US Government Shutdown Watch: 2018 Edition. More Bricks in the Wall?


#2625

There won’t be a vote unless McConnell is one.


#2626

22 Republicans can change that. Heck, 6 of them could.


#2627

I do tend to think that enough Republicans in Congress aren’t crazy enough to fuck with the debt limit. The Freedom Caucus is out of the picture there.


#2628

Oh, I think they’re willing to fuck with it, just not to the point of default.


#2629

This forum really needs likes.


#2630

Are Senate Republicans now more scared of another shutdown than of Trump?


#2631

Which thread do I follow for the SOTU which I will not be watching?


#2632

Sit on the toilet and unspool your toilet paper onto the ground, and watch that. I don’t think any of us here can stand to watch the bloated turd.

(Secretly I have the same question as you.) :)

p.s. Can’t wait for Stacey Abrams’s speech, though!

And the thread is off to a rip-roaring start.


#2634

“Nope.” made me lol and have to explain myself.


#2635

Okay and now you’ve edited your post and made me look like a weirdo.

“I see Nopes.”


#2636

Yea, I accidentally grabbed the second post, haha.


#2637

Both Shelby ® and Schumer (D) sounding very upbeat this afternoon about border negotiations and getting a budget passed. Sounds like actual progress being made, and Trump so far seems willing to sign off on whatever compromise they come up with.

*He was willing to sign off on their compromise on December 19th, too, so…


#2638

Quick, everyone turn to Fox News to see if some talking head tells him not to compromise.


#2639

Pretty much.


#2640

If? Haha. Of course they’re saying not to compromise. Compromise is LOSING.


#2641

The learning of lessons appears to be going slowly.


#2642

Look, last time the public blamed the GOP, this time they surely will blame the other side right?


#2643

What does McConnell have to say about the third kick of a mule?


#2644

I really don’t see what Trump’s problem is with the wall. He said Mexico was going to pay for it. Bastard refuses to eat his own words.
