After watching too much Fox News Donald Trump is willing to send the nation where the rank-and file Republican does not want to head. Nancy Pelosi comes out looking stronger by the minute. This is a massive political blunder as the nation will view this–correctly–as a GOP shutdown.
House Republicans passed a stop-gap spending bill that delivers $5 billion for Donald Trump’s border wall, setting up a standoff with the Senate that significantly raises the likelihood of a government shutdown this weekend.
There is now a choice: Enough Republicans get on board with Democrats to pass the stopgap, or keep the government shut down until Jan. 3, when Democrats in control will be able to open it up.
Tin-Ear politics from the GOP!
