Surrender: Trump Expected to Endorse Deal to End Shutdown

Democrats are utterly wrong not to fund part of the wall.   There are some areas that absolutely need it, while other areas that could do without.   Every border agent or former agent i have talked to has said the same thing.

Trump was utterly wrong in every facet of this fiasco.  Have the policy debate, grandstand as needed. But for him to shut down government for over a month over this is ridiculous — only surpassed by the sheeple trying desperately to pass ownership to the Dems. Pathetic.

 

You lose! Good day, sir.

If Trump declares a national emergency it'll get challenged in the courts. 

 

Even if it eventually survives a challenge it would likely be after his first term. 

 

If it does go through Trump has just opened a giant can of worms that can be exploited by the Democrats to enact some of their pet policies, or by someone in the future who is really looking for a way to nefariously circumvent congress due to an "emergency."

Was it utterly wrong for Republicans not to fund the wall when they had control of the House, Senate and White House for two years?

Actually if a lib was smart, which most of you aren't, you would use this opportunity to get DACA and some other stuff you want as a compromise.  Yet we have brain dead Dem leaders you guys butt lick.  A smart person would want border security, would actually want the "EXPERTS" to decide what we need (and they want a wall in high traffic areas), and would want DACA and some other more liberal or moderate issues settled.  Only a complete idiot doesn't understand this has gone on for decades and it is about time we fixed it.

If Trump were smart, he wouldn't have said on Friday that on Feb 15th that if he doesn't get his wall that he will either shut down the government again or declare a national emergency.  Neither of which will work out well and make him look weak once again.  He's doubling down to his conservative base.  Prepare to be humiliated once again if he follows through.

McConnell has pretty much said there isn't going to be another shutdown

 

How stupid will Trump look if his own party turns on him Feb 15th and overrides him?

I think Trump's veto of any border security/immigration bill on Feb. 15th is effectively neutered.  He just can't use it to shut down the government again.

 

The question then becomes will senate republicans dare to filibuster a House bill passed by Pelosi.  If they do and funding lapses again, then the shutdown is on them.  If they are hesitant to use the filibuster, then the power to shape the bill goes to Pelosi.

Senators who are up in 2020 will have hell to pay if people don't get paid again
