Government Shut Down Shuffle

A couple days ago, Our Grand Nagus signed a bill ending the government shutdown--until 8 February.

The critical issue was:  Democrats wanted to keep our borders open to illegal immigrants...

...while Trump was willing to deal--if Democrats approve of building The Wall along the US-Mexican Border.

The Dems refused, but Chuck Schumer shut down the government for no reason.

But of course, people like former DNC Chair tried putting a spin on why they support illegal aliens over American citizens.

It appears the Democrats caved simply because they felt--quite rightly--that public opinion was turning against them.  Although many aren't happy with Schumer's cave-in.

Now the Republicans aren't blameless in all this mess either.

They've had a majority in both Houses of Congress since the 2016 Election--and they're still having trouble, or are reluctant to fulfill their collective campaign promises.  Like repealing Obamacare.

We'll see if a permanent-ish budget bill is passed more smoothly in a couple of weeks.

Somehow, I doubt it.
