    National Security problem at our border? What problem?

    You're on your own to fend for yourselves folks, we have a charter to catch and a play to watch.

    Dems fly to Puerto Rico on chartered jet, meet with lobbyists, see 'Hamilton' as shutdown drags on

    Despite a partial government shutdown with no end in sight, about 30 Democratic members of Congress traveled to Puerto Rico this weekend -- with their families and lobbyists -- for a winter retreat where they also planned to see a special performance of the hit Broadway show “Hamilton.”

    Those attending the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC gathering in San Juan also planned to meet Saturday with Puerto Rican officials to discuss ongoing cleanup efforts from Hurricane Maria, according to a report.

    “This year’s winter retreat promises to be our most widely attended yet with over 220 guests, including 39 Members of Congress and CHC BOLD PAC supporters expected to attend and participate!” a planning memo said.

    Come on Trump, get on with it, declare a national emergency, get the shutdown over, and get the wall built. The dems are not interested in governing, they are girding for 2020 and all out war.

    Big deal. They are meeting with their most important constituents: R.J. Reynolds, Facebook, Comcast, Amazon, PhRMA, Microsoft, Intel, Verizon, and unions like the National Education Association.

    Who stand to lose money if these Congress critters don't get back to work and vote. I'm betting the list of who went to P.R. will coincide with who votes to end the shutdown.

    Not much can get done at the moment, Senator McConnell isn’t in the Capital either.
