Will Democrats shut down the Government over "The Wall"



Democrats pilloried Republicans for irresponsibly shutting down the government when Barack Obama was president, but as a minority party struggling to show resistance in the era of President Trump, they are now ready to let the lights of government go dark.

A group of prominent Senate Democrats on Monday raised the specter of a shutdown over the funding of President Trump’s proposed wall along the border with Mexico.

Let's start with the reality. It really doesn't matter if the President is Democrat or Republican or if Congress is Democrat or Republican... the media will ultimately attempt to blame Republicans for any Government shut down. The Democrats always take comfort in the fact that the media will explicitly support them pretty much regardless of what they do. They could propose the torture of every living puppy in America, and the media would declare it to be a good thing.

The problem is that even with the support of the MSM... it's unlikely that most voters will take their side on this one. Even if you are not a big supporter of "The Wall" you have to concede that this was a major campaign promise, and campaign promises are occasionally (albeit rarely) kept. More-over, they hypocrisy is something that even the media cannot spin their way out of.

Congratulations to Rachel Maddow for that bombshell report that Donald Trump paid his taxes.

That's the sort of hard-hitting journalism you only see at MSNBC.

KD said...

It was so funny to read the what was happening to her on twitter, TRUMP TEAM scooped her during her program, mocking her as did a lot of other people.

So Hillary and the HillaryPRess lied.


He paid like 38 Million in one year in Taxes.

KD, hillary Lied said...

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow teed up a major scoop about President Donald Trump's taxes on Tuesday night -- only to end up disappointing many in the political-media establishment with a report that was widely characterized as overhyped.

The big reveal, which Maddow did not get to until after a lengthy monologue and commercial break, showed that in 2005 Trump paid $38 million in federal income taxes on a reported income of $150 million." CNN Source


It matters not to anyone , but, really $38 million in taxes, that is just punishing achievement.

KD, said...

Here is never will be president Hillary Clintons big LIE.


"... maybe he doesn’t want the American people, all of you watching tonight, to know that he’s paid nothing in federal taxes." She should be wearing Orange

KD, UAW Loves Trump said...


The beginning of the end for the Yellen Fed?


By April, three key governor positions at the Fed will be open, Yellen's term ends in January, and the Fed's No. 2, Stanley Fischer's, ends in June 2018.

All positions must be appointed by Trump, who was heavily critical of Yellen during the campaign. He will be able to quickly reshape the Fed's leadership in the coming months.

She is in her bunker , lobbing grenades and setting landmines in the night all to slow the Trump Effect full speed ahead Job Creating Machine.

Her days are numbered, but, she will do the Maximum damage she can before leaving.

Remember she never raised the rates during Obama's term, not until Hillary is spectacularly failed and Trump WON.

More great news,,,,, Today Trump will be IN Michigan speaking with UAW Memebership the rank and files guys and will give them great news, the boot of Obama is coming off of their throats as President Trump "re-visits" CAFE Standards.

And you can concentrate on drinking. BTW.,, there is one tax return, which shows favorably that he did pay a fair share....let's see the rest especially the ones that were affected by his billion dollar loss carry forward. But pauline will continue acting like the child he is and not post a single cogent thought. Typical for drunk insurance salesman who think they have talent. Maybe we can have a recap of all his failed predictions on the ACA as his party squirms to write their own bill after trying to repeal it for the last 6 years

LOLOLOLOL!!! Loretta wants to practice flute playing and needs a volunteer since you probably get nothing at home.

Increasingly Wary Senators Warn Bill Won’t Pass Without Changes

The problems lawmakers have with the legislation include the potential loss of insurance coverage, changes to Medicaid, the trajectory of premium prices and the bill’s impact on costs paid by older, low-income and rural Americans.

The New York Times: G.O.P. Senators Suggest Changes For Health Care Bill Offered By House
A day after a harsh judgment by the Congressional Budget Office on the House plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act, nervous Senate Republicans on Tuesday suggested changes to the bill. They told Trump administration officials — including the health secretary, Tom Price — that they wanted to see lower insurance costs for poorer, older Americans and an increase in funding for states with high populations of hard-to-insure people. (Steinhauer and Kaplan, 3/14)

The Wall Street Journal: GOP Senators Say House Health Bill Won’t Pass Without Changes
Republican senators, alarmed by a nonpartisan report showing millions would lose insurance under the GOP health-care plan, warned Tuesday that the bill wouldn’t become law without fundamental changes. At least a dozen Republican senators, including some who had previously kept a low profile in the health debate, made clear they had concerns over the bill’s policy proposals, complicating House leaders’ hopes that the bill’s momentum would overpower internal GOP infighting over legislative details. (Peterson and Hackman and Radnofsky, 3/14)

Reuters: Republicans Weigh Health Bill Changes As Doubts Mount
The White House and congressional leaders said on Tuesday they were weighing changes to their plan to dismantle the Obamacare health law as Republicans' questions mounted following an estimate that it would cause 14 million Americans to lose insurance next year.Press Secretary Sean Spicer said White House officials and leaders in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives were considering whether to tweak their bill, which faces growing doubts within party ranks. (Heavey and Cornwell, 3/14)

The Hill: Pressure Mounts For Changes To ObamaCare Bill
Yet any changes to the bill could further alienate moderate members who are worried about lost coverage and price spikes for lower-income and older people. Their fears were heightened by a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report, released Monday, that found the bill could result in 24 million people becoming uninsured over the next decade. (Sullivan, Hellmann and Wong, 3/14)

The Associated Press: Ryan’s Gambit: Second Health Care Bill To Woo The Reluctant
House Republicans are working on a companion to their bill replacing “Obamacare,” a legislative second act that would ease cross-state sale of health insurance and limit jury awards for pain and suffering in malpractice lawsuits. The problem: the so-called “sidecar” bill lacks the votes in the Senate. (Alonso-Zaldivar and Fram, 3/15)

The Hill: Ryan: Trump And I Working To 'Stick The Landing' On Healthcare Plan
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Tuesday he had talked with President Trump about ensuring Republicans can "sick the landing" on their ObamaCare repeal-and-replacement proposal, the American Health Care Act. “We basically just talked about how we are executing, getting this done. We talked about dividing up labor, who does what and how do we make sure we just basically stick the landing and get it done,” Ryan told Fox News's Martha MacCallum of his Tuesday call with Trump. (Beavers, 3/14)

Dayum impressive post again, pauline. Pretty early to be hitting the juice. Sales must really suck since you have time to post your drivel instead of wasting your time selling a product that everyone should have.....I really am enamored with your ability to conjugate the word fuck into so many different forms. Must have learned that at UGA, the party school. LOL

Why not? Shutting down the government is a worthy goal in itself to your Republicans. Defaulting on the debt, even better. So how is this even a threat to Trump's Wall?
