    Let's see if the Democrats still want to keep our military, their families, and the CHIP kids suffering due to putting illegal aliens first. The ball is in their court. If they thwart it again, they're finished and might as well move to Mexico with the DACA illegals when Trump deportations them.

    I love you Americans. As much as some complain that your government doesn't work hard, I guarantee you would NEVER see a 1 am vote and the Canadian government officials NEVER work weekends, unless WW3 is on our doorsteps.

    Something to be said for that, and a vote is the right approach, make them put their money where their mouth is.

    It is called drama. Nothing will change between now and 1am, but they like to build up the drama. It is like a 13 year old girl waiting till the last second to return the text from the boy she likes.

    And you can see the effect it has on the party zealots, they are on this like stink on shit. I bet half of them will be waiting up for the vote so they can be the first to make a post about it

    People have been too dependent on "da gubermint" for far too long. It is sickening to see what this country has become.

    They announced this morning about the 1AM vote.

    Now McConnell said it could come earlier but there is some
    procedure that Schumer is blocking for that to happen.

    It's probably the best time to have it. Especially if the Dems
    are gonna cave.

    Less immediate shock for their far left base.

    Now I like that McConnell is having these votes. As mentioned
    in another thread...the Dems in danger in November (In the Senate)
    must keep voting to open the government.

    McConnell should vote tonight and tomorrow. Then, he needs to move
    the bar to 51 and dare those Dems not to vote for it again.

    Schumer is playing politics with their vote and so are they. With a threshold
    of 60, they all know it will fail...thus Schumer will allow them to vote
    to keep the Govt open for their Senate Campaigns in the fall.

    If the threshold switches to 51, then if they switch, the GOP just picked
    up 5 Senate Seats in November. They will all have exposed themselves.

    Just keep voting and continue to let the people see them voting against the
    Country. Their lame blame game will lose steam when the average person
    asks..."How can it be the fault of the GOP when you are voting against it?

    Interesting stuff
