Tell everybody you know the spam Chuck Schumer's twitter account as well as those Senators of both sides who voted down the bill. They are the ones responsible. Fill their voicemails, send them nasty letters, let them know they will not be getting votes if they are from your state.

In the interim, consider recommending they move on base like many thousands of other American servicemen to help out. They are trained to survive intense combat behind enemy lines, surely they can survive a temporary funding hiccup or possibly on a base.

Over a dozen shutdown since 1976, life went on after.


Stupid.

Democrat Claire McCaskill proposed a stand alone bill to pay all military personnel, just one bill, not impacting anything else, to do nothing more than pay people like the son of the OP

McConnell objected.

All the Alt-Right people here can scream about the awful Dems that they hate with a white hot intensity, hating Dems far more than any distrust or issues with Russians, and you are 100% oblivious to the facts.

The problem with paying the miitary personnel wouldn't be a problem but for McConnell.

The problem with the CR wouldn't be a problem if Trump simply kept his word of just a week ago, stating that these one million people who did not make a choice about coming here were, indeed, Americans, and as such deserved full protection. Graham and Durbin came to an agreement in compromise.

The budget requires 60 Senate votes. The Repubs always knew they needed to compromise. The DACA issue would be the compromise. It was settled just over a week ago. Then Trump had his #hole meeting. He reversed his position over 36 hours, because geniuses Kelly and Miller talked to Trump in their usual racist ways "More Norweigens"

And thus here we are. Your guys could've said "Yes, pay the military no matter what" and decided not to. This whole thing wouldn't be a problem if they simply accepted people who came here when they were younger than 18 as kids, they have a clean record, and not part of a gang. They are, what Trump called, "Americans." But that rejection is the only thing making this even a problem.

Seems very straightforward which party is cynically twisting this matter to get everything they want, as usual.

It very much is, especially in the face of readily available factual information. Stop spreading ignorance.

1 million people who did not make a choice of coming here and did not make an effort to report that they are here illegally. They are dishonest people who are here illegally are these the kind of people you want living next to you?
at some point they realized that they were here Illegally and yet they did nothing to correct that situation,they continued to lie and deceive to reap the benefits of honest law abiding tax paying americans.

seriously, are those the kind of immigrants that you want in America? immigrants that are here illegally and lie and deceive? we have enough legal citizens that lie, deceive and scam.

anyone that willingly stays here knowing that that are here illegally and then lies and deceives o stay here are not the kind of people we need here we have enough homegrown douchbags that lie, deceive and break the laws.

poor little daca`s got brought here illegally and at some point they knew they were here illegally but they never picked up a phone and reported their parents for being illegal criminals, no they just kept on with the lies and deceit,there`s nothing innocent about daca`s they are criminal scumbags just like their parents are.

The only stupid thing here is the simple fact that it wasn't a negotiation. It was a government spending bill. Moron democrats had no right to treat it as a bargaining chip to get their damn way.
You are clearly not a veteran, or a patriot.

Imo, It could just be an exercise to see the reaction of military personnel to hearing that they aren't going to be paid. Kind of like the Hawaii fake missile warning on January 13th, which may have been done to see how civilians would react to an imminent missile threat. The US has been bankrupt since 1971, when we went off the Gold Standard. From then to now the dollar has lost @ 85% of its value. They can only keep up the hyperinflation of the dollar & the manipulation of markets for so long. Sooner or later the military won't be paid for real. Hopefully, cryptocurrencies will save the day, since they are the closest thing we have to a Gold Standard/free-market right now.

it won`t last beyond February first, congress knows that their re-election chances will drop to zero if any law abiding tax paying citizens suffer any hardship from their budget games
the one sure thing about politicians is that they care more about getting re-elected than they do about getting their way in congress.

I predict that this will be over by Friday if not sooner, I looked at my local democratic congressmen`s facebook page and he is getting reamed by 90% of the posters.By Wednesday when the democrat congress critters realize how bad they damaged their chances of re-election they will be bending over and accepting any deal the opposition is offering.


I am sure the republican reps are getting it just as bad. But the thing is, President Trump is used to taking the heat, now it is governments turn. lol.

democrats know this is their last chance of extending DACA they know that they don`t have a legal leg to stand on to support DACA in March when it expires, they are a fish out of water gasping for their last breath even if it means that they are destroying any chance of getting re-elected this year. they know that when the memo is released they will be lucky if they only not get re-elected and not go to prison, this is what a fish looks like when it`s dying. lot`s of gasping for air and flopping around on the beach.

Ha! Just like the thousand times Republicans voted to end Obamacare on CRs.

You're just wrong, but I understand that you don't care. I get it, truly.

It IS part of the immigration matters bc the CR and budget issues include the supposed wall and border security and DACA has been paired with that all along. As of 10 days ago, Republicans definitely knew it would be addressed, had no problem addressing it, Trump has no problem addressing it, it was supposed to be part of this bill.

You want to deport these people plain and simple.

Trump and McConnell have promised to "get it done before March" - which why in the world would Dems trust them since Trump promised lAST WEEK to do it in this bill????

You're just wrong, but you don't care. You want to deport people that came here at 4 years old and are now 28 and in jobs, married, have children who are American citizens, you want them deported and that's precisely the point.

No bother. Exposing the root of what is going on here is unbelievably easy. McConnell object to paying military personnel, Trump rejects HIMSELF as of a week ago, causing Graham to walk around as furious as anyone's ever seen him.

Carry on telling yourself ANYTHING you need to tell yourself, but the truth would be "I want to deport people who came here at 2 years old and are now 28, I don't care about these people, I want them deported to some country they don't know at all, they don't even speak spanish, I want these brown people gone gone gone."

That's all that's standing in the way, and that is a fact. Please don't tell us it will be done on its own before March, we're actually not children and know exactly what you're doing.

Hey is the day after the tomorrow mentioned in that video. Still no military pay funding. Guess McConnell was not willing to bring it up again..... So who is twisting everything in the face of readily available factual information and spreading ignorance?

Actually, the DID report themselves. K? That's what the hell makes them Dreamers. When the program began, they came out, reported themselves, they passed a background check on a promise.

YES, these ARE the type of people I want living next to me, just like any other damn group of people, there are good and bad.

They came at 2 years old, no fault of theirs, and since they knew NO OTHER PLACE ON EARTH, they chose not to get themselves deported by going to Immigration prior to DACA, then they DID come.

I am just positive that you being the law abiding citizen you are, would've been at Immigration at 18 reporting yourself ready for deportation.

You expect people to pick up the phone and report their parents?

You are clearly a hate-filled person who has zero empathy at all and that is how you can take such positions, you hate these brown dirty people who were here because big business begged them to come here so your hotel room cost $20 less.

You hate them, you hate them all. That is quite typical of a Trump supporter. Not all of them, but it is quite typical.

As of 10 days ago, Trump wholly disagreed with you. He said these people were Americans. But, being Trump, he knew that position would upset people like you and changed his mind.

It's fine. Truly.

There will always be hate-filled, white proud people like you, feeling superior in eveyr way, sure that you would definitely report your parents and line up to go to a country you've never known.

You're lying to yourself. You are full of hate. You are opposed to how Trump actually felt about it. You will not change your position. You voted for Trump because he told you that our hate was right and just, that brown people were douchebags, and you are absolutely thrilled that you get to call people like that out in the open.

It's the only reaosn you supported Trump. And yet boy do you folks get mad when someone points out how racist you are.

Buh bye, I don't speak to people like you. I have PLENTY OF GOOD REPUBLICAN friends with whom I can discuss many issues, they are fantastic people who care deeply about others.

Take care.

Martha McSally, an Arizona Republican, also introduced legislation that would continue to pay the military and those in the Department of Homeland Security performing national security duties. Her bill would also prohibit members of Congress from receiving a paycheck during the shutdown.


Is she up for reelection this year?

You know nothing.

We actually want it because it is the right thing to do on principle and we don't reflexively hate brown people.

That's the difference between us.

Oh, and just so you know, under George W Bush - who most decidedly did NOT hate Hispanics, Hispanics were very much split between Repub and Dem, in Florida they were MORE republican.

THEN the Republican party started hating these people openly, THEN Hispanics moved more left.

It's not for the votes, it's for doing something right that we feel is important. It's much easier to do when you don't have an inner fiber that hates other sets of people who are a different color than you.
