formally leaving the governing coalition amid a political crisis and favored early elections.

It announced its decision after police took up positions in the center of the Armenian capital as tens of thousands of people protested against the ruling elite and the acting prime minister suggested new parliamentary elections to defuse the political crisis. — Reuters

U.S. President Donald Trump unveiled a long-awaited infrastructure plan on Monday that asks the U.S. Congress to authorize $200 billion over 10 years to stimulate $1.5 trillion in improvements paid for by states, localities and private investors.

“I submitted legislative principles to Congress that will spur the biggest and boldest infrastructure investment in American history. The framework will generate an unprecedented 1.5 to 1.7 trillion dollar investment in American infrastructure,” said

The plan would reshape how the federal government funds roads, bridges, highways and other infrastructure projects. If it comes to fruition, many Americans could face higher local taxes, fees, and tolls.

The administration called the proposal a starting point for negotiations.

“One of the reasons we like the public-private is we’ll get some of that involved in getting these things done quickly, much more rapidly than you would get them done as a government, as good as some of these governments are,” said Trump.

Legislation for Trump’s infrastructure proposal would need 60 votes for passage in the 100-seat senate. But with Republicans holding only a 51-49 majority, they would need some Democratic support for passage.

The president is set to meet with congressional leaders on Wednesday on the proposal. Trump will head to the Orlando, Florida, area on Friday to sell the plan to the public.— Reuters

Senate adjourns without deal to end shutdown

Senate leaders adjourned Sunday night without reaching a deal to end the government shutdown.

Senate leaders adjourned Sunday night without reaching a deal to end the government shutdown, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell scheduled a Monday vote amid renewed hopes that the funding impasse may soon end.

The full impact of a shutdown will hit Monday when hundreds of thousands of furloughed government workers don’t show up for work and many federal offices throughout the nation are closed.

Protecting the young immigrants — known as “dreamers” — has been the major priority for Democrats in the government funding fight that resulted in a shutdown at midnight Friday.

The Senate set a vote for 12 p.m. on Monday on advancing a measure that would provide temporary government funding through February 8 and allow thousands of federal employees to return to work.

McConnell also offered an olive branch to Democrats when he pledged in remarks on the Senate floor to bring immigration legislation to a floor debate in early February if the issue had not been dealt with by then.

“So let’s step back from the brink. Let’s stop victimizing the American people, and get back to work on their behalf,” said McConnell.

Refusing to support another short-term government funding extension last week, Democrats demanded that the Republican president live up to an earlier agreement to protect dreamers from deportation. — Reuters
