WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME THE GOP EVER WON A GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN BATTLE? MORE DONALD TRUMP WINNING!!!
In the game of political chicken, Democrats blinked first and voted to end the government shutdown. Yes, this was a win for President Trump and the Republican party. Democrats reading the tea leaves and the polls knew that they were overwhelming on the wrong side of shutting a government down for DACA. Even the New York Times admits the Democrats blinked. Democrats overplayed their hand and had to cave. The Democrats were prioritizing illegal aliens over the U.S. military. Even the most insane in the Democrat party knew that was a losing battle ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.
Ingraham: Trump shuts down the Democrats
The Senate on Monday was on track to vote to reopen the federal government, after Senate Democrats agreed to let the bill through even though it doesn’t include immigration language they are seeking.
Democrats on Friday opposed a bill to fund the government through Feb. 16 because it didn’t include language to help the Dreamers, that group of immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children.
But Democrats changed their mind on Monday, after getting assurances from Republicans that the Senate would work on immigration next as long as the government was reopened, and hold votes soon. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said that was enough to get Democrats to support the spending bill.
“We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating a global agreement,” Schumer said.
The Far-Left is livid at Democrat Minority Leader Schumer after making the deal to reopen the government after just 3 days. They are calling him a sell-out. Thus it went from the #ShumerShutdown to the #SchumerSellout. Is the Democrat party ready for that civil war they are about to have come 2020?
Liberal activists are furious with Democratic senators after most of them agreed to reopen the federal government without a firm path to shielding young immigrants from deportation.
As the third day of the shutdown dawned, liberal advocates and immigration groups fired off a joint statement blasting as “unacceptable” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s offer merely to hold a vote on immigration — with no promises for action from the House or White House — in exchange for Democratic votes to reopen the government. But three hours later, Democratic senators agreed to just those terms — sparking anger on the left.
But activist groups that have provided his caucus crucial firepower during fights against GOP health care and tax bills were not buying that explanation.
Murshed Zaheed, political director of the liberal group CREDO Action, said Democrats’ decision shows Schumer’s willingness to betray progressives.
“Call it the #SchumerSellout,” he said in an interview. “Hashtagged.”
From Yahoo News comes, ‘Dreamers’ disappointed that Congress deferred DACA deal. Hey dreamers, what do you think the “D” in DACA actually stands for?
