Dems Sell Out Dreamers, in exchange for.......?
81-18.  Shutdown Over
http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/37010...d-shutdown

Mitch McConnell making promises...gee...why does that sound so familiar? How did that pan out for the last person who sold their vote and their dignity in exchange for his word? I guess we're governing with a wink and a smile these days.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

Why the fuck would Schumer et al trust McConnell when McConnell hasn't even made good on his promises made regarding ACA stabilization and Medicare cuts to Sen. Collins to secure her vote for the GOP tax cuts.

If he reneges on promises made -to his own party- why the fuck should anyone trust him? The man is a weasel.

Oh, McConnell will keep his promise.  But he has no control of that lousy fuck Ryan and the even worse Orange Turd.

In 3 weeks we'll be back in crisis mode.

-and in three weeks the r's will makes the d's eat it like they owned it, for nothing, again. Case example no 5billion on why I consider a vote for the current crop of dems a waste. They can't force an issue when they're in the right, and have the other guys by the short and curlies.

Tiresome to constantly see the d's get owned by the r's but then often it is because they're suckers for doing the responsible thing and the opposition is flat out shameless and irresponsible.

I never agreed with this type of extortion to begin with.  Too much of this in government, and it's far too acceptable.

You know, a bunch of R's said the same thing..in a case of the selective amnesia that's been going around dc. My opinion..when you're dealing with extortionists you have to adjust what you consider to be practical or responsible politics..or you'll get practically bitchslapped and -then- the wingnuts will enforce their irresponsible ideology with no effective opposition.

This was the r's shutdown..that they could have ended at any time without any help from the d's. The d's didn't have the power to extort a fuckin thing. It's only by capitulation that they will now own it. The 18 no votes (some of them r's...wishing that the deal could be made even more cruel) are the only people worth a shit. The rest are asleep on the job.

Craven Whores vs Spineless Breathers. It doesn't matter who wins...because america loses either way.

I heard they agreed to give Trump everything he wanted. Not so much about all the stuff they got in exchange for bending to his every whim.
