Am I the only one around here who hates that the parties seem to be treating this as a competition?
So out of curiosity how much do they pay you? I've seen you on the front page of this sub 6 times so far with low quality anti Trump memes, and i'm thinking, nobody except some old person who doesn't know what memes are would think these are funny, but they also wouldn't know how to make them. So the only thing I can think of is you're being payed by someone to make and post memes, and you don't put too much effort into it because they won't know the difference.
Is this the same poll that said Hillary had a 90% chance of winning?
Newsflash: the leftist media lies...about polls too.
The sooner you’re aware, the more you’ll learn
Um no, no it isn't.
Democrats didn't want to compromise on the DACA bills, so they decided not to vote for the CR.
So in essence, Trump said:
"I'm willing to give all the DACA folks full amnesty, but you have to fund the wall, end chain migration and end the immigrant lottery system." Then the bill the "bi-partisan" committee brought him was fuck all. It would actually INCREASE chain migration, barely fund the wall and EXPAND the lottery. So everything he said he would agree to, they just decided to ignore and it got properly bitch slapped down by the President. Then for the last week, all we heard about was the "shithole" comments, not the fact Trump was willing to give Democrats what they've actually wanted all along, but haven't been able to get done and they totally shit the bed.
If you want to place blame, place blame on the Democrats for not compromising to take the deal Trump offered them. It was a fair deal, and instead, they wanted to gain political points for the midterms and then blame the Republicans because they "own the whole government" which is true, but they still need Democrats votes to pass the CR, which was their play from the beginning. Block the CR and then try and pass a fuck all immigration bill the president will never sign.
Well played by Democrats. However, when you've seen this movie before, it's kind of obvious what they did.
The fact is they could have passed a clean continuing resolution to avoid a shutdown and kept negotiating. There was nothing that forced this shutdown except that the GOP wanted it.
[Here is the tape of the motions on the Senate floor attempting to avoid the shutdown.](https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4710181/senator-mcconnell-objects-military-pay-protection
Watch it for yourself. Notice the Democrats proposed exempting military pay from the effects of the shutdown and McConnell blocked it. Notice the Democrats proposed not shutting down but McConnell blocked their efforts, not once but twice.
Now Trump, Ryan and the rest of the GOP are claiming it is the Democrats who are holding the military pay hostage - which is a damn lie - and that the Democrats forced a shutdown - another damn lie.
**There was nothing forcing this shutdown except that the GOP wanted it.**
Democrats literally just voted down CHIP (child health care) funding for Americans and legal immigrants to go to bat for illegal aliens over DACA.
This backfired mightily on the OP.
Congrats to the new Democrat majority congress that will commence in 348 days.
Boils down to:
democrats wanting to waste taxpayer dollars on welfare for criminals I mean illegal migrants.
republicans want to waste taxpayer money on a wall and some other shit
All in all if the government is shut down it is spending less of my paycheck. Sounds good to me.
100% the fault of the Democratic traitors.
The media ALWAYS blames the GOP, even when it is the Dems. People believe what they hear and parrot it , even when its wrong.
