The Democrats want you to believe this is a #TrumpShutdown and somehow the fault of the GOP. That is 100% false.
Democrats are holding our Military hostage over their desire to have unchecked illegal immigration. Can’t let that happen!
Great to see how hard Republicans are fighting for our Military and Safety at the Border. The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked. If stalemate continues, Republicans should go to 51% (Nuclear Option) and vote on real, long term budget, no C.R.’s!
Honestly, the misinformation being spread about the government shutdown is absolutely unbelievable to say the least. The Democrats are 100% responsible for this shutdown. Let me explain.
The argument that the Republicans have the majority in the House and Senate, so they are responsible for not being able to pass a funding bill is false. While they do have the majority, to pass a funding bill you need 60 votes. There is only 51 Republicans in the Senate. So they need Democrats to pass a bill like that. Also it’s important to note that the House did pass the bill, but it is being held up in the Senate.
Senate Democrats shut down the government over a bill they have no issues with-a bill that keeps government open and extends health insurance to nearly 9 million children. They opposed a bill they don’t even oppose. We do some crazy things in Washington, but this is madness. https://t.co/SW4YPzKTfc
Chuck Schumer is the Senate leader for the Democrats, he as well as Elizabeth Warren and many other Dems in the Senate dislike our elected President. That’s fine, don’t like him. But don’t disrupt the whole government to prove a point, then blame the other side because you don’t like someone.
The United States of America is officially in Day 1 of a government shutdown, thanks to #Senate Democrats. https://t.co/ePmf7cGaeF
Thanks to the #SchumerShutdown, we updated this.
Also I wanted to add that our military people DO NOT get paid during this shutdown. Please take a look at the Gofundme I created to help pay our great soldiers while they fight and put their lives on the line! Even if you can’t donate, please share! God bless!!
