Dims Get Rolled As Usual

The Dims Get Rolled, but not Sharpened.

Well, that didn’t take long.

Everything we noted in the first post of the morning stands.

    You should play that gif backwards, ’cause the Dims NEVER seem to get any sharper.

    It looks like their deal will get CHIP funded for the next six years, so it’s not a total cave-in

    Well, it may not be the optics we wanted, but some good comes of it. CHIP got a six year extension and the Republicans can’t hold that hostage. And the government offices are up again. I live in an Air Force Base city and a shutdown is terrible news for the local economy here and across the country.

    And in three weeks, if McConnell and the other racists deny the opportunity to vote on DACA, we have the proof that they are, on paper and on record, liars AND racists.

    Small wins are still wins.

    The only way DACA gets fixed is of it’s tacked onto a “must pass” bill. DACA on its own won’t pass the friggin’ House.

    From dKos…
    “White House, McConnell rule out bipartisan immigration work, set up next Trump Shutdown.”

    “He also said this: “We think that leader McConnell is going to bring forward something that the president can sign. The Graham/Durbin proposal is not a proposal the president can sign.” All that bipartisan negotiating that Sens. Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin have been working on, the basis of the agreement Democrats made to go ahead and let this stop-gap bill pass? The White House is already ruling it out.”

    • honestly what the WH says today holds no predictive power over what they’ll say tomorrow. Hell, it wont predict five minutes into the future.

        Yes. Negotiating with terrorists to lower the gun doesn’t mean the hostages are safe.

        It means you don’t know where the gun is pointed.

    What I don’t understand is why when the government shuts down it only partially shuts down. The terms of the shutdown are largely under the control of the Administration., who has set up to close down as little as possible, thus reducing it’s impact. When the Administration refuses to bargain in good faith by February 8 (shocking! How could that happen!) lets make the shutdown a shutdown. No bonds sold, no checks (or direct deposits) made, no taxes collected. Uniformed military on duty as well as security guards and rent a cops to make sure no foreign state or terrorists take over federal property (like maybe a wildlife refuge, arsenal, or agricultural extension service office) but other than that nothing. It will be over in 8 hours, max, and all the bozos who voted for it can be identified for booting out of office in November. Enough of this brinksmanship BS.
