U.S. Government shutdown
I reply hope this comes back to bite the democrats in the ass in the midterms. The spending bill has NOTHING to do with immigration. To refuse to fund our military and the rest of the government just to protect illegal aliens is insanity. The democrats have shown their cards. They are the party of illegals over citizens. Democrats are against the military. Against the police. Against law and order.

Time to end the filibuster rule and move to a simple majority for all bills. It's the only way to do things now. Nothing will get done if the opposition party just votes no on everything. No paychecks for our military? They've lost their minds when non citizens are more important that real citizens. I hope they round them all up and send them back to the shitholes they came from.

Negative. It takes 60 votes to pass a bill. Only 5 democrats voted YES. That means 44 democrats voted NO to fund military paychecks, CHIP, government employees and a host of other things. And their reason? They want protections for ILLEGAL aliens. Instead of taking care of Americans FIRST. 90% of republicans voted YES. Remember that.

4 Republicans also voted against it. Republicans own this 100%.

How? Even if those 4 republicans voted YES, the bill still fails 54-46. Need 60 votes. Why don't people get this? The senate has a filibuster rule. It's not a simple majority like the house. The Republican house passed their bill. Democrats BLOCKED this bill. It's on them.

What happened to Mr. Art of the Deal? Holding CHIP Hostage for months to use as a bargaining chip was damnable, claiming this is on Dems when Republicans can't keep their own house in order. Nah son, this is all on Republicans, they own this and every other horrible thing they have done or tried to do this last year. 2018 is not looking good for them.

Keep telling yourself that. The RNC pulled $132 million in donations last year, a record for any political party in a non election year. Trump's base is larger than the usual turnout in a midterm, and they will show up.

"Republicans allowed CHIP to expire, and now they are excoriating Democrats for not supporting this bill by claiming that they don't support poor children. Was there ever such a scurrilous and cynical ploy? This is on the order of the man who killed his parents and threw himself on the mercy of the court because he was an orphan."
