Republicans control all three branches of government yet somehow it's Democrats' fault we have a shutdown? Our Reps and Senators have released statements blaming everybody but themselves. Chuck is right out there.

Included in the GOP budget plan was CHIP re-authorization on the condition that we spend $18 billion for Trumps wall that Mexico is supposed to pay for, which Chuck now blames Dems for not passing. The only CHIP bill Chuck voted FOR included a provision that sabotaged the Affordable Healthcare Act. It passed the House but not the Senate. So now we get this rhetoric that, of course, blames Dems for Republican situations.

Chuck Fleischmann...

“I cannot fathom how Senate Democrats, knowing the severity of the issues in question, acted with such insensitivity using our children and our military as pawns, putting party over country."

Oh and about that military pay thing Chuck is all over...Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to allow a vote on paying the military through the GOP-Trump shutdown tantrum. So it the Democrats fault the GOP shut down the government, refused to pay our troops, and took healthcare away from children? If we only had a responsible and honest media you wouldn't need people like me to tell you these things.

Who would Trump fire for causing the government shutdown?

Trump spoke to “Fox & Friends” in 2013 and was asked who would be fired during a government shutdown, as shown in a clip posted by "Morning Joe."

“Well, if you say who gets fired it always has to be the top,” Trump said. “I mean, problems start from the top and they have to get solved from the top and the president’s the leader."
