House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made a record-long speech speech against the House spending bill Wednesday, February 7, 208.

Buoyed by the sudden likelihood of a budget pact, lawmakers are on track to avoid a repeat of last month's government shutdown - though U.S. President Donald Trump unexpectedly raised the possibility of closing things down again if he can't have his way on immigration.

It would, would include a major boost for military spending, with slightly smaller increases for domestic programs.

"During the night when I was thinking and praying so hard about our 'Dreamers, ' I thought, maybe we should just pray all day on the floor of Congress", she said.
