Of course they will not pass a real budget. That would require the Congress critters to go on record!

this Trench warfare could be the norm for 2018. Probably need to pass bills to pay troops and keep parks open. In the long run, I think the GOP wins on this, but I don’t doubt the RATs could drag this out for months.

Yup, troops ‘n parks ‘n such.

Issue script, anyone who does not remain at their posts and working receive NO BACK PAY when it’s all over!

Only pay for service rendered....no vacation for gov workers who sit home. Show up and hope to be paid when the dems regain their senses.

This is about the mid terms in November. The Dems think they can take the Senate.

I believe the Dems are sorely mistaken.

The Dems are about to get handed more of what they got in Nov. 2016.

Trump is playing the MSM like a fiddle and beating the Dems like a drum as they still cannot get over the fact that they have lost the power to lead and erroneously refuse to participate in government.

If the open border asshats want to shutdown the government over ILLEGAL AILENS, Trump should accommodate them by vetoing every funding bill that includes anything on DACA!

After it dies in the Senate, the hacks in the conference committee will add all the bad parts the Senate wants, remove all the parts the People want, and then pass it in both houses with enough Dems to make it work.

Yeah, but...

It’s not a good “optic” for the Dems to shut the government down to help non-Americans.
Wouldn’t surprise me to see a very short shutdown. followed by a DACA bill more to Trump’s liking.

That’s the thing about a Shutdown - judge orders DACA to continue but Trump can refuse to process any applications.
