I really think the dems blew, I could be wrong but I doubt it.

Their premise is too conflicting. On one hand their saying Trump is a fool yet they think he’s reasonable enough to bend to their government shutdown threat.

You don’t shut down the government for DACA by throwing under the bus the CHIP kids.

They also may lose their moral edge over the GOP with this act.

They had them on the run now this can derail that.

The last time they did that was under Obama wasn't it?

They're playing hookey again, those sneaky bastards.

Hmm american children vs illegal aliens. Yeah a really hard choice...no wait it's not. Democrats just revealed their true face. They don't care about anything but themselves unless it benefits them like the millions of voters who happen to be Dreamers. What a coincidence.

thank god, let's fire them all and start over
Ha! Exactly what I thought when I saw the thread title.

My heart goes out to the workers who might be put on furlough like last time. The whole appeal of working a state or government job is the stability. It certainly isn't the pay.

Can’t lose what you didn’t have in the first place.



Now you can all go back to blaming each other.
While they go on paid walkabouts, just because they disagreed with each other.

Fools.

Thank-you for starting this thread. Now I ask this burning question in the right forum.


Over the Short Term, Over the Medium Term, and over the Long Term...Which class of voters are hurt THE MOST by a shut down of government?

DEMOCRAT VOTERS
or
REPUBLICAN VOTERS



In this case it's Democrat voters that will suffer the most for all time periods.

Because there will be less of them in November.

Somebody will do it anyway on a furlough basis.

The countdown clock on FoxNews is the same one from New Year's Eve.

It's now at T-minus 12:21 and counting down to ZERO.

Live Video of the Senate Floor on the left half of the TV screen.

When it gets to ZERO, what will happen on the Senate Floor?

Congress creatures still gets paid, regardless of whether the Government is Open or Closed, don't they?

The government departments will have enough residual budget to last a week or two. Normally, that would give them time to pass an emergency bill to provide stop-gap funding, then they will haggle it out as in previous years.

Of course, this is Trump, so he might just let the Democrats walk into their own trap. In that case, the money runs out, government payments to preferred contractors fail, they lay off people and there's a recession in the USA. That in turn will become a global recession.

You just need to see what happened to Carillion in the UK, when the UK government didn't pay them 40 million on time. The fallout on that is just beginning with people being laid off.
