House Democrats are aiming to finalize all the funding measures at once, waiting for all the bills grouped into minibus packages to be agreed upon before sending them to the White House. That strategy would increase the odds of a complete government shutdown instead of a partial one if no overall agreement is reached on spending legislation.

When the previous partial shutdown began, five of the 12 annual bills had already been signed into law, meaning several federal agencies, including the Defense Department, were unaffected.

“Both parties, however, dislike the prospect of governing on a continuing resolution”

Bullshit. Any opportunity they can take to shirk their responsibilities, congress will take.

So the Democrats are going to go on record that they would rather shut down the government than allow the President to stop the invasion by illegal aliens. Who do the Democrats represent, American citizens or foreigners? And is not giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States treason?

“Trump’s Wall”

Notice the attempt to cast this as “his” wall; coupled with other characterizations as this is some sort of ego driven sign of excess or narcissistic behavior. See what they’re doing?

Never mind the American people have been literally screaming for almost FIFTY (50) YEARS for government to secure the borders, enforce the laws at every level, local, state and federal. THAT IS THEIR JOB. They took an oath to do this, and other things. In literal fact, this is one of the very few responsibilities that government has.

If they don’t like it, then they need to find another line of work. Same thing with the media. It’s just contrived and cultivated, leaned failure theater all the way down. We’re just supposed to become inured to “open borders” and accept that we, the people, have no say or any influence on any of this stuff. It’s like the weather - people complain, but whatta ya gonna do? This is the natural order of things, and you better get used to it, comrade.

Congress promised to secure the border in 1986 in exchange for amnesty.

We’re still waiting.......

If the Democrats are creating government shutdowns either full or partial over the wall in 2020 they may as well just hand the Republicans a house majority.

Liberals tax and spend.

Conservatives cut taxes and spend.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that;^)

This illustrates the reality that I wrote about here:

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/09/the_suicide_of_the_house_is_complete.html

By NOT doing its constitutional fiscal/budgetary duty, the House has made itself utterly irrelevant. Once it gave in to Continuing Resolutions, the House had no real power left. It allowed both Bush and Zero to get away with policies that should have been voted on (”declaration of war,” a proper legislative path to Obamacare-—which would have failed).

Since now all they can do is obstruct and investigate, they have no power at all. No wonder so many Rs are retiring.

I used to be a fed contractor. CRs totally F up any sort of planning you might have done. My fed (Moron) sponsors would totally jump on our a$$es for not getting our projects done on time when we received no $s. Since we had no funding I had to find work for all my people and then redirect them again when some small chunk of funding came in, then do it all again when that ran out. The only people that were bigger a$$holes are the idiots in congress.

[[[Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), the top appropriator in the Senate, said it’s possible Congress will spend the next fiscal year passing several stopgap bills, known as continuing resolutions (CRs).]]]

Like they have been doing for the last 20+ years.

Partner, psst, Pelousy will lose is no surprise to all Freepers who follow politics but Pelousy will not be our Speaker at the next session of Congress.

She is not going to agree with the Rat Congress to spend some $$$ on a wall and she will go down in history as the worst of the worst People's Congress Speakers of all time.
