If Democrats cave on the wall, expect a headline like this in the near future:

Trump shuts government asking for repeal of Obamacare: Says, like Wall, it was his main campaign promise.

God, I hope Nancy can keep her troops in line.

I wanted a new speaker but I don't see her caving.

Not letting the State of the Union happen in her Chambers makes me believe in her.

I think she might actually win this.

In a month the debt ceiling has to be raised... She doesn't have to stand strong forever, things have to get done sooner or later.

Trump could let the debt ceiling be breached. Why wouldn’t he?

You can make people go a month without pay.

It's another thing to go on longer than months, it would collapse the USA.

I'm no Trump fan but he's not insane. He pushes boundaries that can be pushed, but he's not willing to collapse the USA and if he were we would have an overturned veto.

People call Trump a Russian agent, I think he's just greedy... Not insane or against America, just a really really bad guy.
