MAYBE REPUBLICANS WON’T GET BLAMED FOR SHUTDOWN AS USUAL … #SchumerShutdown
As the U.S. government shut down last night, actually only those jobs and individuals with non-essential functions. An interesting thing happened, many are actually holding Democrats responsible. A CNN poll states that 56% believe that DACA not worth a shutdown of the government, while just 34% choose DACA over a shutdown. The Democrats are the only ones who chose illegal aliens over American citizens and the brave men and women of our Armed Forces. Democrats break narrowly in favor of DACA as 49% say it’s more important vs. 42% who say avoiding a shutdown is the priority. However, majorities of both Republicans (75%) and independents (57%) say avoiding a shutdown is more important. It is easy to put forth a poll that says, who is to blame. Of course the LEFT and Never-Trumpers will always blame the Republicans and Trump. However, to ask the question as to was DACA worth shutting the government down is telling.
Democrats are going to have a hard time in 2018 telling the American people they first, did not want them to keep more of their own money with regards to Trump tax cut and now, that illegals are more important than American citizens.
With hours to go before a midnight deadline for Congress to fund the government or shut it down, most Americans say avoiding a shutdown is more important than passing a bill to maintain the program allowing people brought to the US illegally as children to stay, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS.
But Democrats taking a hard line on legislation connecting government funding to the popular program known as DACA appear to have the backing of their constituents, and more overall say President Donald Trump or the Republicans in Congress would be responsible for a shutdown if one happens.
Overall, about half of Americans say they would blame either Trump (21%) or his Republican counterparts in Congress (26%) should Congress fail to fund the government by the midnight Friday deadline. About a third, 31%, say they would hold the Democrats in Congress responsible, and another 10% say they’d blame all three groups. Among Republicans, 62% would blame the Democrats in Congress, while 43% of Democrats would blame Republicans on Capitol Hill and 29% would blame Trump.
