Its right out of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol: The ghost of Chuck Schumer past issuing a dire warning to todays Senate minority leader.
Back in 2013, recall, a GOP effort to defund ObamaCare in a federal spending bill led to a 16-day shutdown of the federal government. Democrats were irate (as they always are when Republicans advance their policies), and none more so than Schumer, who explained how his party was above the fray.
You know, he said on ABCs This Week, we could do the same thing on immigration reform. We believe strongly in immigration reform. We could say, Were shutting down the government, were not gonna raise the debt ceiling, until you pass immigration reform.
But, he added ominously, it would be government chaos.
Well, guess what: Its 2017, and Chuck Schumer is now threatening to shut down the federal government over, among other issues, immigration reform.

He can do what he wants but he has neither house nor senate. Take a month or two off why don’t you
That’s because he knows if the Demoncrats shut down the government the lamestream media will claim the Republicans caused it.
The crap they spew about a 6 day shut down costing umpteen billion dollars is nothing more than media bullshit (to coin a CNN talking head comment).
The left seems to be going more and more berserk.
Today, they’ve turned it up to 11. I suppose tomorrow they’ll increase it to 12.
This is exactly what is recognized as a terrorist tactic. Schumer the Terrorist.
Do it right this time - shut it all down, not just the 13% that encompass things that make doleful media headlines, like National Parks.
Trump should signal that any government shutdowns in the future will cause government workers to be put off work without pay and without recompense/back payment when the shut down is over. Unexpected “time off” with pay for non-essential personnel would immediately become a thing of the past.
Couple that with no one in congress goes anywhere until a balanced budget is passed and we've got a good start.
We are having chaos near Kansas city, Ks as an 8 alarm fire is not under control and has burned an apartment complex and at least 12 private homes.
Chuck’s dream come true.
I volunteer to help with the shutdown.
Ohhh! That's so good.
Start with the EPA. Last shutdown we learned that we learned some 90% plus of their employees were non-essential.
Live in the D.C. area. The people I know who work for Feds love shutdowns...extra paid vaca. And you and I have to pay for it.
Oh please Mr Chuck, shut it down. Ninety days minimum. Lets just watch the sky fall /s. The debt ceiling goes up no further. A first reality check. Win lose or draw it needs to happen, and the wins need to continue. Who cares who gets the blame as long as we get headed in the right direction.
Please shut down all government in WDC. However, don’t back the slackers when they return...like these idiot pols ALWAYS do. I’m tired of paying the fed losers for more vacay.
Toss this sack of infection into jail, preferably in the same cell with some badasses.
Libtards like him keep feeding and breeding welfare cases for multiple generations, throwing our money down an endless and useless drain. He is an out and out traitor, working against the security of America’s citizens.
