As the governmet shutdown stretches on through week 3, pResident tRump sits in the corner he painted himself into and refuses to consider any funding bill which does not include his wall. It is HIS wall, after all - a monument to wasteful spending on something that isn't necessary and won't work as promised. Let's break this down...Spending Bill:
Right before the Congress broke for Christmas, one of the last acts of the Senate was to pass a spending bill unanimously
, with no additional funding for a border wall
. The House fucked it up by adding funding for the wall and sent it back to the Senate. By then, it was too late. Once the new Congress opened in January, the Democrats (now in charge in the House) passed the original bill the Senate had already passed in the previous congress
, and sent it to the Senate.
