negotiation that will try to solve issues such as immigration and border security health care defense spending and many other matters come tuesday federal offices will reopen hundreds of thousands of government employees will return to their jobs and a sense of normalcy will return to washington after three days of chaos but the difficult job of negotiating a more permanent solution to immigration and to the budget will just be beginning weaving the country wondering whether another stalemate is just around the corner heidi joe castro al-jazeera washington david good friend is a former staff secretary to president bill clinton he says the funding crisis is likely to head republicans more than the democrats i don't think the american
people are persuaded that this is democrats causing a problem i think rather than the party that has this much political power is this inept at governing the voters we're already starting to see that just recently just today it was revealed in some polling that generic democratic candidates for congress are up twelve percentage points over incumbent republicans in house and senate races that is staggered it just to put it in perspective when newt gingrich in one thousand and four letter republican takeover of congress from the democrats republicans were up plus two points in order to college it's the democrats are ten points more in favor ability raised going into these midterm elections this year i don't think the republicans didn't sell anything leavers or less few hours. the opening date for the u.s. embassy which is moving from tel aviv to jerusalem has been brought forward to the end of two thousand nine hundred nineteen u.s. vice president mike pence made the announcement in israel but was briefing
