Republicans have repeatedly accused Democrats of failing to take negotiations seriously. The administration recently floated $2.1 billion in border security funding, which was rejected by Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y,). Democrats have said they are not willing to go beyond their $1.3 billion offer.

"We do expect this to go on for a while.”

On day seven of the partial government shutdown, it appears increasingly more likely the House won't act on legislation until Democrats take back the majority next month.

House GOP leadership advised members there would be no votes this week as they wait on the Senate to act.

The lower chamber passed an amended version of the Senate-passed continuing resolution just ahead of their Christmas recess that would provide $5.7 billion in border wall and security funding and $8.7 in emergency disaster relief. The measure does not have the support needed to pass the upper chamber.
