Paul took to the Senate floor several times Thursday and refused to agree to move up the time for a vote on the bill, which required unanimous consent from all senators.

"After more than a decade and a half of combat and years of unnecessary budget dysfunction, we are stretching our military to the breaking point", said Schneider in a statement.

The US House passed the bill on Friday in a 240-186 vote. "Must elect more Republicans in 2018 Election!" "Fortunately, DACA not included in this Bill, negotiations to start now!"

President Trump has requested that the military begin preparations for a military parade in the nation's capital, CBS News has confirmed.

"First and foremost, diverting millions of dollars away from training our troops and supporting our military, especially at a time when Congress is struggling to pass annual appropriations, should be enough to kill this idea".

The House narrowly passed a sweeping bipartisan budget accord Friday morning, ending an hours-long government shutdown and clearing a path for huge spending increases for both the Pentagon and domestic programs. The budget bill "also means JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!"

Most Democrats opposed the measure, following the lead of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who tried and failed to use the moment to secure a promise for a separate vote on immigration.

A band of tea party Republicans swung against the legislation as well, repelled by its spiraling spending levels.

The bill stalled in the Senate Thursday night when one of the opponents, Sen.

Paul's protest forced Congress to miss a midnight deadline for passing a funding measure to keep the government operating.
