Axios has a good summary of the shutdown scene. Like I said: Republicans can't govern.

This is an excellent assessment (no paywall) that points out both Dems and Republicans to watch on how the votes are developing. It changes from minute to minute as we approach tomorrow night's deadline.

How can you have a government shutdown when one party controls both Congress and the White House? If it happens, it will be because Republicans couldn't keep key factions of their party happy or curry favor with Democrats over immigration not to mention tweets undermining the negotiations from President Trump himself.

Here's why the government could shut down

Solon - did you know that when you lower yourself to insults and childish name calling - you expose your intellectual  immaturity. But that's the sign of a true liberal  " I CAN'T HAVE MY WAY! "

Trump is not a racist and the more the liberal left pushes this lie - the more the american people are seeing the democrats for what they are. Liars and thieves - but we would prefer you call them politicians.

UVA is on the road at Georgia Tech tonight and at Wake on Sunday. Tech is 3-1 in the ACC and 3rd in the league so this is a huge challenge. Wake is near the bottom, so watch out for overconfidence. Two victories in away games would be a display of unexpected dominance by a team that was unranked at the beginning of the season and picked to finish 6th in the league.

Rasmussen, a Republican-leaning polling organization has revealed a surprising result given their predilections.

Quote
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the president is a racist. Forty-three percent (43%) disagree

Is Trump A Racist?

You can fool some of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time. American voters are at last figuring out who this creep really is.

Paul Ryan tried to smooth over the president's tweet that objected to the presence of CHIP in the temporary funding bill. Too bad for him, he has other problems to deal with. As I have repeatedly pointed out, the Freedom Caucus is always the obstacle and an important reason the Republicans are incapable of governance.

Quote
In the House, Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) left an evening meeting with Chief Deputy Whip Patrick T. McHenry (R-N.C.) saying that he had not been won over and that the short-term spending bill expected to come to the floor on Thursday remained short of votes.

Good for Kyle!

I have some mutual friends with Kyle McDaniel, but havent had the pleasure to meet him yet but he was known to be rising up the ranks.

That is a principled stance that he has taken. Thats commendable!

When seniors start to die due to their social security checks and medicaid being stopped due to the federal government shutdown and children start to die because they will not get their free meals from the federal government due to the government shutdown, everyone can simply blame the Democrats because they are willing to shutdown the federal government because they want amnesty for all illegals in this country and they do not want border security for this country.

Shame!  As for the No Sense poster on the forum, it takes 60 votes in the Senate to pass a spending Bill.  You failed your civics class!  Chuck U. Shumer has said he would filibuster any spending bill that does not include a fix for DACA (amnesty).

And the Republicans have the majority(s). And some of their own don't want to vote in lockstep with their leader. Because some of them, have a spine. Unlike, someone who posts as a puppet where his spine is under someone else's control.

Someone start an immigration thread.

Unless he trumps a Trump.
