The Right Take: Democrats don’t believe their own rhetoric or they want children to die
On Thursday, the House passed a temporary spending measure and six years of funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program. Although Republicans have a slim majority in the Senate, Senate rules require a spending bill to get 60 votes. This gives Democrats the power to shut down the government, which they look eager to do. Democrats in both houses want protections for illegal aliens brought to the U.S. as children.

UFC lightweight stars Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson again have been booked to fight. The bout will headline UFC 223 on April 7 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The UFC 223 bout will mark the fourth time Ferguson and Nurmagomedov have been scheduled to fight. Ferguson won the interim title with a submission of Kevin Lee in December, his 10th straight victory. Nurmagomedov is 25-0 overall, 9-0 in the UFC.
