From Fox News, here is more:

A group of GOP hardliners joined Democrats in sinking House Republicans’ stopgap funding bill on Friday, significantly raising the chances of a government shutdown happening over the weekend.

A procedural vote to advance the bill passed earlier in the day, but final passage failed on an 198 to 232 vote. Twenty-one Republicans voted against it, including Reps. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., and Nancy Mace, R-S.C., among others.

It’s a heavy blow to Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., whose leadership has faced public threats throughout the spending battle so far from some in the right flank of his conference.

Federal government funding expires at the end of the day on Sept. 30. If the House and Senate can’t strike a deal by then, a partial shutdown threatens to force all federal functions deemed “nonessential” to grind to a halt.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has been dealing with an unruly GOP conference for much of his leadership so far
A short-term funding extension, known as a continuing resolution (CR), is almost certainly needed to give lawmakers more time to cobble together 12 individual spending bills for fiscal year 2024.

Meanwhile, Matt Gaetz and Anna Pauline are showing leadership through integrity by withholding pay during the shutdown:

From Newsmax:

Conservative Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., on Tuesday requested that his salary be withheld until Congress passes appropriations to fund the government.

A government shutdown looms unless lawmakers agree to funding before Saturday’s deadline.

Gaetz sent a letter Tuesday regarding his pay to Catherine Szpindor, chief administrative officer (CAO) of the House of Representatives.

“It is my understanding that pursuant to the Constitution, members of Congress will continue to receive their pay during a lapse in appropriations,” Gaetz wrote in the letter, first obtained by the Daily Caller.

“Therefore, I am requesting that in the case of a lapse of appropriations beginning at 12:00 a.m. on October 1, 2023, my pay be withheld until legislation has taken effect to end such lapse in appropriations in its entirety.”

Gaetz, a critic of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., has been adamant that the House needs to pass separate appropriations bills to keep the government funded and not continue to send billions of dollars to Ukraine.
