Shutdown fight turns ugly as both sides dig in

Source: The Hill

Republican and Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill lashed out at each other on Day One of the government shutdown Saturday, trading barbs and casting blame as a resolution to the funding impasse seemed nowhere in sight.

The rhetoric took a harsh turn, with Democrats complaining that President Trump is an erratic, unreliable negotiating partner and Republicans bemoaning Democrats’ intransigence over what the GOP sees as unreasonable immigration demands.

“Both sides are dug in. … I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re here tomorrow,” Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) told The Hill after huddling with fellow House Democrats in the basement of the Capitol.

Both chambers are in session Saturday — a rare weekend workday when many lawmakers were griping about risking vacation plans and overseas trips. But no votes are scheduled to reopen the government as the sides continue to air their grievances in press conferences and on cable news shows.

And then the "guy" that wants to take social programs from human beings and give there money to defense, and pay off a 1.5 trillion debt said this:

"Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), meanwhile, placed blame for the shutdown solely at the feet of Senate Democrats: “One party in one house of this Congress is deliberately holding this government hostage.”


No Paul "ayn rand" Ryan your party has been holding the peoples Congress hostage since you and your right wing fascist party came into power and into government with your criminal enterprise, you own this asshole, you passed your legislation with 230 votes, let me remind you with 230 votes, and the sexual predator owns you and your fascist right wing hate and bigot party---------------so fuck you

1. It has to be considered that maybe the shutdown will be longer than one week-end,

one week, perhaps longer than 10 days.

2. McConnell held us hostage over many things, and Garland for 10 months

Why are we supposed to be so cooperative now?

Chuck Schumer offered deals ... no compromise from the other side

GOP majority! Should deal to move legislation.

Mitch McConnell is the real obstructionist

4. And if they want to say the big bad Democrats are to blame...

how well does that reflect that they can't stop them when they hold all three branches?

3. The longer this goes, the worse it's going to look for Republicans

They control all three branches. The longer this lasts, the worst the court of public opinion is going to be for them.

6. EXACTLY THIS

If the Democrats are able to shut down a government the Republicants control fully, they really aren't very good at governing and doing their jobs, are they?

5. This smells like

it's gonna be a long one.

The blame is squarely on dump's obese shoulders. He agreed to a bipartisan immigration deal with Graham and Durbin, then reneged after kelly and the other hard-right kooks in the White House got hold of him. Of course, they didn't have to do much persuading since they were playing to his innate racism and desire to coddle the loony racist base.
