We are about 24 hours before the house has a Democratic Majority and tomorrow cannot come soon enough. With that said...

JUST RELAX AND ENJOY THE RIDE!


This was only part of one of his tweets lasterday but it was the creepiest part. In the meantime, leaders from both parties are expected to meet the occupant at the White House today.
On Thursday, House Democrats plan to use their new majority to vote through measures that would reopen nearly all of the shuttered federal agencies through the end of September, at funding levels Senate Republicans have previously agreed to. Those spending bills contain scores of priorities and pet projects for lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

The Democratic proposal holds out one exception: The Department of Homeland Security, which oversees border security, would keep its current level of funding, with no new money for a border wall. The plan would also extend the department’s budget only through Feb. 8, allowing Democrats to revisit funding for key parts of Trump’s immigration policy in a month.

The president has asked for $5 billion in border money, far beyond the $1.3 billion Democrats plan to vote through this week. Trump, who tweeted his opposition to the plan Tuesday, has reiterated he had no plans to back down.
(Boldface mine; this is governance) This should be an interesting meeting today.

As we begin a new year, I am holding my tongue about who is and who is not going to run for the Office of President of the United States. What I want to see, hear and participate in is a healthy dialogue of policies and ideas about who I will vote for. I know we will have plenty of wonderful and not so wonderful candidates to choose from, so we have that going for us. Until then, I want to see what happens in Congress.

So happy 2019, let's do this!

and
Raine

Sooooo yeah.. guess what else the down has blocked from normal operation?

The system used for employment verification by the federal gov't to check for undocumented foreign workers.

Oh yeah, and the National Park Service too. He has literally turned our country into a landfill.

wow.

This is truly a cult.

I'm not surprised at that at all Raine. Republicans are always glad to sell out even their own family if it will get them more money or power.

Howdy folks, jes' passing through.

Isn't it cute how Senator-Elect Romney is already tangling with the President?

I didn't care for Mitt the Twit much, but I'll say this. Cutting his teeth in Democratically-led Massachusetts FORCED him to compromise. Maybe he can be somebody the Dems can work with, even if they disagree with him.

That's true, Tri.

I stillt take it with a grain of salt.

I guess all that we need to see now is Putin's check to Trump. Say, isn't that sound over there Ronald Reagan spinning in his grave?
