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.
The clocks are tiking and Democrats are failing.

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.

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.

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?
