I like when Schumer cries and they have a good shot at pushing him there again. Schumer doesn't give two shites about Americans but he can definitely be pushed to tears by Republicans trying to deprive his beloved illegal aliens. Schumer is an anti American loser who is now threatening to shut down our government if we don't rob Americans to give freebies to illegal aliens.

There is something wrong with the new Democrats party. We have never chosen to put criminals ahead of what is good for America. Democrats have lost their way. They don't know what it means to be a true American. No country in the world chooses foreigners over their own people, especially when they are illegal. Democrats need new leadership.

Look dude, if you don't like our Constitution and our Republic you're free to move to another country.

Republicans threatened a government shutdown so many times in the past so get used to it because now the Democrats are doing it

the last time was dems siding with illegals as well. sad that the dems are so willing to make fed employees and many military do without paychecks to show support of illegal aliens/so low as to put illegals above military says all about them.

You ascribe powers to Trump that the slug doesn't have. You view him as a dictator. Why am I not surprised? Do you miss the old days at Stuttgart?

I was at Bergen-Belsen. Still have a few lampshades from there. And Trump can veto the bill authorizing back pay for the Deep State traitors.

What bill?

Typical of Republicans. When their methods of coercion blows up in their faces they quickly pivot to find new hostages to exploit.

You've already nominated the working class career employees.

Democrats don't want a shutdown. They want the deal they agreed on: a DACA fix, CHIP and disaster relief funding.

There is one party to blame and it's led by Senate Majority leader McConnell, Speaker Ryan, and John Cornyn.

This is a Trump Shutdown

"Dems"? How can "Dems" stop anything when the Republicans hold the Presidency, the House Majority, the Senate Majority, and the Supreme Court.

If the "Dems" could have stopped anything, then the corporate tax cut bill would have been a lot different. Less loopholes for private jet and golf course owners, and the tax cuts for the middle class would be permanent, not temporary.

Don't blame "Dems" because the the tea-party Republicans don't agree with the rest of the Republicans.

The Republicans own this one, let's see that "leadership" in action that President Trump is always carrying on about, here's his big chance to be a "leader" and not a "golfer". Oh too late, he already left for Mar-Lago. Oh well, there's always next time.

It takes 60 Senate votes to pass a spending bill Einstein. The Republicans are offering 47 of those votes. The Democrats are offering zero. It is a Schumer shutdown.

When a shutdown happened under Obama, Trump said it was on Obama because he was the president.

Now Trump is acting as if it isnít up to the president, well because now he is president.

Typical childish Trump.

If Trump cannot stomach the job, he should resign instead of making excuses.
