Our government is a fricken joke.
"The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on a government appropriations bill Thursday evening and, with a day until the vote, lawmakers still have not received the text of the legislation"
"No one has seen the final wording of a long and complicated bill we will be expected to vote on tomorrow evening,” Republican Maryland Rep. Andy Harris told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “That’s no way to run a legislature.”
How can anyone be expected to vote on a bill with no clue what's inside?
This is a childish move in my opinion.
"the legislation is expected to be finalized Wednesday night, giving members of Congress less than 24 hours to read what they are voting on. A senior House Republican source confirmed to TheDCNF that no Republican lawmakers have received a copy of the legislation or seen any text as of Wednesday afternoon."
Washington needs an enema....
Several in fact..
A Thursday vote to keep a Friday shutdown from happening?
I can hear Pelosi now.
"The GOP had a bill to avoid the shutdown and they didn't care enough about the American people to stop the pain..."

I would expect Trump to not sign the bill since he already went through this once and said he wouldn't sign another bill last minute again. This shutdown will be on the house of representatives, which is currently ran by the Democrats.
