Democrats vow government shutdown over Trump border wall

Senate Democrats said Monday that they will block any spending bill that includes money for President Trump’s border wall, even if it leads to a government shutdown, saying it’s up to Republicans to resist touchy issues in the looming spending debate.

In a letter led by Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, top Democrats also said they will insist that bills allow Planned Parenthood to collect taxpayer money.

But though Democrats are in the minority and would have to filibuster to block the bills, they insisted it’s Republicans who will be blamed for a government shutdown.

“If Republicans insist on inserting poison pill riders such as defunding Planned Parenthood, building a border wall, or starting a deportation force, they will be shutting down the government and delivering a severe blow to our economy,” the Democrats said in a letter to top Republicans.

    Go ahead, make yourselves more unpopular, no big deal. While you are at it take a look at the people in your party not winning elections out there cause they are supporting refugees. Do us a favor and show us more of your ass. We love it. Bunch of dingbat, ratshit, crazy squirrels eating sour berries and running a muck.

    Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans need to make sure that the Democrats will get the blame for any government shutdown.

    I would suggest that a debt limit extension go on through Congress now. Once the Democrats begin their delay tactics, President Trump should use the looming debt ceiling as justification to issue an emergency executive order halting government payments to every Democrat pet project immediately.

    At the same time Chuck Schumer is filibustering the bill he will talk about America defaulting on its debts. That isn’t true. The failure to raise the debt limit means we will be reduced to spending what comes in. President Trump can use the power of the purse strings to begin making cuts. Planned Parenthood, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and a whole host of government grants studying things like the mating habits of transgender brown mice should be the first casualties. Amtrak could be placed on the auction block along with lot of the federal owned land.

    We are approaching the point where President Trump is going to need to play hard ball. The sooner Trump smacks Chucky down the sooner our nation can move toward being great again.

    Let them. The consequences are on them….. The wall is for the security of our country. If they want to shut down the whole country to undermine protecting its citizens, then, let them do it. They are the ones who come out as the villains .

  • Janis says:

    OOOOO Wow, the illegals, who you claim do not vote, will be so thankful and impressed. The rest of us, not so much.

  • Pete says:

    The future of the democratic party voter base is irreversibly tied to the non citizens ability to cast votes in densely populated locations. The decades ago democratic voter base of working class citizens has, due to neglect and outright hostility from the party leadership, all but disappeared & for all intents and purposes is not recoverable. Without the illegals along with federally funded special interest groups like Planned Parenthood as a voter base, long term survivable of the party is not likely.

  • Karll says:

    If they are successful, we’ll see if schumer gets even 1% of the blame
    that Cruz got over the last “shutdown”. I also don’t think Trump would
    be so petty as to close open air memorial sites as barry did.

  • outlawdealer says:

    The same type of compromise they have been offering for over 8 years now. “My way or the highway” I guess this is another word that libtard dumbocrats do not understand.

    WHY DO YOU THINK ANYTHING OBAMA HAS DONE IS LEGAL, HE HAS CONFESSED TO BEING A MUSLIM ON NATION WIDE TV. EVERYTHING HE HAS SIGNED, OR ORDERED IN 8 YEARS IS ILLEGAL.

    WHY DID HILLIARY HAVE A MUSLIM FROM A RADICAL FAMILY AS HER TOP AIDE FOR 10 YEARS, HUMA COULD BE A PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS TO THE MUSLIM WORLD.

    WHY HAS OBAMA SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH MUSLIMS ANOTHER PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS. HE HAS DECLARED HIMSELF A MUSLIM ON NATIONWIDE TV.

    WHY DOES THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA SAY HE IS NOT A MUSLIM, WHEN I HAVE A LIST OF WHERE 34 TIMES HE HAS EITHER HELPED THEM OR SAID HE WAS ONE.

    WHY GET MAD AT PUTIN, HE SAID THAT THERE WAS NO PLACE IN RUSSIA FOR ANYONE THAT WOULD NOT FOLLOW THEIR LAW AND SPEAK THEIR LANGUAGE, THEY WOULD HAVE TO GO TO A COUNTRY THAT DID.

    WHY HAS HILLIARY, OBAMA, KERRY AND THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO HELP THE RADICAL MUSLIMS.

    WHY ALLOW ILLEGALS TO FLOOD OUR COUNTRY WHEN THEY COST MORE PER YEAR THAN THE IRAQ WAR.

    WHY SEND BILLIONS TO MUSLIM COUNTRIES TRYING TO KILL US.

    WHY DONT THE BIASED MEDIA REPORT ALL THIS.

    YOU SAY THAT A MUSLIM TRY AT A TAKEOVER IS IMPOSSIBLE, I CAN TAKE 100 WELL ARMED PEOPLE AND TAKE ANY BASE IN 1 HOUR, OUR TROOPS ARE NOT ARMED.

    BETTER COAT ALL YOU AMMO WITH PIGS BLOOD OR GREASE, LET THE WORLD KNOW YOU ARE DOING SO.

    TRUMP IS NOW THE PRESIDENT, SO, GET ON BOARD AND HELP HIM STRAIGHTEN THIS MESS OUT. PRAY FOR HIS PROTECTION EACH DAY.

    I HAVE A LOT MORE FACTS IF ANYONE WANTS THEM. SHARE THIS.
