Four days from shutdown deadline, no deals in sight on budget or DACA Source: Cox Media Group

There are 78 comments on the WSOCTV story from Jan 15, 2018, titled Four days from shutdown deadline, no deals in sight on budget or DACA Source: Cox Media Group. In it, WSOCTV reports that:

President Donald Trump on Monday once again charged that Democrats in Congress were trying to force a government shutdown later this week by refusing to negotiate an acceptable budget deal for the military, and by not budging on what to do with hundreds of thousands of younger illegal immigrants in the U.S. under the Obama Administration's DACA program, as that issue continued to be a flash point for the two parties. Government funding runs out Friday night at midnight, and so far there is no evidence of progress in negotiations on a spending agreement for the rest of the current fiscal year; the President wants $54 billion more for the Pentagon in 2018 - Democrats have said they want an equal increase in domestic spending as well.

This bumbling Kremlin puppet racist POS POTUS can't make deals even with his Republicans having a majority in both houses and is called a moron by his own Secretary of State.

Some how this do-nothing incompetent "deserves respect"?

Someone tell the moron-in-chief that he has to earn respect, not demand it in between spewing more bigoted remarks and fake news.

Repubs want a E-Verify law into any deal. That would drive out millions of illegal aliens.

If government shuts down, and people are impacted negatively financially, and the Dimms are held accountable, do ya think the voters will remember?

Again the Democrats are willing to hurt the American middle class to protect illegal criminals. Opposing tax cuts and shutting the government down after labeling the middle class “ deplorables” will surely attract voters to the Democratic Party. After all she would Americans vote for the party that increased their income, decreased their taxes, reduced illegal immigration and destroyed a terrorist organization that the former administration helped create?

I can't believe Democrats are willing to shut down our government over DACA. The Ds obviously think more of illegal aliens than they do about our country. I would have never believed that was possible. Democrats are usually more sneaky about stabbing Americans in the back. If this isn't an example of picking the wrong battle, what the hell is?

My guess is they will continue to ignore the real issues and keep trying to defame the president and assisting Putin in trying to discredit our electoral process.
The fact is they have no viable candidate and the only “platform” they have is #resist and # destroy.

We have had shut downs before and like “a day without criminal aliens” most tax paying Americans are not effected and would not have noticed if it was not on the news. What the Republicans should do is refuse to give Pay to “ non essential” employees who do not work during the shut down.

Trump was close to a deal and then he screwed it up with his hideous remarks. He isn’t a leader, he is a disrupter of his own party’s goals.

“Americans vote for the party that increased their income, decreased their taxes, reduced illegal immigration and destroyed a terrorist organization that the former administration helped create.”

Thanks for confirming why Obama was elected!

You’re probably right, the democrats have always been cozy with dictators, they ignore real issues and do the bidding of their puppet master Putin, and they followed Putin’s orders for free, at least Hillary got rubles for helping her puppet master Putin.

The democrats have pizzed any chance they had of making gains in 2018, they are showing the middle class that they are eager to take food out of the mouths of middle class children and give it to illegals.

And that is the bottom line. Democrats want to take from the American worker and give to illegal aliens, otherwise they'll shut down our government. Real Americans wouldn't even think to do something like that. Democrats are dangerous to America. Throw the backstabbers out.

Threatening to shut down the government is a joke because the government doesn't shut down. When it's only non essential services that get shut down the threat becomes nothing more than a joke and for all you bozos buying into this political ploy, you deserve the fear.

You must live in a fantasy world because Democrats are on a bull run to taking back what they lost. Maybe look at news other than Fox News to find out the facts

Just wait until this stock market bubble pops and these fake tax cuts never surface for middle class and poor America. Then you'll be seen a different tune, mark my words.

It's all about votes. Dependent illegals vote for democrats, both while illegal, and after, when they become American citizens.
Democrats don't mind destroying our country to maintain power over you and I.
