Democrats plan to grind Senate to a halt over government shutdown

January 8, 2019

  According to this story Senate Democrats have a new plan to force the President to end the shutdown. They will grind the Senate to a halt and will not allow a vote on any of Donald Trump’s agenda until the so-called shutdown is over. Here is more:

Senate Democrats are playing hardball as they try to strong-arm Republicans to buck President Trump and bring up legislation to end the partial government shutdown.

A growing number of Senate Democrats, backed by progressive outside groups, are calling on the caucus to filibuster any legislation until Republicans give a vote to a House-passed package to fully reopen the government.

Senate Democrats are in the minority, but if they are able to unite 41 of their 47 members behind the strategy they can grind the Senate to a standstill in an effort to ratchet up pressure on Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who has refused to take up any government funding bill not supported by the president.

 My thinking on this is simple. So what?

 With the Democrats in control of the House no Republican approved legislation is going to get passed by the House even if it is passed by the Senate, so why cave in to the party which promised to oppose Donald Trump from before he was even sworn in? If you do cave in the only thing you will have is no wall and a Congress which will not pass any of your agenda anyway.

    This is not going to end well. I cannot figure out why on earth the GOP didn’t do this when they had both houses. Letting the Dems go on record of blocking everything would have set us up perfectly.

      If you figure out why the Republicans didn’t do this when they were in control please let me know because I cannot figure it out either!
