Memes are groovy.

"Well who's fault is it anyway?"

Bigly. Proudly.


Not actually true. If it made it to Trump and he did not let it pass, yes, Trump would own it. But it didn't make it out of the Senate. That puts the blame square on the Senate's shoulders. Now I wonder if Chuck will take the blame.

For it to be Trumps Fault he would have to have something in front of him to sign.

Seems civics is so hard for some people.
Damn common core.

That isn't how it works. It has to pass the House the same way it passed the Senate.

Or else it goes back to the Senate.

It's still the president's ball. One he has claimed, in public, on tape.

What?
The president said he would not sign a bill which did not include $5 billion for his wall. So the House added $5 billion for his wall. The Senate won't pass that bill.

The president's single condition (the wall) is what is killing the CR. The president owns the shutdown, as he bigly proclaimed.

So? Schumer said he would not pass it in the senate if the Wall was funded. It has to make it past Schumer before it gets to Trump. I
We cannot know whether he would have signed the CR. It did not pass the House. He might have signed it. Right now both plans are in the House and Senate and going nowhere. It has to pass them first. It is not even making it to Trump for it to be his fault.

My amigos in gov want 10 days off, with reimbursement after that holiday vacation. McConnell assured them today that they'd get it. Lot of happy Federal Workers tonight!

Perhaps, or perhaps it's simply reflective of the content matter.

Schumer cannot cause a bill to pass or fail. Nor can he call for a vote.


We cannot know whether he would have signed the CR.
This is true. He does bluster. He blustered before the nation saying that he would be proud to shut down the government if the CR did not fund his wall. Silly I suppose, to believe what the president says to the nation as whole.

And never got the chance. The CR funded the wall and couldn't pass the Senate.

Maybe you should be angry with the House?

The only thing they fear now is when people realize many government "workers" are not as "essential" as we are led to believe !!

The exposure will do some good like last time.

I'm sure they have their "sick" and "vacation" time already applied for and approved.

Yes. And he will own it. Just like he said he would. IF he has to Veto it. Has he vetoes it yet?

Remember when Pelosi tried to say that she could get it passed through the House, but only without funding for a wall, and Trump replied I could get it through the House in 2 seconds, and Pelosi went into some kind of conniption fit and said that he couldn't. Well guess what? He did.
