Lets stay in the present<quoted text>
Just answer this question. If it's possible you can give a thoughtful answer, I mean.
Would you expect Democrats to sit quietly by and cave in to Republicans' demands if they refused to negotiate a law passed strictly on a Republican partisan vote of which the majority were and still are against and with unintended unfavorable consequences?
You do know Democrats have shutdown the government numerous times in the past and negotiations on the part of Republicans ended them?
Republicans would have never excluded Democrats from having any input or tweaking a law of this magnitude by refusing to negotiate in the first place. And Republicans would have never passed a law of this magnitude on a strictly partisan vote without one Democrat on board.
I know that was a lot to digest but just try and answer the first question.
53% Blame the GOP
RINO hunting may continue to destroy the GOP
