The Democrats won’t vote for a Republican bill.

The CR passed unanimously in the senate and would have passed easily in the house.

The Senate unanimously approved the legislation Wednesday.
Trump is pushing for 'steel slats or a wall' as he meets with GOP House members

The president originally said he would sign it. It doesn’t get much more bipartisan than that.

But then he backed out. He is the one who fucked it up. He also fucked in the past agreements that the senate had made that included funding for his wall in exchange for DACA. He could have had this fight weeks ago. But no.

Why no would anyone take his word on any new agreement? Why now would the democrats agree to vote for a “republican bill” when they are taking the house in a week?

What incentive has the WH given the democrats to sign a bill? What compromise are they offering? What are they offering them in exchange for the wall?

Trump thinks he can have it his way or the highway. That’s not how it works. Especially since the democrats will be in control of the house.

Both sides would rather fight with the other side, than to do their jobs representing the American people.

Their priority is power and money, and serving the people they are generously paid to represent is way down on the list...
If they were serving the american people, wed have single payer health insurance.

trump supporters are to die for. The man tells them what he's going to do. He tells them he's not going to blame dems He does what he said he was going to do. Blames dems. Then, his supporters go along with it and start blaming the dems too. Is there even a word that describes that?
pixilated!
