The House passed a bill Monday to fund the government until Dec. 11, which would end the government shutdown and allow the federal government to resume its operations, but Senate Democrats have said they would block the legislation if it reaches the floor.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer Charles (Chuck) Ellis SchumerTrump: Dems will stop Kavanaugh nomination if they take over Congress Dems push back on using federal funds to pay for border wall MORE (D-N.Y.) said the Democrats’ stance on the bill could have a major impact on the country’s recovery.

He said the GOP’s move would prevent millions of Americans from benefiting from the economic recovery.

“If we don’t get a bill passed, this country will not recover,” Schumer said in a statement.

But the House is unlikely to pass the bill in the coming weeks, as Republicans will need Democratic votes to overcome Democratic objections to the bill.

Democrats have also voiced concerns about the plan, which will not fund any health care for the roughly 14 million people who have been left without coverage for more than two months.

Democrats say that the bill does not go far enough to address the nation’s chronic health care problems and that it will leave millions of people without health insurance.

Republicans say the legislation would increase the federal deficit and hurt the economy, and that they plan to make the same changes to the federal funding bill that they did to the legislation passed by the Senate last week.

Democrats on the House floor have said that they will not allow the House to vote on the Senate bill, which passed the Senate earlier this week.
