Yes the Democrats want a government shutdown tonight.

Gov funding is expiring at midnight !!

Lots of chaos if this happens.

The House passed a funding bill yesterday.

The Senate may vote today or tonight.

BUT, Democrats are stalling because they want a DACA deal inserted !!

SO, that means Democrats will use all pawns available to get their anti-Trump messages in the limelight.

One pawn is the CHIP funding. Democrats are using "The Children" as pawns.

Dirty jilted Democrats on a war-hammer binge again and again.

DaaaaHaHaHa

The clocks are tiking and Democrats are failing.

I think you're mistaken there Trump can run the entire government on executive orders. You do realize the dollar in it's current form rests entirely on executive orders right?

Last I read there was nothing done to continue military pay right?

IF that is true, that will play real well with the military voters... democrats think illegal immigrants are more important than the men and women who swore and oath to protect and defend the constitution.

DACA potentially gives the dems 10 million votes next election. That’s their only hope at this point.

They should shut the government down and hopefully they won't reopen. People need to see that we can function with like 25% of the government...

Government shuts down every holiday and weekend and the sun still rises.

I'm fine with another government shutdown. I only wish we as citizens could choose which services are "essential" and which should be shut down.

Shutdown: Congress, BLM, etc...

Lots of republicans including Lindsey Graham want a DACA deal. Eighty percent of the country wants a DACA deal too.
Trump is digging his heels in because no one wants to fund his stupid wall.

As far as I can see, there is not one thing in the proposed budget that dems oppose.

The want chip, they want to end the Cadillac tax, etc.

So they are refusing to vote against positions they want, because they also want DACA added to this.

Daca has nothing to do with the budget and would still be able to be passed later as this budget does nothing at all that would hamper a bill on daca.

So the dems are saying that they care so little about things like CHIP that they refuse to fund it unless other added measure s that have nothing to do with the budget are added.

Where are all of those that shed tears over CHIP not being funded at now?

Can anyone show me anything in the republicn proposed budget that Dems are against?

It will be interesting to see what happens when the Democrats non-working base don’t get their Government checks thanks to the liberals in Congress. If you take away their Government subsidized beer and cigarettes things will get nasty real fast for the Dems.

Republicans don't even have 50 votes in the Senate.

Right now a minimum of 4 Senators won't vote for the horrid CR, talk of 5 to 7 won't vote for it.

Takes a big set of brass to say it's the Dems when even your own party can't even reach 50, never mind 60.

Anndddd, the Tumpest agreed to a deal last week and backed out over 36 hours, ask Lindsey Graham who was there. The Dems have said they will vote for the deal that "the Trump" agreed to, so what's the problem?

Talk tot he guy who changed his mind.

Its called compromise.

That said...Congress can't seem to get anything done. Its apparent that the folks sitting up there would rather just let us eat cake.

No because the main stream media is a branch of the democratic party, and they will convince people this is the republicans fault.

The dems are voting against a budget that they support everything in, because they want to add a non related ussue, and the main stream media will someone try to twist this to being trumps fault.

Cut insurance to over 10 million American children to force the Gov to allow 800k illegal children immigrants to stay....

Makes sense if you're a Dem.
